Risotto is a simple dish, but the process of making it can be complex. There are only 4-5 steps in making risotto, but it is important to get each step right so your risotto is creamy and flavorful with just the right texture. This book will teach you the technique to make perfect risotto. The author mastered risotto while studying at Apicius International School of Hospitality in Florence, Italy. While practicing making risotto in class and at home, she discovered several important things no recipe talks about. In this book, she explains those techniques to help you master risotto. The first 8 chapters of the book describe the secrets the author learned about risotto over the years and take you through the steps of making basic risotto. These short chapters focus on one step each, including access to 11 brief instructional videos that demonstrate the important points. You may wish to read and watch the first 8 chapters before attempting to cook along. After you have reviewed the process of making risotto and have the ingredients for basic risotto, try to cook along, using the first 8 chapters and the 11 brief videos as your guide. Once you know the steps for making risotto, you can create your own variations. Risotto is a great dish to improvise with, and if you are tuned in to the seasons, your local ingredients and your own developing risotto skills you will never want for a comforting dish. In the second part of the book, the author shares her favorite risotto recipes for different seasons and occasions. Feel free to try them, modify them, and turn them into your own favorite risotto.
