The mention of milan produces immediate thoughts of the wonderful risotto named after the city. Risottos are best made using a special kind of italian rice called “arborio” which is cooked with stock, garlic and a wide variety of other ingredients. The trick to prepare a perfect risotto is slow cooking of rice and judicious stirring. The risotto must be prepared as close to serving time as possible as it is best when freshly prepared.
