Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 large shallots, chopped
  • 3 cups fresh sweet corn
  • 1 1/2 cups arborio rice
  • 1 cup sauvignon blanc wine
  • 5 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 4 oz Romano cheese (parmesan), grated
  • 4 tablespoons minced parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a large french oven, or heavy bottomed pot, over medium-high heat melt 6 tablespoons butter. Add olive oil and garlic, stirring until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add shallots and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes.

Add corn and arborio rice, stirring constantly, until the edges of the rice are translucent, about 6 minutes. Add wine, stirring constantly, until almost completely absorbed, 2-3 minutes.

Add 1 cup chicken stock, stirring constantly, until the stock has been absorbed. Continue adding stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring the risotto until the stock is absorbed before adding more. The risotto is done when the rice is tender.

Stir in the romano cheese, parsley and the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately!
