Take the easy route to cooking a quick supper with Italy’s favourite rice dish. Italia! looks at some of the ready-to-make risotto kits currently on the market

Risotto is a quintessentially Italian dish originating in the north of the country. It remains especially popular in these northern regions – such as Piedmont and the Veneto – where rice paddy fields are a common sight. Generally speaking, risotto is served as a primo (first course) dish and is made with short-grain rice such as arborio or carnaroli. Although the dish seems simple, it demands a pretty high level of care and attention while cooking, as the stock should be added gradually and the rice stirred regularly to absorb the water and its flavours properly.

Risotto kits come complete with all the ingredients you’ll need (apart from the cooking stock). Just pop in the pan and, hey presto! An instant risotto. Well, almost – you will still need give them a stir for best results, but with all your ingredients in one handy pack, these kits (supermarket and deli options) are a one-stop solution to easy midweek suppers.

About Italia!

Our new issue will take you from the chilly alpine splendour of Courmayeur in Valle d’Aosta right down to Sicily – visit the majestic Valley of the Temples near Agrigento or stay nearby at the Verdura Resort. A recent fl ying visit to Florence inspired our ‘48 Hours’ feature this month; from new discoveries at the Duomo to a new way of getting around (by tuk-tuk), this venerable city is always a pleasure to visit. And, turning to another alternative mode of transport, we take a tour around Lake Garda by e-bike.
