Mushroom Risotto

The Domestic Man

For Thanksgiving this year, we decided to make a traditional side dish instead of trying to invent something new that is in line with our dietary restrictions. What we settled on is not a traditional dish for Thanksgiving by any means, but itโ€™s a traditional one nonetheless!

Risotto is a dish first served in Italy in the 16th century, when rice was first introduced from neighboring Mediterranean cuisines, and gained popularity in Milan. Risotto was served in the United States in the 1800s, but didnโ€™t get popular until after WWII (along with pizza). The 1980s are also a time when this dish became really popular and faddish in the US.
