Introduction to Risotto

Presented by Paul Niddrie
About the class

Unlock the secrets to divinely luxurious risotto with Chef Paul Niddrie in this Introduction to Risotto. We’ll cover everything from creating the perfect stock and nailing your flavour base to getting an ultra-creamy texture, cooking your rice perfectly and of course garnishing it with the most delectable ingredients.

We’ll also chat about flavour variations, using alternative grains and some unique cheeses to create savoury depth and character. We will then sit down together and feast on the ultimate winter warmer – a sublime bowl of Mushroom Risotto.

Come and learn how to master one of the most famous Italian staples in the comfort of our kitchen.


Your Menu…

  • Prosecco and Antipasti to begin
  • An incredible Mushroom Risotto made on Roast Chicken Stock using the classic Arborio Rice, Parmigiano Reggiano, Cracked Black Pepper and garnished with Soy Poached Mushrooms.
  • A cheeky glass (or two!) of wine to accompany dinner
