Ingredients (4 servings)
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 1/8 cups chicken stock (500 ml)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ounce butter (30 g)
  • a little salt
  • 6 1/3 ounces Arborio or Carnaroli rice (180 g)
  • 1/2 glass dry white wine
  • 1/2 ounce butter (15 g)
  • 1 1/2 ounces grated parmesan (40 g)


Step 1: Risotto

Peel and finely dice the onion. Heat the chicken stock.

Heat the olive oil and half of the butter in a sauté pan. Add the onion, and sweat for 3 minutes without letting it brown. Season with a touch of salt.

Add the rice, and cook for 2 minutes over a very low heat, stirring until it becomes translucent and all the grains are coated.

Tip in half a glass of dry white wine and wait until it is completely absorbed.

Add hot chicken stock to cover, and stir.

When the rice has absorbed this stock, pour in a little more and continue to cook, stirring until it is absorbed.

Repeat the operation until the rice is fully cooked, about 18 to 20 minutes. Season to taste.
