The mention of Milan produces immediate thoughts of the wonderful risotto named after the city. Risottos are best made using a special kind of Italian rice called “arborio” which is cooked with garlic and onions.

The trick to prepare a perfect risotto is slow cooking of rice and judicious stirring. The risotto must be prepared as close to serving time as possible as it is best when freshly prepared.

Serve other Italian dishes with this like Pizzas and Garlic Bread .
