Champagne Risotto

Risotto cooked in champagne is an easy and impressive dish. Serves four.

by Mara Zepeda (Philadelphia Weekly, Dec. 5-11, 2007, pg. 55)


2 1/2 cups arborio rice
3 shallots, minced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups chicken stock
2 cups champagne
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chopped parsley
salt and pepper
1/4 cup Parmigiano Reggiano


In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute shallots in olive oil until translucent.

Add garlic and rice and saute for one minute.

Add 1 cup of champagne and simmer until absorbed. Add stock in 1-cup increments, stirring continuously until almost done (about 20 minutes).

Add remaining cup of champagne and cook until just tender.

Remove from heat and stir in parsley, butter, salt and pepper.

Serve topped with cheese.
