Here’s a basic recipe for getting perfect rice every time – you’ll be amazed at the light and fluffy results.
Without sounding too soppy, a well-made risotto is like a big cuddle from your mum: it just makes you feel good. Life is far too short not to know how to nail it properly, so I really want you to use these versions of risotto to help you get your head around the principles. Master the mother recipe, then create your own take on it. Iâ€™ve given you a few of my favourite flavours to get you started.
Wild rice salad
Prepacked rice salad, like potato salad and coleslaw, is really popular but largely miserable and bland. Have a go at this recipe and you won't go back to buying tubs from the supermarket.
