Italy – Risotto

Risotto is an Italian classis dish which is basically rice cooked in broth until it reaches a creamy state. Risotto with all its simple and less ingredients looks like a piece of cake but in reality it is one of the most difficult dishes to get right.

I highly recommend it to everyone who visits Italy, try it there where it was created because that original taste cannot be replicated anywhere else.
