Risotto Recipe (Serves 4)
- 5 1/2 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1 1/2 cups Vialone Nano or Carnaroli rice (10 ounces)
- Pinch of saffron threads
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- Saffron threads are to be soaked in a cup of hot water or broth in order to fully enjoy the aroma and properties of this precious spice. Cover it and leave it in a warm place for 40 minutes before use.
- In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a simmer; keep warm.
- In a heavy-based saucepan heat half the butter over medium heat.
- Add the onion finely chopped and cook until softened and translucent.
- Add the rice and stir with a wooden spoon until toasted and opaque, about 5 minutes.
- Pour the wine into the toasting rice stirring until it is absorbed and then add the broth a ladle at a time: the liquid should never be completely absorbed.
- Cook until the rice is tender and creamy and yet still a little al dente (about 15 minutes).
- Add the red infusion with the saffron threads, turn off the heat and stir in the remaining butter and Parmigiano until mixed well. Cook, stirring until the wine is absorbed.
