Presented in English
Italy produces more rice than any other country in Europe — in fact, rice is more popular than pasta in some of Italy’s northern regions. Perhaps the most traditional preparation of Italian rice is the classic dish called Risotto alla Milanese. Its recipe calls for the rice to be slowly cooked while adding small amounts of stock to the rice as it’s cooking. Then, when it’s nearly finished, a small quantity of saffron is added to give the risotto its typical golden color. Before serving, there’s one more step that’s required —mantecatura (creaming).
Chef Davide will guide you step-by-step in the preparation and will share with you many tips and insider secrets resulting in great Risotto alla Milanese prepared in your own kitchen.
The restaurant and wine bar La Dogana del Buongusto
La Dogana del Buongusto is located in central Milan, between Navigli (the canal district) and the Duomo. A former “carbonera” (a coal depot for the river barges), today La Dogana del Buongusto is a quiet and charming restaurant that combines Milanese and local traditional food with contemporary cuisine. They also carry a wide selection of wines with more than 400 labels to choose from.
La Dogana’s owner, Niccolò, will welcome us and introduce Chef Davide, who has worked for many years with Gualtiero Marchesi, arguably the best Italian chef of all time.
