Laura Hartman donned an apron to take on the tasty task of preparing butternut squash risotto complete with a fresh parsley gremolata. Chef Tom offered lots of helpful hints along the way, from how to properly hold a knife to when to add more chicken stock to the risotto. The result was nothing short of delicious.
