    In America we usually think of Italy as being the land of "Pasta", but rice plays an equally important role in the Italian kitchen. Risotto, made from Arborio rice, is one of Italy's main "classic" dishes. Synonymous with the "Cucina" of Northern Italy, risotto is linked to many different regional and popular traditions, which have given us a vast variety of recipes for its preparation.

    Almost any ingredient can be incorporated into a risotto. Traditional risotto is made with herbs, cheese, shellfish, sausage, or even frogs legs. Many vegetables can be used, such as artichokes, asparagus, wild mushrooms, and white truffles. Further variations include exotic fish, squid ink, lemons, radicchio, strawberries and champagne risottos. Easy to make and enjoyed by all, Italy's world renowned gourmet rice dishes can now be served in the comfort of your own home.
