I cannot tell you how many hours I spent making risotto whilst I was the recipe developer extraordinaire at Thermomix in Australia. I remember even going in on a weekend and making batch after batch of stodgy dinner porridge to try and reach a happy medium between what had always been seen as the best risotto ever to close the great divide to what I knew to be a great risotto. We never did come to terms with it.

There are so many opinions out there as to what makes a good risotto. Heck there is a world wide summit on risotto every year. (This should be on my travel hit list I feel!) an effort to top the basic Summer Lemon Risotto that appears in Keeping it Simple I have decided that the only thing better than lots of creamy rice is lots of creamy rice with lots of creamy cheese. Get ready for some lactose intolerance. Seriously good rice. Add whatever you want to lighten it up, I used peas and sliced spring onions. Think roasted fennel, fresh herbs, spinach leaves that you allow to get wilted by the heat of the risotto, or roasted pumpkin, capsicum, sauteed mushrooms...need I go on? You get my drift. Risotto is delicious if you get it right. And my friends, I believe I have got it right. Let this be your go to base risotto recipe, and please enjoy...
