How to Make Risotto

Follow these steps to stir up perfect risotto.

The Base

Risotto begins, like so many dishes, with what Italians call a soffrito -- a base of sauteed onions, sometimes including celery and garlic. For risotto, chop the vegetables finely into rice-sized pieces, so you don't end up with large chunks of onion and celery in your finished dish.
