The result is a velvety smooth, creamy risotto to brighten up your table every day.

Traditional cooking: 15-17 minutes. Boil 1 liter of water (4 cups). Pour the contents of the packet into a large frying pan and gradually add the boiling water, wait for each addition of water to be absorbed before adding more. The amount of water indicated is sufficient for an "al dente" consistency. We recommend that you taste during cooking to ensure the consistency is to your liking. When ready, serve the Risotto seasoned with a few drops of Carli Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Microwave cooking: Microwave ovens have different power levels so we recommend cooking on high for 16 minutes, and then begin checking. On average it should take 18 minutes. Pour 0.8 liters (3 and a half cups) of water and the contents of the packet into a microwave oven dish, and set to high for 18 minutes. We recommend that you taste during cooking to ensure the consistency is to your liking. When cooked the Risotto is ready to be served with the delicious addition of a few drops of Carli Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Where risotto comes from

We have the Po Plain, and specifically the Lombardy region, to thank for the invention of risotto, because it was here, starting from the 14th century, that rice growing was first established and spread. The first documentary references to boiled rice dishes date to the 16th century, but the authentic risotto recipe – with the rice cooked in the pot and the gradual addition of stock until fully absorbed – dates to the 18th/19th centuries.
