      risotto smear test - how to tell exactly when yours is perfectly cooked (from the former risotto chef at per se, no less)

    • stephanie kelch

      risotto smear test - Take a grain and put it on a smooth surface (cutting board/countertop). Press your finger into the grain and smush it down while dragging your finger across the surface. If it’s undercooked, the grain will chunk apart and you’ll be able to clearly see the white, raw center. If it’s just right, your smear will start to smooth out, but you’ll be still be able to see a little bit of the white, al dente center of the grain. If it’s overcooked, the smear will be totally smooth.
