  • About

The sweetness of the crabmeat is enhanced by the sweetness of the corn. For an Oriental accent, add grated ginger and garlic. No cheese, please.

Please keep in mind that risotto cannot be rushed. The cooking time is 20 to 25 minutes. The broth must be absorbed gradually and the right texture attained. Only Italian short-grain arborio rice will work for a genuine risotto. It holds a firm center while the outside produces the creamy sauce consistency of the broth.
