Butternut squash risotto with brown butter and parmesan crisp

In this edition of our culinary basics series we’ll be looking at how to make the perfect plate of risotto. Our team of chefs will guide you through the process of preparing the vegetable stock, the backbone of flavour to the rice dish, choosing and toasting the ideal grain of rice and correctly finishing the dish with the appropriate amount of butter and grated parmesan.
Our version of this autumnal favourite is embellished with the addition of seasonal squash as well as restaurant kitchen favourites like brown butter and shards of crispy parmesan.
