The Culinary Institute of America, in Hyde Park, New York, is one of the leading schools for the training of professional chefs. Each year their graduates are taken into the kitchens of great restaurants throughout the world. Francis Lopez is a chef instructor at the institute, and the following is his family recipe for Rice Pudding with Fresh Fruit.
1 cup converted rice
3 cups water
1 cup raisins
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese, pureed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups sliced fresh fruit
In a large saucepan, combine the rice, water, raisins, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar, and lemon juice. Stir to combine. Cover and bring to a simmer. Cook until the rice is tender, approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 to 10 minutes until the water is absorbed. Let cool. Fold in the ricotta cheese and vanilla extract.

Mold in individual molds and turn out onto a serving plate, or place a 1/2-cup mound in the center of 8 dessert plates. Surround with fresh fruit.
