I have to admit, I like all the Gordon Ramsey cooking shows. The ones where Gordon tears into people about how they can’t cook. It’s always the risotto that everyone claims is so simple, but everyone messes up. I have never even eaten risotto at a restaurant, so cooking it was a little tricky. But I watched a few YouTube videos to get the technique down and then gave it a try. Honestly, it’s a simple thing to make, but I can see how making it with exact timing could be tricky. I’ve cooked it twice since the first time and I’ve determined that it’s best to cook it with patience. Much like cooking rice it takes the time it takes. Only with risotto you have a much more hands on feel for how it’s cooking and how tender it has become. The longer it takes, the more flavor you are cooking into the risotto.
