We're continuing with our Foodie Friday theme with our Recipe of the Week.

Risi e Bisi is a risotto of rice and peas with fegato, a delicious dish of liver and onions. This tasty meal is cooked by chef Contessa Passi in her home near Venice with Viking's Karine Hagen. Hungry yet?

In November and December, public houses in nearly every European town offer mulled wine as a delicious antidote to the season’s chill.

Introduction
Viking Cruises offers both river cruises and ocean cruises through two product lines. A global corporation headquartered in the United States with main operational headquarters in Basel, Switzerland, the company was established in 1997 by a Scandinavian and Dutch consortium led by Torstein Hagen. Initially the company purchased four Russian ships and provided a Russian river-cruise product to Europeans. The following year the company purchased additional ships and continued to cater to the European market. In 2000, the company expanded into the American market, establishing U.S. headquarters as Viking River Cruises in Los Angeles, California. Through rapid expansion, the purchase of KD River Cruise lines, and unprecedented new builds, the river cruise division grew to be the world’s largest river cruise, and currently offers cruises along the rivers of Europe, Russia, Ukraine, China, Southeast Asia, and Egypt. In May of 2013, the company announced the launch of a new small-ship ocean cruising division, scheduled to begin with the maiden season of Viking Star in spring of 2015, and featuring Baltic and Mediterranean itineraries.
