Risotto alle pere e formaggio: 2. Cooking-Event des International Office mit Blick auf den Comer See

Koch Riccardo vorm Comer See im Nebel

Birnen-Käse-Risotto stand beim 2. Online-Cooking-Event des International Office am 06. Februar 2021 auf dem Menü. Internationale Studierende und Studierende aus dem Italienisch-Sprachkurs des Language Center kochten dieses für die Lombardei typische Risotto unter Anleitung des italienischen Kochs Riccardo, der live aus dem Hotel Il Perloin Bellagio am Comer See, welches ein atemberaubendes Panorama auf den Comer See bietet, zugeschaltet war. Während der Koch Riccardo die Anleitung für das Risotto gab, unterhielt der Besitzer des Il Perlo, Carlo Sancassano, die Teilnehmenden mit spannenden Infos rund um die Region. Wer möchte, kann das Birnen-Käse-Risotto zuhause nachkochen; auf Riccardos Foodblog findet Ihr weitere vielversprechende Rezepte. Übrigens: Eine weitere Zusammenarbeit mit dem Il Perlo ist fest geplant. Das International Office wird rechtzeitig darüber informieren und zum nächsten Event alle interessierten Studierenden einladen!

Pear and Cheese Risotto (4 servings)

  • 360 gr. risotto rice
  • 2.5 liters of vegetable broth (preferably homemade)
  • 1 small white onion
  • 1 pear
  • 200 gr. soft, salty cheese. (The chef uses Taleggio cheese, but any other salty, well-aged cheese will work.)
  • 1 glass of milk
  • 2 glasses of dry white wine
  • some butter and olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • a small glass of Brandy (optional)


  1. Prepare the broth. Fill a pot with cold water. Peel the carrot and onion, wash them and place them into the pot along with the celery stick and one bay leaf. Cover the pot and bring the broth to a boil. Keep simmering for at least 10 minutes, remove the vegetables.
  2. Cut the small onion into brunoise (= little cubes).
  3. Dice the cheese.
  4. Peel the pear and cut it into little cubes. Wet it with lemon juice.
  5. Heat the butter in a skillet. When it is hot, add the diced pear and sauté while adding brown sugar. Deglaze with brandy and reserve.
  6. Heat the milk in a small saucepan, bring it to the boil and then reduce heat to low to prevent overflow; remove from heat and add the cheese cut into small pieces. Stir to melt the cheese. Reserve.
  7. Grease the pot in which you are going to cook the rice with some olive oil.
  8. Heat the oil. Add the diced onion and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add the rice grains and toast for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally.
  9. Deglaze with white wine.
  10. Continue to cook the rice by adding broth a little at a time. Follow the cooking time indicated on the rice package.
  11. When the rice is cooked, turn off the heat, add the Taleggio fondue, a pinch of black pepper and salt to taste.
  12. The result should be creamy, not dry.
  13. Spread the rice on a plate.
  14. Decorate with glazed pear cubes.
