entertain friends and family during the holidays and he has some tips to consider
before planning your next gathering.
• A signature cocktail is a must. Make a base the day before to let

easy cleanup so you can spend more time with guests.
Available exclusively at Bed Bath & Beyond, Bialetti Titan cookware is

out with Chef Fabio’s holiday risotto recipe:
Mushroom & Chestnut Risotto
2 Tbsp. butter
4 slices pancetta, diced
1 yellow onion, diced
1 lb oyster or shiitake mushrooms,
salt and ppper
1⅓ cups Arborio rice
1 cup Prosecco
2 quarts chicken or vegetable stock
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
½ cup mascarpone cheese
½ cup Parmesan cheese,
grated, plus more for garnish
6 oz roasted chestnuts, shelled,
toasted and chopped
Heat butter in a large nonstick
sauté pan over medium heat. Add pancetta and cook until golden brown,
then add onion and mushrooms with a pinch of salt and sauté until
softened, about 10 minutes. Stir in the rice and cook for two minutes. Pour
in wine and simmer until absorbed almost completely. Start adding the stock
one ladle at a time, just enough to cover the rice. As the stock is absorbed
and the rice cooks, stir in more stock, each time adding just enough to cover
the rice. Stir often, making sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the
pan. Once you have added all the stock and the rice is tender, remove from
heat and stir in the nutmeg, mascarpone and Parmesan. Adjust for salt and
pepper. Top with roasted chestnuts and additional Parmesan cheese. Serve with
the remaining bottle of Prosecco wine on the side.
