Risotto alla Burro Tartufo di Alba

Risotto with white truffles is a specialty of Piedmont, in northern western Italy. Arborio rice from the Po River Valley is the key to this food of the gods, although carnaroli will work as well. When it is lavished with the noble white truffle of Alba, the intoxicating aroma is truly decadent. This is a dish to spoil your guests with. Careful though, they may never leave. And, if you can afford it… This would be fantastic garnished with just a few shavings of white truffle. (sigh) Someday..... Perfectly paired with pan seared Duck Breast, a Frisee salad with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette and a bottle of Caramel Road Pinot Noir from Monterey, CA
