This is really good. this was my first time making risotta and I was a bit nervous. Not sure why, this came together easily and it was yummy. I will continue to make this, thank you for sharing and introducing me to risotto at home.

Delicious! Used 1 litre of chicken stock and 12 cl of white wine for the liquid and stirred and stirred and stirred. ;-) Served with lamb and mint sauce - an excellent dinner. Thank you Mallina!

I first tried this recipe as is, with no substitutes, and it was absolutely delicious! I then did it using beef broth, and keeping all else as is, and it was absolutely delicious as well. This is now my standard base recipe which I will add or substitute, but it's the one I start with, and it just keeps being delicious! Thank you so much for posting.

Absolutely fantastic! My husband told me he hated ristto but I persuaded him to try some when I made this and he is converted (not an easy task). We have had this regularly since and will continue to do so! Thank you for posting this recipe :D

Very tasty and the directions were easy to follow. I made it as written this time, but I'm sure other additions would be great too.

Wow! That was amazing. I used it as a base risotto recipe, upped the garlic one clove and then just started adding things towards the end. Left out the cheese and used some homemade spinach/basil pesto and zucchini along with some shredded chicken breast. My husband and I love trying new foods and this is now on the list. Time-consuming with all the stiring, but worth every second. YUMMY!

I had been leery in the past about making risotto. I heard horror stories about how much work it was, and all the mixing involved. This was the first recipe I used, and the one I will continue to stick with! The risotto came out phenomenal. Unfortunately, I couldn't find saffron, but even without, it was delicious. My boyfriend begs me to make this more often - definitely a 5 star recipe. I'd definitely love to try using saffron (if I can locate it!! many of the stores by me do not carry it) next time.
