My mother’s favorite risotto recipes:
Risotto con i funghi, for someone the only option is using fresh mushrooms, someone else uses dried ones, someone add tomato sauce, someone else doesn’t. Well, whatever. I like it. And for the record my mom makes it with a soffritto with onion, celery and carrot, and dried mushrooms.
Risotto con i carciofi (‘Artichoke risotto‘)
for this one as well my mom makes a soffritto with onion, celery and carrot.
Risotto con i gamberetti (‘Shrimps risotto’)
As many other Italian recipes, this has several versions, my mom makes it with fresh shrimps, brandy, parsley and garlic finely chopped, and a touch of panna (‘cream’).
Riso al latte, not a dessert, as someone might think, but rice literally cooked in milk, with some butter and parmigiano. Not a real risotto, but a big classic that reminds me my childhood
