The origins of the Milanese Risotto are controversial. What we do know for certain is that rice arrived in our country in the thirteenth century with the Moors. But it was a long journey before we arrive at Milanese Risotto. Nothing is written about this delicious risotto until the eighteenth century. However, legend has it that it was born in the Renaissance at the wedding of a master glassmaker particularly attached to the colour of yellow. The wedding was on September 8, 1574, and friends of the groom, playing a trick based on this passion for yellow, made him yellow rice for his wedding banquet. From the joke was born a real and genuine culinary landmark, both of Lombard gastronomy and beyond.
