1. Sauté the onion until soft in a deep pan with olive oil and add the risotto rice. Deglaze with white wine. Stir in bay leaf, salt, a pinch of sugar and 2 tablespoons of Kikkoman soy sauce. Let it simmer for a while to reduce the white wine.

3. Briefly toss the cherry tomatoes, rosemary and garlic in a hot pan with balsamic vinegar, 1 tablespoon Kikkoman soy sauce and sugar to glaze.
