Risotto Alla Milanese is the classic Italian risotto with Parmesan Cheese and Saffron. This is a creamy rice dish that gets its vivid color and flavor from the saffron. This risotto recipe is absolutely fantastic!
Saffron is the stigma of the crocus flower, which originally came from Asia Minor. Saffron is called “zafran” in Spanish. Pure saffron is made up of tiny, bright-red threads. The redder the saffron, the higher the quality. The tips of the threads should be a slightly lighter orange-red color. This will show that it is not cheap saffron that has been tinted red to look expensive.
