It so much fun to teach risotto to home cooks. Although it looks like an impressive “restaurant” dish, it’s easy and fast to cook at home. The secret to making good risotto is in the pan.

Lots more surface area in the pan means lots more room for the rice to absorb the stock, making the finished dish creamy and decadent – without adding cream!
