This is a dish that should be eaten hot, as soon as it is removed from the heat. Since it has a very delicate taste, you can accompany it to a second with a more robust flavor , for example a roast of red meat . The ideal accompanying wine is a white, rigorously still, not too strong.

The variants of the Primo Chef recipe

Like any self-respecting recipe, this too can have variations with respect to the suggested ingredients. For example, for those who do not love onion too much, we could hypothesize the use of leeks cut into very thin slices . The leek has in fact a more delicate taste but which still manages to enhance the risotto. The choice of rice could also fall on the Arborio , which keeps cooking well.


Risotto with sparkling wine is a dish that should preferably be eaten as soon as it is ready . However, if there is some left over, you certainly don’t have to throw it away. You can keep it in the fridge for no more than a couple of days, then reheating it in a water bath to make it regain its original softness .
