Cook-Together Risotto

The Cook-Together is intended to be a thread at which we all can cook the same dish and share our experiences in a non-competitive, collaborative manner:
  • something you've always wanted to make at home (and may enjoy out) but rarely have made, or haven't made successfully;
  • for which special but locatable ingredients may be used, but for which expensive special equipment is not required;
  • that includes techniques, ingredient combinations, or other elements that intrigue you;
  • from a different cuisine than that of the previous Cook-Together dish;
  • that demands some time and effort, but that rewards that effort for even those first approaching it; and
  • that motivates you to try it out, ask questions, serve it to friends, and share photos and stories.
As we cook and compare, we post our recipes, cooking ideas, photos, instructions, and insight.

You're never too late for an DiscussCooking Cook-Together. While all have a specific starting time, none have an end time, and there are many of us eager to see what you will do with the cook-together recipes. So don't hesitate to contribute if you're finding this thread weeks or months after its start: by posting your own ideas, questions, or results, you can bump activity back up on this thread in no time!


Risotto - Many variations of Risotto that you can make and any will be fine to post your results, successes or mishaps.

oooh I love this idea! Off I go to find a risotto recipe that I want to try.

I've never even been in this section of the forums; I need to go do some more investigating to see what else I've been missing.

I'm going to make mine later this week and I've chosen a simple classic: Milanese Risotto.

I wish I had a nice camera but we'll see what my trusty old point-and-shoot Minolta can come up.

NAChef, I haven't forgotten, but I was busy with the Mushroom Challenge.

Risotto in the coming week.

This sounds like fun. Has anyone made risotto using unpolished (brown) rice?
