Creamy and salty, snowy white and overflowing with flavor, fresh risotto with Burrata cheese and the particular pairing of anchovies makes for a contemporary Italian dish unlike so many others.

A roller-coaster for your taste buds, there's every reason to believe this slightly-sophisticated Risotto dish will become a new favorite for those special occasions where you need an Italian dish that feels and tastes like a million bucks, but we'll keep your secret: it's actually a cinch to pull together!

Preparation

for 4 servings

Step

1

Of 3

Blend, place in refrigerator and allow to rest during the other preparations.

Step

2

Of 3

Prepare the Risotto

Peel and finely mince onion.  Heat additional olive oil in a large saucepan pan, add onion and allow to sauté until slightly browned. 

Add dry rice kernels, and allow to toast for a few minutes, stirring to cover all the grains with the oil and onion mixture. 

Once the grains are toasted, add a ladleful of hot water (enough to cover the grains).  Stir until the rice has absorbed the water.  Repeat this step for 10 minutes, and repeat the process until the rice is nearly done. 

Leave the rice somewhat dry, as your last cooking step will be to add the garlic and parsley mixture to keep the risotto moist.
