Batch Cook – Storage Information

  • Fridge: While risotto really is at its best when it’s fresh, if you do happen to have leftover, it will be fine in the fridge…. I wouldn’t recommend keeping for longer than 3 days.
  • Reheat: Reheat in the microwave or on the hob.
  • Freezer: Not suitable for freezing.
