i think it's just white rice colored with spices like saffron and it usually has a lot of oil and salt in it, making it tasty

Hmm, I always thought I needed that special "risotto" rice that most stores sell. I'll try it now.

i mean, it won't be 100% authentic but definitely a passable substitute. it also depends on how you flavor it. good luck, sometimes risotto is a bit difficult!

sorry to be the food snob again but you definitely can not make risotto out of just any rice, lol. i mean you can but it's just bootlegging.

muzzled, you need to look for a stuffy, short grain rice called arborio (hat tip to myosis). it's fairly common and you shouldn't go through too much trouble to find it. what's special about it, that makes it ideal for risotto cooking, is its starchiness ability to soak up liquids.

making a risotto is really simple - it's just grating and time consuming. you need to make a nice vegetable stock, then cook the risotto pouring in one ladel of stock at a time, and constantly stirring and moving things around. this should go on for about 20~ minutes, and then you toss in a big ass chunk of butter and stir-melt it in.

grate parmiggiano on top, *kisses fingers*

risottos are killer. i usually sautee onions first, then add rice to that, then incremental stock

i always finish italian recipes with green kraft fridge parmesan powder though because i am poor

I feel like you've lost the right to claim economic hardship when parmesan of just about any form regularly finds its way onto your plate.

If it's incidentally dusted the discarded McChicken you just lifted from a city bin, okay.

Thanks! I'm going shopping tomorrow and will pick up some arborio.

yeah and make sure you use the good butter and cheese you churned yourself from your grassfed cows out in your pasture, and the salt you harvested from the sea....but if you don't have the time, i guess store bought would be fine.

i also use arborio rice for risotto. i also have polenta, orzo, jasmine, and basmati rice on hand depending on what dish needs a base.

stirring is not good for the risotto though (or any rice for that matter). if you're worried about it sticking to the bottom of your pan (which isn't an issue if you pay attention to stock levels), you only need to use a wooden spoon to barely push around the grains at the bottom but there should be no stirring.

I did it with regular rice today and will try it with arborio later this week. It tasted great, used mushrooms, a chicken stock, white wine and parm.

I wouldn't even put Italian in a top ten of best nationality-specific cuisines, but it is tasty.

Italian is the most popular "ethnic" cuisine in the US. It's ubiquitous, and therefore, more boring than a lot of other things to me. My mom also made Italian a lot when I was growing up, so the constant exposure over time has made it less special than it is to a lot of people I guess.

As far as southern Europe goes, I would put Greek way ahead of Italian

I really have loved Peruvian and Ecuadorian food but I don't think I have eaten it enough to make a hard judgement call

there's a huge distinction to be made between american-italian food and actual real italian cuisine, though.
