Directions

In a large pan heat the olive oil then added the rice until it became translucent around the edges but not toasty. Add the chicken stock, which had been simmering on a separate burner, bit by bit over the course of the next twenty five minutes whilst stirring in a counter clockwise motion. The idea is to make sure the liquid is absorbed by the rice before adding your next splash. As a final step after adding in the last of the chicken stock, stir in the pesto and topped it off with freshly grated Parmesan.

A good risotto should not be sticky nor should it be too liquidy. Finally, I decorate the top of the plate with two licorice basil leaves.
