I am seriously raising the bar with this creamy, dreamy risotto. For this recipe, this is a very traditional risotto that uses a short-grain rice, aborio rice which the most commonly available risotto rice here in the states.

It is tempting to pour all of the chicken stock in at one time but you will end up with a lump of, well, I don’t know how to put it but it won’t be good.
