posted by Home In Italy on February 21st, 2012

It is the typical dish par excellence of Milan. This very simple dish is particularly fascinating for its golden color, conferred by saffron, the main ingredient of the recipe. Not everyone knows, though, that the traditional recipe of the Risotto alla Milanese also contains marrow from an ox bone, a fundamental ingredient for enriching the flavor.

Milan is a city to discover not just for fashion, events and art but also to experience a exquisite cuisine.

Ingredients for 4 people:
- 400 g of rice
- 1 liter of beef stock
- 1/2 cup of dry white wine
- 40 g of butter
- 40 g of beef bone marrow
- 60 g Grana Padano cheese (matured 24 months)
- 30 g of onions
- 0.5 g of saffron

The secret for the best risotto? Whisk it energetically and eat it straight after!
