RISOTTO AL TARTUFO: THE PERFECT FIRST COURSE

Risotto is usually eaten as a first course in Italy. When making risotto, pay attention that you heat the rice in a flat pan first, and afterwards keep on adding your hot stock until the rice is cooked. Make sure you do not boil your rice in water as usual!

What do you need?

25 grams of Summer Black Truffle Slices or 2 spoons of White Truffle Oil

Approximately 1 litre of Vegetable Stock

180 grams of Carnaroli rice

1 small onion, chopped very fine

2 tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

250 ml of dry white wine

50 grams of butter, diced

50 grams of finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano DOP
