  1. 1.
    In a saucepan, heat the chicken or vegetable broth over medium heat until hot but not boiling. Keep it warm.
  2. 2.
    In a large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent.
  3. 3.
    Add the Arborio rice to the skillet and stir well to coat each grain with the oil. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the rice becomes slightly translucent.
  4. 4.
    Pour in the white wine and stir until it is absorbed by the rice.
  5. 5.
    Begin adding the warm broth to the skillet, one ladleful at a time, stirring constantly. Allow each ladleful of broth to be absorbed before adding the next.
  6. 6.
    Continue adding the broth and stirring until the rice is al dente, tender yet firm to the bite. This process will take approximately 20 minutes.
  7. 7.
    Stir in the heavy cream, grated Parmesan cheese, and butter until well combined and creamy.
  8. 8.
    Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. 9.
    Remove the skillet from heat and let it rest for a few minutes.
  10. 10.
    Serve the risotto in individual plates, topping each portion with thinly sliced fresh truffles.

Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Truffles — Use fresh truffles for the best flavor. If fresh truffles are not available, you can use truffle oil or truffle paste as a substitute, but the flavor will be less intense.

Tips & Tricks

  • To achieve the perfect creamy texture, stir the risotto constantly while adding the broth.
  • Use a good quality Arborio rice for the best results.
  • For an extra touch of luxury, drizzle a few drops of truffle oil over the finished risotto before serving.
  • Serve the risotto immediately to enjoy it at its best, as it tends to lose its creamy texture upon standing.
  • Experiment with different types of truffles for a unique flavor experience.
