   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      md            Onion
    2      cup           Arborio rice (15 ounces)
    4      ounce         Fontina cheese
    5      ounce         Gorganzola cheese
    6      cup           Chicken stock (OR 3 cups
    1      teaspoon      Ground black pepper
                         canned chicken broth and
                         butter
    3      cup           Water)
                         grated Parmesan cheese
                         grated pecorino cheese
 
 Peel and mince the onion.  Cut the fontina and Gorganzola cheeses into 1/4-inch
dice (1 cup each).  Bring the chicken stock (or chicken broth and water) to a
boil; cover and keep warm.  Heat 4 tablespoons butter in a large soup kettle. 
Add the onions and saute until softened, about 4 minutes.  Stir in rice and saute
until translucent and coated with butter, 1 to 2 minutes.  Add 1/2 cup hot stock
and, stirring continuously, simmer until liquid is completely absorbed, about 1
minute. Repeat with remaining stock, stirring continuously, adding 1/2 cup at a
time. Add more stock only after previous addition has been absorbed. Continue to
cook, stirring and adding hot stock, until rice is creamy and just tender, 20 to
25 minutes.
 Remove from heat and stir in remaining butter, cheeses, and pepper. Serve
immediately. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
 BASIC RISOTTO:	Use the same recipe except increase the butter to 1/4 pound,
increase the Parmesan cheese to 6 tablespoons and omit the other three cheeses
