The Italians knocked it out of the park with this amazing invention because wow babes; Rice, wine and Parmesan in one dish? We are sold. This has to be the fanciest dish ever and it’s so easy to make. Always use good quality wine for this dish because if you’re gonna make risotto, please do it properly.

2 Small Shallots, finely chopped
45g Butter
1 tsp Crushed Garlic
300g Risotto Rice
150g Pepperdews, chopped

1L Vegetable Stock, warmed up
80ml White Wine
