Recipe for the Weekend: Perfect Risotto

Posted: Updated:

This classic luxurious risotto dish is perfect for autumn and will leave you happy and satisfied. People think that risotto is time consuming, but it should actually be the opposite. I prefer to use the carnaroli rice as it's more suitable for this dish and has a more robust flavour. A good quality Gorgonzola cheese will make the dish and a bottle of Barbera D'Asti is a great pairing.

Enjoy the weekend!
