2 cups chicken stock, simmering

Heat butter and olive oil.

Add the onions and bay leaf and saute until onions are transluscent.

Add rice and stir to coat it completely with fat. Toast slightly but don't brown.

Pour in simmering stock and a pinch of salt.

Cover the pot tightly and simmer over a low heat until liquid is absorbed, approximately 18-20 minutes.
