Worth staying home for

We know most of us are staying in during the Covid-19 outbreak, but, there is absolutely no excuse for not having a gourmet meal. Here is a top-secret recipe we have sourced from chef Piaceri Da Gustare of the Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort and Spa. Enjoy!

For the Risotto

  • 100g carnaroli rice
  • 1/2 white onion, cut brunoise
  • 300 ml Vegetable stock
  • 25g taleggio
  • 25g gorgonzola dolce
  • 25g smoked mozzarella
  • 25g parmesan
  • 50g butter
  •  ½ Pear sliced
  • 20 ml Aged balsamic
  • 25g Walnut
  • Extra virgin olive oil


  1. Heat vegetable stock in a pot until boiling point.
  2. On a small pot, heat the oil with the onion brunoise at low flame until cooked.
  3. When the onion is cooked, toast the carnaroli rice.
  4. Pour vegetable stock in the risotto pot, one ladle at the time. Every time the rice absorb the stock, pour one more ladle.
  5. Cook the risotto at medium – high flame for about 15 min, or until al dente or your preference.
  6. Put the risotto to low flame, add the cheeses and butter and let the rice rest for 1 minute before serving.

  8. Serve the risotto in a deep plate with the caramelized pear and walnut on top.
