A beautiful almost gourmet dish, this Parmesan and truffle risotto is easy to make and offers amazing flavours.


  • 1L chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 285g Arborio or risotto rice
  • 120ml white wine
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons truffle oil
  • 25g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon milk, or as needed
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, or to taste
  • 1 small fresh truffle (if you’re feeling flash), grated


  1. Heat chicken stock in a large pot over medium-low heat until warm.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon butter and olive oil in a large, heavy-based pot; cook and stir onion in the melted butter-oil mixture until softened, about 2 minutes. Add rice to onion mixture and stir to coat; cook and stir rice mixture until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Pour wine into rice mixture; cook and stir until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Add one ladle of hot chicken stock to rice mixture, stirring constantly, until liquid is absorbed. Continue adding 1 ladle of stock at a time until rice is tender but firm to the bite, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Mix 2 tablespoons butter, truffle oil, Parmesan cheese and milk into risotto until fully incorporated; season with salt, pepper and parsley.
  5. Using a microplane or similar, grate a little truffle over each serving.
