Cheese Wheel Risotto

This winter, you can try five-cheese risotto served hot out of a pecorino wheel.

If you're a diehard cheese fan, you've probably devoured your fair share of cheese wheel pasta. But now, it's time to get acquainted with its cousin — cheesy risotto, served straight out of a big ol' wheel of pecorino.

A version of this decadent dish has just hit the menu at Port Melbourne eatery Nonna's Cucina and it's available to warm up your winter nights from now until August 31. Just imagine a classic creamy risotto, infused with five Italian cheeses – fior di latte, pecorino romano, taleggio, pecorino sardo and gorgonzola, in case you're wondering – all tossed together in a cheese wheel and served right to your table. If that's got you drooling, you best start plotting your next visit to Nonna's Cucina, stat.

To wash it down, there's a wine list packed full of Italian drops, or you can BYO something from home.

Clocking in at $29 per person, the cheese wheel risotto is available Tuesdays to Sundays from 5.30pm until late. You'll need a minimum of two diners to take part, so lock in a mate and book yourselves a table before it all wraps up in five weeks.
