The Perfect Risotto

“Making risotto is difficult” and “It always takes at least 45 minutes before it’s ready” are complaints we often hear about risotto. Actually, making the perfect risotto can be easy, fast and very, very rewarding if you know how to do it. After this cookery workshop you’ll be able to make fantastic creamy risottos in lots of different variations!

We prepare 5 dishes: risotto con mele e pancetta (risotto with apple and pancetta, also with home-made vegetarian pancetta for vegetarians), risotto ai frutti di mare (with vongole, shrimp and herbs) also in the version risotto al pomodoro fresco for vegetarians, a risotto with black rice, tomato and basil coulis and the risotto con verdure di stagione (with season’s vegetables and cheese) in Spring/Summer or the wonderful risotto con zucca e funghi porcini (with pumpkin and porcini mushrooms) during Autumn/Winter. Our dessert of oven-baked pears filled with ricotta and chocolate (Autumn/Winter) or ricotta cream with fruit marinated in wine (Spring/Summer) will complete this workshop.

Plus tips on using other ingredients and cooking methods (types of rice, pressure cooker yes or no etc) to make il risotto perfetto so that you can surprise friends and family with this classic Northern Italian dish in all sorts of fantastic combinations.

The groups can have between 8 and 12 participants.
