Champagne & Asparagus Risotto

Champagne & Asparagus Risotto

Originating in Italy, risotto is one of those recipes that people commonly tag as “complicated” and “time consuming”. But when you have the right tools, this recipe becomes a simple recipe you can make in 35 minutes! Start with the 10-inch premium stainless steel sauté pan by American Kitchen, some of the best stainless steel cookware I’ve ever used. This high quality pan conducts heat evenly throughout, making it ideal to use for risotto.

As a cookbook author and food blogger, I get asked all the time, “What are your kitchen must-haves?” My answer is always the same: A few great knives and a few great pans. These items are essential because they make cooking so much easier. You can’t chop veggies, cut bread, or carve meat without good knives. Same goes for pans. You can’t cook an omelet, brown a chicken breast, or even make a crispy, gooey grilled cheese without good cookware. In fact, a few good pans can actually take your cooking to a whole new level!
