Keeping risotto warm
Asked on 20 May 2016 by pete spencer
Hi I'm planning on cooking my wife and I Delia's Classic Risotto Milanese, and also the roast tomato soup. On the risotto recipe it says to let stand for 5 minutes before serving - i
Risotto rice goes on absorbing liquid so if you need to leave it longer I would cook it for less time earlier. If you cook it for 25 minutes so that it is still quite wet and has some bite, then cover it with a cloth. Then when you have finished the soup, warm it up briefly if it needs it, then stir in the butter a cheese and serve.
I hope you both have a very enjoyable meal.
