For some reason I’m just horrible at cooking rice. Either it keeps on boiling over or it burns to a crisp. Whenever I cook anything asian making the rice is my boyfriends job! So naturally making risotto sounded horrific to me. But making risotto is like making rice for dummies! It’s a bit time consuming because you constantly have to watch it, but in the end you just keep on adding stuff until you like it!
