Risotto with saffron and burrata cheese

Ingredients, serves 4:
  • 300g carnaroli rice
  • 1l meat stock
  • 2 sachets of saffron
  • 125g burrata
  • 60g grated parmesan
  • 50g butter
  • 50g white wine
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Saffron strands
  • Pepper
Method

Heat a little olive oil in a large, wide frying pan and toast the rice over a medium-heat, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon until translucent. Increase the heat then add the wine and let evaporate.

Add a ladleful of boiling hot stock to the rice, stir and when absorbed add another. Repeat until all the stock has been used. Just before the rice is fully cooked (approx. 5 minutes) dissolve the saffron in a little stock and add to the rice.

Remove from the heat, stir in the butter and parmesan cheese. Cover with a cloth or kitchen paper and leave to rest for a couple of minutes.

Serve the risotto with a spoonful of burrata cheese in the centre. Decorate with a few strands of saffron and a generous sprinkling of pepper..
