Classic Risotto


6oz Yellow Onion (brunoised)

2 Garlic Cloves (minced)

8oz Butter (divided)

6oz Dry White Wine

1 ½ # Arborio Rice

2 ½ Quarts of Chicken

5oz Parmesan Cheese

Salt and Pepper (To Taste)

Serve with grilled shrimp


  • In pan, add 4oz of butter, the onions and minced garlic and cook until translucent.
  • Add the Arborio Rice and fold in with aromatics. It is very important to fold and not stir to keep the grains of the rice intact.
  • Add white wine and reduce, once reduced add the chicken broth (warm) a little at a time. Keep adding broth as soon as the rice absorbs the liquid and repeat the process until rice is cooked.
  • Last fold in the parmesan cheese and the rest of butter . Season to Taste.
  • Serve with grilled shrimp
