  • 300 gr. of Rice (pleae do not use basmati rice!) Arborio rice is perfect.

  • 10 Cl. of dry white wine.

  • Chop very finely the onion and cook it on a very low fire with 20 gr. of butter.
  • After 3-4 minutes add the rice and toast it for a minute stirring with a wooden spoon.

When you cannot hold anymore the rice between your finger tips it means the rice is toasted right.

  • Add the white wine and let it evaporates.
  • Cook adding the stock one ladle at the time, stir continuously and when the rice is half way cooked add the saffron (half of a tablespoon).
  • When the rice is done take out from the fire and whisk with some butter first and with the parmesan cheese.
