My husband said this was EXCELLENT! He is an accomplished cook as well, I was amazed. This is very, very good. The amount of Stock (5) cups, is if you prefer a wet, loose risotto like the picture. Others said the broth is too much, this is true if you prefer a thick, "keep it's shape" risotto. We prefer the consistency of thickness so risotto will stand alone in a mound. I used only 3 cups of the broth to achieve this. I used shallots to equal about 1/2 of a yellow onion. I added about a 1/4 teaspoon of fresh chopped Rosemary at the stage of the last broth addition. I added a 1/3 cup grated Lionza, a local hard cheese much like parmesan, more pungent, at the cheese stage. Salt and pepper to taste. Awesome! Welcome to the restaurant in my house!!
