"Risotto is one of those dishes that people love, but rarely make at home. Why is this? Well, for years you’ve heard people complain that it is too time consuming, it doesn’t yield good results, and it’s easier to order at a restaurant where you know it will turn out right. It’s become the big joke in my household. Anytime it’s made you will hear my husband or I yell in our best Gordon Ramsey voice, 'This is %@^&! Throw it out and begin again!' Ya know what?
It does come out good, and yes you have to keep your eye on it, but it’s not that difficult. Keep the heat relatively low and make sure you don’t overcook the rice. If you plan the rest of your meal around the fact that you are keeping an eye on the risotto, you’ll be fine. I honestly love standing at my stove sometimes, slowly stirring over a warm pot. I feel like this is cooking at its best! Once you get the hang of it, you can interchange the flavors and really make it your own. It’s so delicious and a nice change of pace for a side dish to not try at home." —Maeghan L. of The Way to His Heart
