Cooking Idol/Inspiration:Mario Batali
I don't think I ever cooked satisfactory rice. EVER! I tried and tried and tried and failed and failed and failed. Sticky,dry, tough, watery. Just couldn't get it right and I'm a good cook. Risotto? Forgetaboutit. Then my wife got me the Breville Risotto plus. The rice comes out perfect every single time. Perfect! Restaurant quality. The risotto? Better than a restaurant. Okay, maybe that's an exaggeration but it is the equal to anything I've found anywhere. That machine is a miracle!!!
