I have had an epiphany.
It’s nothing too profound, but it is life changing.
It’s a risotto epiphany.
I found a recipe last week for a courgette risotto and thought that since I had all the ingredients to hand – in a rare, stars-aligning-themselves moment – I would give it a try.
It led me to the secret of the perfect risotto and it is this.
Butter. Lots and lots of butter. Namely, 75g per person.
I have always been OK at cooking risottos, but I always felt that there was something missing. This, my friends, is it. The magic ingredient that brings everything together into creamy, delicious, hangs-off-your-fork-in-perfect-strands harmony.
Now I feel duty bound to share this with the world.
(You can find the recipe here that set me off on the life-changing pathway.)
