Risotto is a wonderful universal dish. They say it originated in Milan in 1574 thanks to the love of an artist who created the stained-glass windows of the Duomo. This could be true seeing as it is a work of art. Italians say it should be mantecato (creamy), legato (the grains of rice separate but joined by the cream) and all’onda (smoothly spread over the plate). There is chicken, garden produce, lightly fried vegetables, butter and almonds in its stock. When the rice absorbs the flavour of the wild mushrooms, and by adding cheese and saffron, it turns a golden brown and smells like the countryside to the east of Piamonte and to the west of Lombardía passing through la mamma’s casserole.
