When Chef Ramsey came on television, his signature staple was Risotto.

Why not?

It’s a dish associated with the high-end restaurants his name is attached to.

Risotto is also the epitome of Italian home cooking.

It’s the Italian grandmother’s comfort food.

It’s a dish every cook, regardless of skill, should know how to make.

It satisfies.

It’s easy to make.

It’s impressive.

Gone are the days the tarnished Risotto’s reputation of being time-consuming and finicky.

Wave farewell to the Risotto, your mom, told our required constant attention.

Watch that “Takes-30-minutes-to-make” label fade in your rearview mirror.

Start to finish; the best Risotto takes 45 minutes, including the time to bring the Instant Pot to pressure.

Thank your Instant Pot.

One of the reasons it’s said every cook should learn to cook Risotto is the technique.

It’s the basics like making a soffrito, adding the broth one scoop at a time, toasting the rice just so.

Deciding if you’ll be adding caramelized onions or bits of sausage, or maybe it’s wild mushrooms that strike your fancy.

This Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto is a game-changer.

I recommend using the best rice you have available. 

At our house that is arborio.

Arborio rice is relatively hard to overcook.

If you want to really gussie up the dish, you can order vialone nano rice and serve silky, perfected Risotto.
