Peruse this expertly curated collection of entertaining favorites from 75 of the industry’s most beloved chefs. If anyone can compile a worthy tome of chef recipes, it’s noted food writer and book author Maria Isabella. This risotto alla carbonara is the hearty, pork-studded dinner you’ve been dreaming of. 

What do you get when you marry risotto with carbonara sauce? A decadently rich, silky, and creamy rice dish that’s beyond your wildest expectations. “But what’s really unique in this version,” explains Dante, “is that a poached egg is used as the garnish. You just break the egg and cream the yolk right into the risotto!”
