Peel and devein the shrimp, reserving the shells for the broth, and set aside. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter with the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp shells, half of the onions, the celery, carrots, garlic, and parsley stems. Season with salt and pepper, and sauté until golden, about 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes, ⅓ cup of the vermouth, and lemon peel, and cook for 5 minutes. Add 4 cups water and cook for 15 minutes. Strain the broth, then return it to the pot. Add the shrimp and place the pot on the stove, off the heat.
Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a heavy deep sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the remaining onions and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until soft and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the rice, stirring until it is coated with butter. Add the remaining ⅓ cup vermouth.
Add ½ cup of the hot broth, stirring constantly to keep the rice from sticking to the bottom of the pan. Push any rice that crawls up the sides of the pan back down into the liquid. When the rice has absorbed all the broth, add another ½ cup of simmering broth. Keep adding broth and stirring. Taste the rice, it is done when it is tender with a firm center. Add the shrimp and the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and stir until it has melted into the rice.
Quick Guide to Italian Risotto Rice
Risotto is the ultimate comfort food. Once you get over the initial fears – it’s actually a lot easier to make than most people think – it’s super versatile and always delicious, no matter what stock, vegetables or proteins you have on hand.
The key is the rice. The perfect risotto starts and ends with the right kind of rice. You need to pick one that has a high amylopectin (starch) content, but also will hold up well to the constant stirring. It’s all that stirring that rubs the starch off the surface of the rice, laying the groundwork for the hallmark creamy texture of a good risotto.
You’ve definitely heard of Arborio, but did you know there are quite a few different Italian rices? While most locals would choose pasta over rice any day, the country’s love affair with the grain goes back millennia. The Ancient Romans used rice solely for medicinal purposes, while Sicily first tasted it in the 10th century when Arab rulers began cultivating the fields.
By the 14th century, Cistercian monks were growing rice in Piedmont, inspiring the Duke of Milan, Galeazzo Maria Sforza, to plant his own crops around his city. Today Piedmont and Lombardy remain Italy's main rice-growing regions.
The earliest Italian rice recipes were sweet concoctions flavoured with mutton, raisins, currants and cinnamon, and while the Fascist regime attempted to impose risotto as a national dish throughout the country, the classic risottos we know and love all come from north. In fact, in the old Milanese dialect, risott means "hotchpotch" or "jumble".
Every Italian household has its own favourite type of risotto rice, but we’ve narrowed it down to three for you try at home, along with some tips on which risottos to use them in.

I guess you could call Arborio the tuna of the Italian risotto rice world. It’s not the gold standard of risotto rice, but it’s the most widely available. It’s a medium-grain rice that can be easy to overcook, and is named after the Piedmont town of Arborio in the Po Valley.
While risotto is typically made with white wine elsewhere, Piedmont is best known for its risotto al Barolo, a robust local red wine made from the Nebbiolo grape. The wine tinges the Arborio a beautiful pink colour, making it perfect for a romantic dinner for two, while infusing the rice with a deep flavour. Sausage or borlotti beans can be added for a more robust variation, and the dish is finished off with plenty of butter and grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese.
Arborio’s intensely creamy texture is also preferred in the Venetian risi e bisi – a spring dish that is made with green peas using the stock from the fresh young pods, flavoured with pancetta.
Sometimes called the “king of rice” (or “caviar of rice”), Carnaroli is another variety of Italian superfino rice high in amylopectin. It can be even more expensive and difficult to source than Arborio, but each grain maintains its shape better, producing the creamiest risotto.
We use Carnaroli in our risotto ai funghi porcini (porcini mushroom risotto) – a classic vegetarian risotto. The recipe is included in our Fall-themed food box, along with Carnaroli rice and dried porcini mushrooms sourced from the region.
Carnaroli is grown in the Pavia, Novara and Vercelli provinces of northern Italy and is particularly suited to vegetarian risottos because it has a slightly nutty flavour that pairs well with fall and winter vegetables like mushrooms, pumpkin and radicchio trevigiano (a distinctly bitter type of Italian chicory).
It’s also a hallmark in the classic Pavia dish, risotto alla certosina, which is made with peas, mushrooms, freshwater prawns, perch and a common fauna of the rice fields – frogs!
And it’s our pick for risotto alla Milanese, a dish that is thought to have been inspired by the Spanish paella. Simmered slowly with a combination of chicken or vegetable broth, white wine and saffron, and finished with butter, parmesan and the optional addition of bone marrow, this golden rice is Milan’s most celebrated dish.

A smaller-grained Italian variety of rice usually categorized as fino or semi-fino, Vialone Nano can take on a lot of moisture and triples in size when cooked. It’s grown in the southern parts of the Verona province.
The delicately herbaceous and clean flavour of Vialone Nano makes it a favourite of the coastal Veneto region, where it’s classically paired with fish and seafood like in risotto alle vongole, which is flavoured with clams, white wine, garlic and chili flakes.
Another specialty of the Veneto region, risotto al nero di sepia, is made with cuttlefish cooked with their ink-sacs intact, leaving the risotto an inky black.
As for Italy’s other famous rices - Roma, Baldo, Ribe and Originario? They’re better in soups or sweet dishes such as rice pudding, as they don’t have the creaminess of the ones we just mentioned.
Regardless of what rice you choose, there is one top tip – never rinse. Rinsing eliminates some of the starch and results in a less creamy risotto. Buon appetito!

Risi e bisi – rice and peas
Celebrate the vibrant flavours and colours of spring with this beautiful risi e bisi recipe – a pea and pancetta risotto. Luca boosts the flavour by cooking the rice in Prosecco and homemade stock and then folds in stracchino – a wonderful Italian fresh cow's milk cheese – just before serving.
Hide story show story
Fresh peas have just come into season in Italy, as spring arrives with an outburst of flowers and birdsong. This is the time to eat rice with fresh vegetables as they do in the Veneto.
Risi e bisi, which simply means rice and peas in the Venetian dialect, is the most famous of all risotti from the region. In the days of the Venetian Republic, it was served before the Doge on 25 April, the feast of Saint Mark and Venetian national day.
Like all risotti, it’s quite simple but needs care and attention while cooking. You should add the liquid little by little and never stop stirring to ensure that the rice is cooked evenly. Use a high-sided saucepan, and a wooden spatula which can get right into the corners of the pan while stirring.
In the Veneto, risotti are served all’onda which literally means ‘on the waves’. In fact, it means with quite a lot of liquid, rather like the city of Venice itself.
My version is made with Prosecco, the best of which comes from the hills of Valdobbiadene, about 50 miles to the north-west of Venice. It makes a luxurious accompaniment to the dish, but you could use any white wine from the region.
The Food and Cuisine of Lombardy (Lombardia)
Lombardia cuisine has roots in many different cultures, resulting in extravagant dishes. Lombardia cooking traditionally uses generous amounts of butter, cream and lard, but recently has been converting recipes to olive oil. The first food to come to mind for most people is the decadent risotto alla Milanese. The classic golden tint is provided by saffron, the most expensive spice in the world. This creamy rice dish is heavily enriched with plenty of dairy butter and grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.
Risotto alla certosina braises rice, peas and tomatoes with frog legs, crayfish and perch fillets in a luscious onion and leek sauce. Another seafood variation contains freshwater eels and fish with chicken. This regional rice speciality is often prepared with meats such as veal lung or sausages and vegetables like asparagus, broccoli raab, winter squash or fresh parsley.
Lombardia recipes for more casual rice dishes are also enjoyed. Sometimes rice is flavored with pork and beans, known as risòtt rustì. Risotto alla pilota, a rice and sausage variation, is very popular. In addition to this specialty, rice is also used frequently in vegetable minestrone and soups.
Unlike most of Italy, polenta and rice are both eaten far more often than pasta. Polenta, or cornmeal cooked into a soft cereal, is a mainstay of Lombardia cuisine. It is generally served with plenty of butter, cheese and sometimes meat or vegetables. It can be served soft as gras pistà, covered with ground salt pork and a fresh garlic and parsley topping similar to pesto. Polenta e osei is piled generously onto a platter and garnished with tiny birds that have been roasted with sage leaves. When the cereal is permitted to chill and get firm, it can be sliced and layered with mushroom sauce, tomatoes and pork and baked for polenta pasticciata.
Another beloved grain in Lombardia cooking is buckwheat. This flour is used to make pizzoccheri, noodles that are served with cooked vegetables and cheese. It can also be cooked in milk to make a corn-free polenta called polenta in fiur. Sometimes the buckwheat is cooked with cornmeal and served with butter and cheese to make polenta taragna. It can also be used with cheese to make sciatt, a grappa flavored fritter.
Despite not being a staple food, some unique forms of pasta are found in Lombardia cooking. Tortelli de zucca is a pocket filled with winter squash, grated cheese, finely crushed almond paste cookies and sometimes mostardo, a mustard flavored candied fruit preserve, served in a bath of melted butter with fried sage leaves. Agnolini, a filled pasta similar to tortillini, are filled with a mixture of beef and pork.
Other famous ravioli include casônsei, filled with cheese, sausage and bread. These pockets are always served with butter and grated Grano Padano. The most well known pasta are marubini, a cheese and meat dumpling served in broth.
Lombardia dishes are heavily reliant on meat with an emphasis on poultry. Two of the regional specialties are preserved goose salame and foie gras. Goose is also used to make sausages. Tacchina ripiena is a turkey stuffed with apples, pears, chestnuts, walnuts, pork and veal flavored with herbs and brandy traditionally served for Christmas.
The plains are an ideal location to raise cattle, so beef has always been an important part of Lombardia cuisine. Bollito misto is a boiled supper consisting of a variety of meats, primarily beef and beef offal, though there may be poultry or pork sausage for variety. These meats are served with mostarda, a mustard flavored candied fruit preserve. Zuppa alla pavese is a rich broth made from the beef bones and served in a bowl with pan fried bread and poached eggs. Tripe is slowly cooked until tender in busecca, a soup flavored with salt pork, minced salame and vegetables flavored with herbs and grated grana.
Tender veal calves are used in many Lombardia recipes. Costoletta alla milanese fries breaded veal cutlets in butter and splashed with fresh lemon juice before bringing to the table. Slowly simmering veal shanks, sliced to expose the succulent marrow, in herbs and wine makes osso bucco alla milanese. These tender morsels are seasoned with gremolada, a garnish of lemon zest, garlic and fresh parsley, before serving with risotto alla milanese.
Cold roasted veal is sliced and served with a tuna, anchovy, lemon and caper sauce for vitello tonnato. Uccelli scappati is a skewered dish made from pieces of veal and pork and fresh sage leaves. Scraps of beef are flavored with cheese, formed into croquettes and fried to make mondeghili. The brains, liver, sweetbreads and lungs are fried and served as part of fritto misto, an appetizer of assorted fried food.
Pork is also used in many dishes. In addition to the salume for which most of Italy is famous, a succulent stew called cascoeûla. Cabbage, pork sausages, ribs, leg meat along with the head and skin are simmered in herbs and wine and served with polenta. In nervetti in insalata, pig feet and shanks are cooked in a broth made with onions, celery an carrots. The tender meat is served cold with oil and vinegar as a salad.
Seafood is not a large part of Lombardia cooking, but lake fish, crayfish and snails are enjoyed. Agoni are preserved with bay leaves to eat in a dish called missultitt. Alborelle, a tiny fish, are deep fried and eaten whole. Frogs are cooked with onions, tomato and garlic in white wine and butter to make rane in guazzetto.
Pannetone is a sweet, yeast raised egg bread with raisins and citron served for Christmas. Easter brings Colomba, almond topped bread dove shaped. Religious holidays are known for their delightful array of desserts, but the rest of the year is not without its special treats. Miascia, rosemary flavored bread pudding, is full of raisins, apples and pears. Polenta is used in torta sbrisulona, a crisp, buttery almond cake. Other desserts eaten in Lombardia cuisine include the crescent shaped offelle and bussolano, a lemony potato cake.

Preparation1. Take the heads from the langoustines or orayfish, but remove the eyes, then out the tails through the shell lengthwise, leaving the shell on, and keep in the fridge until ready to use. (If you like, you can keep back a few heads to garnish the risotto.) 2. To make the stock, heat the oil in a large, heavy—bottomed pan, add the heads and crush them a little with a wooden spoon, so that they start to release their juices. Cook for about 5 minutes, tossing the shells around in the pan, to get all the flavor from them. 3. Add the vegetables, bay leaf, parsley stalks and peppercorns. Sweat for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the tomato paste and the wine. Allow the alcohol to evaporate, then add IO cups water (make sure all the shells are covered). Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes. (If you are going to garnish the risotto with langoustine heads, put them into the stock for a few minutes until they change color, then take out and reserve.) Strain the stock through a fine sieve, pressing the shells to get all the flavor out. 4. To make the risotto, put the stock book on the burner, next to whore you are going to make your risotto. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat to at gentle simmer. 5. Melt the butter in a heavy—bottomed pan, and add the onion. Cook gently until the onion is softened but not colored (about 5 minutes). 6. Add the rice and stir around to coat in the butter and "toast" the grains. Make sure all the grains are warm before adding the wine. Let the wine evaporate completely until the onion and rice are dry. 7. Start to add tho stock, a ladleful or two at a time, stirring and scraping tho rice in the pan as you do so. Also add the tomato passata with the first ladleful of stock. When each addition of stock has almost evaporated, add tho next ladleful. 8. Continue cooking the risotto for about 14 minutes, adding stock continuously as above. Slow up toward the end, so that the rice doesn't became too soupy, otherwise when you add the butter at the end, it will become sloppy. The risotto is ready when the grains are soft but still al donte. 9. Take off the heat and let the risotto rest for a minute without stirring, then season the langoustines lightly and add to the risotto, with 2 tablespoons of the garlic—flavored oil, and the lemon juice. Check the seasoning and adjust if necessary. 10. For the mantecatura, with a wooden spoon, vigorously boat in the cold butter cubes, making sure you shake the pan energetically at the same time as you beat. Just before serving, if the risotto is too firm, boat in a little more hot stock to loosen it. 11. Add tho olioppod parsloy and garnish with langoustino hoads, if using.
Intorno alla Tavola
½ lb tagliatelle
4 Tbs unsalted butter
½ medium yellow onion – fine chop
1 carrot – fine chop
1 celery – fine chop
¼ lb pancetta – thinly sliced and cut into strips
2 Tbs olive oil
½ lb ground pork
½ lb ground beef
½ lb ground veal
½ cup white wine
1 bay leaf
1 tsp dry thyme
1 cup (3-4) plum tomatoes, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
a smidgen of salt, pepper, and nutmeg (a smidgen is a bit less than a pinch)
Over medium-high heat, in a 12” skillet, sauté onion, carrot and celery in butter until the vegetables are opaque, but not soft, 2-3 minutes. Add panchetta to the pan and sauté 1 minute more. Remove from heat.
In a separate sauté pan heat olive oil over medium-high heat and sauté beef, pork and veal with the bay leaf, thyme, salt, pepper and nutmeg 3-5 minutes until the meat is browned. Add the meat to the vegetables and pancetta and return the skillet to medium-high heat.
Add tomatoes and wine to the skillet, and simmer for 30 – 45 minutes.
Add cream, simmer 5 minutes.
Traditionally this thick and rich ragu would be placed in a mound on the top center of a plate of cooked tagliatelle.
2 medium lobster tails (aprox. 1 lb.)
1 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
6 Tbs. butter
½ cup chopped onion
1 ½ cups Arborio rice
½ cup brandy
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbs. chopped chives
5 cups low-sodium chicken stock
Remove the lobster from the shells. Cut into bite-sized pieces. In a medium sauté pan melt 2 Tbs. of butter and add the thyme. Sauté the lobster "meat" for 2 – 3 minutes. Do not over cook. Remove from pan and set aside. The lobster “meat” should be still slightly opaque in the center.
In a medium saucepan bring the chicken stock up to a boil, and then lower to a simmer. Keep hot over low heat. As the stock is added to the rice be sure to lower the flame under the stock.
In a large saucepan, over medium heat, melt 2 Tbs. of butter until it begins to foam. Add the onion and sauté for 2 – 3 minutes until opaque. Add the rice and stir to coat with butter and onion. Add the brandy and simmer until the liquid has almost evaporated, 2 – 3 minutes. Add a ½ cup of warm stock and stir until almost completely absorbed. Continue to add stock a ½ cup at a time stirring until almost completely absorbed before adding the next ½ cup. Stir constantly and cook until rice is tender but still al dente, firm to the bite, approximately 20 – 25 minutes. I usually reserve a ½ cup of stock. When the rice is done add the lobster meat and heat through. Remove the rice from the heat and stir in the last 2 Tbs. of butter, Parmesan cheese, and chives. You can add the reserved ½ cup of stock to thin and cream the risotto, if needed.
Garnish with chopped chives. Serve immediately.
3 Tbs unsalted butter
3 Tbs unbleached flour
½ cup white wine
1 cup whole milk
1 Lb diced Fontina cheese
15 – 20 crostini
Fresh vegetable of choice
Thinly slice a crusty Italian or French loaf of bread and lay out slices on a cookie sheet. Drizzle the bread with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of grated Parmesan cheese, dry oregano and garlic powder. Toast the crostini, little toasts, under the broiler. Cut your vegetable of choice into bite size pieces.
In a small saucepan make a roux with the butter and flour – blend together over medium high heat until the flour just starts to brown. Add the wine and stir until thickened by the roux. Add the milk and stir until thickened, and then add the diced Fontina cheese until completely melted. Dip the crostini and vegetables in the fonduta as an appetizer or light snack.
There are some regional recipes that I like to “tweak” just a bit to satisfy my individual taste buds and there are recipes I develop using ingredients that are traditional to a particular region of Italy. But, there are some traditional regional recipes that you just don’t fool with, and one of them is Risotto alla Milanese.
(serves 4 as a primo piatto) (first course)
1 cup Arborio rice
4 cups homemade chicken stock
3 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 Tbs. olive oil
¼ cup chopped yellow onion
pinch of saffron threads
¼ cup white wine
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Heat the chicken stock in a separate saucepan to be added warm to the rice. Simmer, do not boil the stock. Over medium heat combine 2 Tbs. of butter and the olive oil in a 3-quart saucepan. Saute the onion until opaque, 2 -3 minutes. Add the saffron threads. Add the rice and stir to absorb all of the butter and oil, “toasting” the rice gently. Add the white wine and stir until the liquid is absorbed. Begin adding a ½ cup of warm stock at a time, stirring constantly to avoid sticking, until all the liquid is absorbed. Add the next ½ cup of stock and continue this process until all but a ½ cup of stock remains. Add 1 Tbs. of butter and the grated Parmesan cheese to the rice. Turn the mixture gently combining the rice, butter and cheese. Stir in the remaining ½ cup of stock to a creamy consistency and serve immediately.
My little twist: Most recipes will tell you to add the butter and cheese last, when all the stock has been added. I think that adding the remaining ½ cup of stock last, adds a nice creamy consistency right before serving.
I love to add my favorite combination of ingredients to the traditional Milanese recipe – chicken and asparagus, or perhaps zucchini and yellow bell pepper that has been sautéed in olive oil. I fold in my additional ingredients right before the butter and grated Parmesan.
To celebrate the traditions of Lombardia, I add a ½ pound of cleaned and boiled crawfish and a ½ pound of oyster mushroom tops, sautéed in butter, with a teaspoon of fresh thyme: Risotto alla Certosina.
Baccala alla Vicentina con Polenta
1 lb codfish filet
¼ cup flour
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
2 Tbs. olive oil
4 anchovy filets – chopped
½ cup sliced yellow onion
¼ tsp cinnamon
½ cup dry white wine
¾ cup whole milk
3 Tbs. chopped Italian parsley
Thinly slice the codfish filets across the grain. Dredge the codfish in flour. Over medium high heat combine the butter and oil in a 12” sauté pan. Add the chopped anchovy filets and break up the pieces with a wooden spoon. Add the onion and sauté until translucent, 3 – 5 minutes. Add the codfish filets and sauté no more than 2 minutes per side. Add the cinnamon. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, scraping all the bits off the bottom of the pan, and reduce by half. Add the whole milk and parsley, lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes until the sauce thickens. Do not let the milk come to a boil.
Prepare the polenta by bringing 2 cups of water and 1 Tbs. of butter to a boil. Add ½ cup of fine polenta (corn meal) a little at a time to boiling water and stir to avoid lumps. When all the polenta has been added and has thickened, add ¼ cup of grated Parmesan cheese and a ¼ cup of grated Asiago cheese. Serve the baccala over the cheese polenta.
Rice-Based Dishes to Try when in Veneto
Here we are with my region! When in Veneto I surely recommend you to try risotto al radicchio, if you’re not afraid to taste something with a bitterish flavour. Radicchio di Treviso is a very famous IGP product.
Another great classic of the Venetian cuisine is the so-called risi e bisi, which in our dialect means “rice and peas”. Given that it belongs to “cucina povera”, I must be honest, it’s not that easy to find it in the restaurants, but if you manage to get invited to a dinner by a local, it’s possible you’ll get the chance to taste it.
Another recommendation I can give you is to have a look at this post about risi e bisi written by the lovely Tina of Tina’s Table and try the recipe yourself.
After having encountered many difficulties when trying to find this dish in the Venetian restaurants, Tina researched the topic, consulted several Italian receipe books and finally tried to make it by herself!
Tina is an American with Italian ancestry living in Bologna and a personal chef with a degree earned at The French Culinary Institute in NYC. If you’re looking for a food blog focused on Italian cuisine, I truly recommend to follow her as, other than being passionate about the topic, it’s evident she throughly researches the matter. Follow her on her blog Tina’s Table and on her instagram!
The stock is your first base of flavor. Heat it up in a saucepan, as a warm stock will cook into the risotto more quickly and evenly. While that&aposs heating up, sauté onions or shallots in a heavy bottomed pan. After those aromatics have softened, add the rice and "toast" it in the pan. You&aposll know it&aposs ready when the rice turns translucent at the edges. If the recipe calls for any wine, add it now to continue building the flavor. The slight acidity of a Sauvignon Blanc blends wonderfully in a risotto.

Warm the stock in a medium saucepan over low heat. Put the saffron in a small bowl, and ladle 1/2 cup hot stock over it.
Heat a shallow Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the onion and shallots, and cook, stirring, until tender and almost golden, about 8 minutes. Add the rice, and toss to coat in the oil. Cook until the edges of the rice are translucent, about 2 minutes.
Pour in the wine. Cook and stir until absorbed. Ladle in enough stock just to cover the rice. Adjust the heat so the risotto is simmering, and cook, stirring constantly, until all the liquid has been absorbed. Continue to add hot stock in small batches (just enough to moisten the rice completely) and cook until each successive batch has been absorbed, stirring constantly, until the rice mixture is creamy but still al dente, about 18 minutes total. Add the saffron and soaking liquid about 10 minutes after you start simmering the rice. Season with salt.
Stir in the marrow, if using. Off heat, beat in the butter in teaspoon-size pieces, a few at a time until incorporated, add the grated cheese and mix until creamy, and serve immediately in shallow bowls.
