    Well done, this is the essence and variation of risotto. I also make it with champagne and cantaloupe or honey melon and a bit (not too much) of prosciutto for the summer. Or prosecco or pinot grigio, strawberries, preserved green peppercorns and a drizzle of balsamico vinegar.

      risotto is the one time you don't actually want to wash the rice, the starches on the rice is how risotto gets its texture.

    Lovely video. Lovely host. Great way to present the basics and let viewers figure out the best way for their tastes on their own.
    Christ, foodies can be so moody half the time. I think this series is better than browned butter. Keep it up!

    The video is wrong about broth temperature. The broth should be boiling. If the broth isn't boiling, when you pour it into the pan, it stops the rice from cooking. Do this repeatedly and it destroys the surface of the rice grains. On the other hand, if do you use boiling broth, it comes out magically creamy. I used to use room-temperature broth until I tried boiling broth and now I'll never go back. (Or actually, I switched to making it in the pressure cooker since it's much more time-efficient.)

      Agree. I always did it the way I was taught... (simmering stock) and when I skipped it, it didn't turn out right. I'd be looking for a more lava-like thickness than this one, though, with no excess liquid.
