Ingredients

  • In a large pot bring 5 cups of water to a simmer.
  • In a saute pans heat the butter over medium-high heat and saute the shallots for 2-3 minutes, careful not to let them brown.

  • Pour in the white wine and bring to a strong boil.
  • Stir often and let this cook down.
  • When it is almost dry, add a 1/4 cup of the simmering water and grind about a teaspoon of salt over the rice.
  • Stir constantly until the water has almost boiled away.

  • Taste for salt and add some if needed.
  • Add about 1 tablespoon of water and add the Parmigiano cheese.
  • Cook for 1-2 minutes, constantly stirring.
  • Turn off the heat and stir in the truffle oil.
  • Serve in shallow bowls, add shaved Parmigiano cheese, and very thinly shave the truffle just before serving.
