Hi Gennaro! I have a question for cooking this risotto: Why do you use butter ánd olive oil to sweat the unions in the beginning?

Keep stirring... Why you stop stirring, add more broth, keep stirring..... I can still remember hearing my mother ordering me as a kid in the kitchen, helping her make this dish I loved. You like risotto, you gotta work to make... You stir, more stir, add more broth, stir... You father crazy. I tell him we flood back field of our 3 crops European rotation and we canna grow real Italian Arboriculture rice.... But he no wanna do. Because he no from my family provide, so no likes Risotto. Just Snob Romano types, eat fussy pasta. QUICK, eat you risotto before him come home and we hide the Arboriculture so he no see we eat risotto. Crazy man. No like risotto, no eat snails, no eat frog legs, just boring Italian food from his place... Say food from the 'orthodox have no taste. No hot chilli... I no like hotta chilli... You like? How canna Southern people eat hot chilli? Nearly kill you, burn so hot. In hot weather in South. Risotto branch very simple and white... Easy. Just keep stirring the pan... Put in some fresh artichoke hearts from the garden I plant. Is ready now, nice white beautiful artichoke. Good for liver and health... Keep stirring... Not too much broth, ma no too dry...."I normally never got along too well with mum, but when she made risotto, our mother daughter relationship suddenly improved, though her husband and wife one with my father deteriorated and he would look at me and moan 'I thought my daughter was a princess of refined tastes, not some risotto eating peasant, like her mother... ". He' d recover from his fatherly disappointment with risotto loving daughter, no doubt, I figured, as I hoped I to fresh delicious, creamy tasty risottobowl and asked for more. Then my whining entitled young brother, designated family Prince would come in and see me eating my second bowl of risotto and cry 'Where' s mine? She ate it all! It's not fair. Just because she is older than me... " In between mouthfuls I gobbled down before he could stick his spoon in and grab some risotto I'd mumble '... And smarter and faster and, besides, I' m dad's Princess and you are just a boring dumb Prince..." Mim would intervene. "Shut your mouth eating at table. Don't put your spoon in others'plate. Share. Nobody is so important.... Kings and prince's and princesses all fed the poor peasants. And you, smart Princess can go make more risotto for your brother, the Prince of this house... ". That passed me off no end. I had eaten all mine. He was too late. And didn't merit any risotto, for being so slow and dumb. So why should I spend ages stirring the risotto again, just for him? Then dad would appear, get wind of what was really going on concerning risotto, source of all family disharmony in his house and decree there would never be any risotto consumed under his family roof ever again. A fearful quiet would suddenly prevail as we all feigned paternal respect expected. But, fortunately, we were all in on the plot to hide the precious packet of rare arboriculture rice mum had managed to buy out in the vast, remote Australian wilderness, from a travelling imported small goods traveller van. It was safely hidden from angry father who had banned that rice and we could make risotto again, once he sent off down the pub with his Australian mates. I soon discovered that food can be a great regulator of family relationships. Not just in my own highly emotionally volatile immigrant family in youth, but also in the Australian ones, when I was invited to dine on food immigrant kids would kill for ie boiled country style Austin mutton with 3 veggies, that always included potato. If there were Brussels spry outs served as one of the 3 veg, Austin style, father's would often shout 'You' very been married for years now. You should know I hate Brussels sprouts! Next time there's Brussels sprouts on my plate, I'outta here and you're on your own. Forget serving desert. You get your just desserts. I'll be serving divorce papers on you, ungrateful, bitch. You might take some advice from the Johnny Cash song and learn to understand your man... " I still had not mastered English language well, yet. But that is how I learned the meanings of desert and how to distinguish this from dessert. And why Brussels Sprouts are called that and how come so many Australians hate them. I asked my parents who said it's because they come from some uncivilised, barbarian part of Europe and Australians had never heard of them, but we don't are to worry about it because we are civilised, not Australians and don't eat crop like Brussels sprouts, kale, and such Eastern European type 'krauti' swine food we grow to feed the farm pigs on. I then married an Australian guy who said 'I am an easy going tolerant sort of guy. But, if you ever serve me Brussels sprouts, it' s the end of our marriage... " (I kept that idea in reserve. Could come in handy if I needed to find a quick, easy, mutually agreed upon escape from marital slavery... Easier than pie. Just serve up some Brussels sprouts). I don't love these sorry outs, though I don't have a pathological aversion to them, as many Australian men do and I know they are packed with cancer fighting health benefits. So, I asked my ex husband why he was so down on the humble sprouts, since he himself was a humble working class underdog. I learned that in poor families and even in private religious boarding schools, like he sometimes attended and in poor workers 'bed, meals and cut lunch provided' Melbourne boarding houses, 'cut lunch' typically involved 'Brussels sprout sandwiches" on stale white bread, the left overs from the previous evening meal they served, which also involved Brussels Sprouts. Can you imagine eating a Brussels Sprouts sandwich? I made one and tried it. It was disgusting. Now I understand why men hate these sprouts in Australia and I am con iterate enough to not serve them I to them, despite their many health benefits. I did serve some up once, disgusted in some other food to a male I liked, who had made his 'no sprouts' rule clear to me. But he detected them, finely chopped u and invisible in his food. I thought it was just their colour and shape they hate, but it seems to be also their taste.

Couple of years ago, people in my country (me including) thought that risotto is separately cooked rice, any rice, mixed with separately cooked vegetables. I am so glad we have evolved :D

Made the asparagus version today. What a scary dish to cook, but so tasty. Mint really brings a uncharacteristic flavour, that complements the final olive oil drizzle.

Basic risotto is excellent and really easy to make. Just stir like every minute or so and make sure the bottom is not getting sticky or burned. Use a wooden spoon. Takes about 20 minutes usually. Keep adding stock as time progresses. You want your risotto a little on the runny side but not too runny. A little patience and a watchful eye is key. Butter and Parmesan is important too

actually he added very little broth the original white rissoto doesnt have selery and when served it should not be as dense as this it should flow flat to the plate not be gravity-proof
