    Chef floWer's Note:

    We cook this dish when we are very hungry as it is filling. It has one of my many favourite ingredients which is Lemon! I use chicken stock from a carton. The recipe comes from a book called 'Modern Classics' Book 1 by Donna Hay

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #51* DH has made Risotta many times and I never paid attention. I prepared 1/2 recipe as written for 2 of us (who ate PLENTY !!) and have enough for another meal ! Loved the lemon tang -- and only deviation was a splash of white wine while rice was toasting -- DH's suggestion. Other than taking some time for attention, is not at all difficult and tastes WAY better than "any old" rice ! Thanks for posting, Chef floWer !!

      My first time trying risotto and it turned out beautiful! I followed a few other reviewers suggestion and added the fresh lemon juice from one lemon. It really gave it that extra punch of flavor! Topped it with sauteed mushrooms and used it as a side to a roast. Thanks so much for a fabulous, easy to follow recipe!
