Winter Squash Risotto. With Kathryn Joel

Get Cooking

A one-pot meal, prepped and cooked in well under an hour, risotto is a delicious and deceptively simple technique to add to your repertoire of kitchen skills. During your class we’ll be teaching you the essential steps toward creating any risotto as we prepare one of our favourites, featuring winter squash. And if you want to come back to make Arancini at 8 you can make a double portion and have your risotto for dinner, then come back to make some Arancini that you can freeze and fry up another day!

Ingredients for Winter Squash Risotto*: risotto rice (such as carnaroli, Arborio or vialone nano), vegetable or chicken stock, olive oil, shallots, pancetta, winter squash (we prefer kabocha, buttercup, hubbard or butternut varieties), parmesan cheese, unsalted butter, fresh sage, truffle oil (we prefer white truffle oil), parmesan foam to finish (optional).

Ingredients for Parmesan Foam*: whipping cream, vegetable or chicken stock, thyme sprigs, prosciutto (or prosciutto end), garlic, parmesan.
