ITALIAN FOOD RECIPES
The risotto, the Italian name for cooking rice Italian style, requires particular cooking techniques, available only in Italian cuisine. They consist in how to use the broth/stock and how to use the white wine.
For the broth/stock the most important is not adding all at the same time, but just a little at time, waiting until well absorbed by the rice and then adding again. This operation must be repeated until cooking is ready. In our recipes we give cooking timetable and in our recipes with pictures we show how to make it step-by-step.
The other particular cooking technique is sprinkling with white wine. We have a step-by-step photographed description in our cooking techniques table and in each recipe with pictures.
It is also important do not stir. While you must stir the pasta for avoiding it to stuck, the rice must be handled with care, using only a wooden spoon , stirring gently only when cooking begins, just for blending well the flavors.
The result should be a rice with thick grains, well separated, as you can see in all our recipes with pictures step-by-step.
The pictures of rice recipes are linked directly to the photographed recipe, the text to the table of ingredients. The Italian name is linked to the Italian site. The dishes are added in order of arrival.
