We've partnered with Simmer, a new app that allows you to generate step-by-step recipe videos that you can create, watch, and share from your very own kitchen. In the coming weeks and months, we'll continue sharing instructional videos that will teach you how to create tantalizing dishes from JBF Award winners, Beard House chefs, and even Beard himself, all prepared in James Beard's historic New York City kitchen.

When it comes to comfort food, nothing beats a creamy, heartwarming risotto. To update the classic Italian dish with a seasonal spin, this recipe uses bright English peas to carry it through heavy dinnertime rotation well beyond the winter season. In the step-by-step video below, senior editor Elena North-Kelly demonstrates how to whip up this simple, satisfying dish at home.
