• Add 1 cup white wine and allow 2–3 minutes for alcohol to evaporate.
• Add 2 cup chicken stock and stir moderately.

• After adding remaining chicken stock, continue cooking until the risotto is creamy, yet al dente.
• Add peas.
• Finish with butter and Parmesan.

Method for Grand Marnier Reduction
