Risotto alla Milanese

Seasoned with saffron, risotto alla Milanese is the classic accompaniment to Osso Buco (see related recipe at left). A small amount of this aromatic spice will add inimitable flavor and a hint of yellow color to the dish. Saffron threads are preferable to powder, which loses its flavor more quickly and can be adulterated with other ingredients.

The Classic
January 7, 2014
This is the classic, creamy, flavorful risotto that goes with almost any meal, and can be served with a salad side as an entree. It does require time and patience as fairly constant stirring is the secret to success. The saffron is key to its comfort-food flavor and inviting color. And, even though serving it fresh is recommended, it's delicious reheated later or the next day, as well. Add crab or chicken for additional interest and nutrition. One more tip: use arborio.
Pros: Yield, Appearance, Impressive, Will Make Again, polular with guests

Served this last night w/ the Osso Bucco and everyone loved it. It's not that interesting in my opinion as it is just Risotto but it's a nice simple risotto to accompany an interesting main course. The Saffron is a nice easy touch that makes it seem fancier than it is.
