How to make risotto with Champagne

  1. Start with the stir-fry. Cut the onion very finely and fry it in a pan with double handles with the butter (half the dose indicated in the ingredients).
  2. Meanwhile, make sure the broth has reached a boil.
  3. Toast the rice in a pan over high heat.
  4. After about 2 minutes add about half a bottle of Champagne .
  5. Keep stirring with a wooden spoon and then, once the alcohol has evaporated, lower the heat and cook the risotto.
  6. When needed, add the broth so that the rice is always covered in liquid
  7. When the broth has been absorbed and there will still be a few minutes before cooking the risotto , insert another large glass of Champagne.
  8. The risotto is ready, turn off the flame and stir the rice with cheese and butter and season with salt and pepper.
  9. Make sure the risotto is nice and soft, and as a pairing… obviously we recommend a nice glass of Champagne!

The dish is ready, enjoy your meal : it will be perfect for a romantic dinner !
