Our very own Chef Ilaria Carratù gives us a very Italian recipe which is simple, tasty and easy to pair with wine! Ingredients for 2 People 2/3 cup rice bottarga 1 cup Reggiano Riserva 9 oz. burrata cheese ½ cup butter ½ onion 1 liter vegetable broth salt extra virgin olive oil ½ cup white wine.
Preparation Begin by cutting the burrata and setting aside, leaving a few pieces for garnish. Grate the Reggiano Riserva cheese and set aside. Take a pot and drizzle a bit of extra virgin olive oil and add two tablespoons of butter over low heat. Add the chopped onion. Sauté for a few minutes. Add the rice, mix well till it gets a toasted brown color. Add a pinch of salt & your white wine. Continue by gradually adding the vegetable stock, and halfway through cooking the rice, add the burrata cheese. Stir constantly. Add the bottarga, as much as preferred but do not overdo it as you don’t want to overpower the taste of the burrata. When the rice is cooked, add the rest of the butter and Reggiano Riserva. Plate your Risotto in a deep dish, and let it expand over the entire surface of the dish. Sprinkle a bit of bottarga over your risotto and a few fresh pieces of burrata that you previously set aside. Your very special Reggiano Riserva Cheese Risotto with Burrata & Bottarga is ready to be eaten! Buon Appetit! Wine Pairing:Farnito Chardonnay I.G.T.
