Creamy Risotto with Cheeses
For a pungent, earthy flavor that brings out the full flavor of the cheeses, add a few drops of white truffle oil to the risotto a few seconds before plating.

Recipe Ingredients:
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 cup mild white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, smashed into a paste
1 1/2 cups arborio rice (if you want a creamier style, try cracked arborio

White truffle oil, to taste (optional)

3 – Stir in the fontina cheese, then the Parmesan. If the mixture is dry, add a little more stock.
