Parmigiano Reggiano cheese risotto
Parmigiano Reggiano has a very concentrated flavour: an authentic expression of its area of origin and of Italy as a whole.
This cheese, the most famous in the world, is essential in order to add character to the risotto, giving it a perfect creamy texture.
Makes 4 servings:
- 280g Carnaroli Gran Riserva brand rice
- 30g Onion
- 1dl Chardonnay wine
- 2l Chicken broth
- 50g Butter
- 80g 24 month aged Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
For the Parmigiano cheese chips:
- 80g Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Place oven paper on a tray and cover with grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese then place in the microwave for 2 minutes, remove and let cool finally breaking into fourths.
Chop finely the onion and simmer with a pat of butter, add the rice and toast it carefully for almost three minutes then let add the wine. Cook until the wine evaporates and begin adding the broth for fifteen minutes until the rice is cooked.
Remove the rice from the flame and cover and let it rest for 2 minutes.
