Expert Tips

This recipe greatly speeds preparation of risotto. For the classic Italian dish, short-grained (nearly round) Arborio rice cooks in a skillet and the cook adds liquid a little bit at a time, stirring constantly until the liquid is absorbed, then adding more liquid. The method results in a creamy-textured rice dish.
