The Italian Kitchen – Summer 3 Course Risotto Dinner

Risotto, from the word riso, meaning “rice”, from the northern Italian region of Lombardy, is a dish made with arborio or carnaroli rice cooked with many additions of broth until it reaches its creamy consistency.  Often thought to be a laborious dish to make, in this hands-on class, Chef Jennifer Berry will show you just how easy it can be! You will learn the basics of risotto: how and when to add broth, how much you really need to stir – or actually, how little. You will learn how to make this ahead for a dinner party and reheat and several ways to customize the flavors.
