You might know that Christine Rovelli is Treasurer at Finnair; what you probably didn't know is that she is also a recognized test-kitchen cook! We thought it best to put her skills to the test and take this ISTAT Chats to the stovetop. Join two Italian (American) industry veterans Christine Rovelli and Bryson Monteleone, Chair of the ISTAT Appraisers Program, as they celebrate their Italian heritage. Follow along as they cook-up some risotto while sharing stories and advice, most of which will be aviation related, and even more of which will probably involve some wine!
