Just in time for the holidays… I seriously cannot think of a sexier dish to make for that special someone in your life. This recipe definitely serves more than 2 people but risotto is also wonderful the next day. I also have been known to turn leftover risotto into arancini (recipe to come) so if you are making this for 2, don’t be scared of leftovers.
Risotto has been given a bad reputation for taking too long and being too labour intensive. Firstly I will admit, it does take time. I have made countless risotto meals and I would say from beginning to end it takes about a solid hour. What I will also say to the labour part is that NO, you do not have to stand over your pan stirring every second of that hour. The rice can be left alone for a couple minutes here and there to allow the broth to absorb into the rice. You don’t want to walk away from your pan to plop in front of the TV, no, definitely not that but feel free to busy yourself with something else if you need to.
