Sweet Corn Risotto*

corn, risotto, butter, white wine, appetizer, entree, parsley, chicken stock

Last week I walked into the gym and climbed onto my dreaded elliptical. I wasn’t really paying attention, but next to me were two guys in their early 30’s on the treadmills. I was punching in all of my answers to the questions… “How much do you weigh?” ummm 20 pounds. “How long do you want to work out?” umm…is 3 minutes long enough? I was just about to put in my headphones and start working out when I started to actually listen to the guys conversation next to me…

Before I begin, let me set the scene for you… On the tv in front of us, the news was talking about Jessica Simpson and showing pictures of her still pregnant. Guy #1 was about 50 pounds over weight and was running his ass off on a high incline. Guy #2 was about 200 pounds over weight and was walking on no incline. I am not one to judge -I am no skinny girl either- these are just the facts.

Guy #2: Look at her!

Guy #1: Who?

Guy #2: Jessica Simpson. Damn girl looks like a whale. Did she eat all of Texas or just half of it?

Guy #1: Dude, she’s like pregnant or something.

Guy #2: Ya, whatever. She needs to get herself to the gym. I wouldn’t touch that if you paid me.

Guy #1:  :::keeps running with no comment:::

Guy #2: Seriously man, she is so fat it disgusts me.

…..At this point I couldn’t take it anymore. I was directly next to Guy #2. I slowed down my pace and turned to him…

Me: Really? She’s like what, 50 pounds over weight and 9 months pregnant? And you are what? …how many months in your pregnancy are you?

He (Guy #2) immediately got off the treadmill and left the gym without saying a word to me. Guy #1 turned to me and said “Ya, he’s kind of an ass”.


That night I went home and took out my aggression on this Sweet Corn Risotto. While constantly stirring, and stirring, and more stirring…I was able to cool down enough to tell Jorge what happened without my face getting all red again.

I have been back to the gym 3 times since that day. I have seen him twice and he has left immediately after I got there. And while most people will tell me what I said is incredibly rude, I don’t feel bad. I am sick of men (and other women for that matter) thinking it’s ok to tear down a woman without taking an honest look at themselves. We are all human and not one of us is perfect (except Ryan Gosling, amiright??).



Sweet Corn Risotto

Yield: 6 - 8 Servings

Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 large shallots, chopped
  • 3 cups fresh sweet corn
  • 1 1/2 cups arborio rice
  • 1 cup sauvignon blanc wine
  • 5 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 4 oz Romano cheese (parmesan), grated
  • 4 tablespoons minced parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


In a large french oven, or heavy bottomed pot, over medium-high heat melt 6 tablespoons butter. Add olive oil and garlic, stirring until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add shallots and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes.

Add corn and arborio rice, stirring constantly, until the edges of the rice are translucent, about 6 minutes. Add wine, stirring constantly, until almost completely absorbed, 2-3 minutes.

Add 1 cup chicken stock, stirring constantly, until the stock has been absorbed. Continue adding stock, 1 cup at a time, stirring the risotto until the stock is absorbed before adding more. The risotto is done when the rice is tender.

Stir in the romano cheese, parsley and the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately!


This Sweet Corn Risotto was absolutely heavenly. With the creamy risotto and sweet bursts of corn, it is the epitome of Summer to me.

    I’m giving you a virtual round of applause for what you said. Seriously, “ass” doesn’t begin to describe Guy Two. Risotto was a fantastic way to take out your aggression—I love risotto and the one time I made it, it actually turned out fantastic. I may need to try this version now. Thanks for sharing and thanks for speaking up!

    YOU GO GIRL!! I never have the balls to say something like that to someone :( I’m honestly afraid of getting my nose broken from being punched in the face or getting my hair pulled out from some psycho girl. Yeah, I have whack fears. But I wish I could speak my mind like you!! So proud of you and way to stand up for people! I hope Jessica Simpson reads this post :)

    • Jessica replied: — April 30th, 2012 @ 3:17 pm

      I am never one to say anything. Usually I am too embarrassed, but this guy made me SO mad!!

      P.S. Your fears are so not whack. Hair pulling from a psycho girl is totally scary. I was convinced this guy was going to key my car….thankfully I think I embarrassed him!

    There’s sooo many dumb people in the world who have no respect for others. If there’s 2 things I diligently try to teach my kids is to be grateful and show respect and if they can grow up learning these two values, I’ll be a happy camper! I don’t think you were rude at all…and I saw a pic of Jessica Simpson showing her tumm on a magazine cover the other day in line at the checkout and almost passed out, #HOT sorry for the long blah blah..

    Gina @ Running to the Kitchen — April 30, 2012 @ 3:20 pm

    Amen! What you did is not rude at all. Rude is what he was saying! You handled that way better than I would’ve. There would’ve been cursing involved if it were me 😉 Also, if this is what comes out of you being riled up, you should get pissed more often :) Looks deeeeelicious!

    Kathryn — April 30, 2012 @ 3:21 pm

    You handled the situation perfectly – that guy obviously had an ego even bigger than his ass so I’m so glad you took him down a peg or two!

    Sarah Toasty — April 30, 2012 @ 3:24 pm

    gorgeous risotto! and kudos to putting the asshole in his place! I’m so sick of everyone feeling like they can bash jessica because she’s a prego! She’s a genius business lady, despite what Newlyweds portrayed her as, and has every right to gain weight during her pregnancy. If she’s healthy and her baby is healthy it is no ones business, especially from such an obvious hypocrite. Blargh I don’t know if i would have had the balls to say something to them although i know i would have been as mad as you were!

    Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray — April 30, 2012 @ 3:25 pm

    Wow, good for you–I always wish I could say stuff like that (I sure do think it often enough), but I’m never brave enough. You’re awesome for telling that guy what he really, really needed to hear.

    In other news, this risotto looks fab. 😉

    OMG, that makes me so mad! Why is any woman’s worth based on whether or not some random guy would “bang” her? I thought neanderthals like that died out years ago. Good for you for saying something and that risotto looks fantastic.

    Guy #2….kind of an ass??!! I’m glad that he leaves the gym whenever he sees you there. Perhaps one day he will have enough gumption, respect, to come up to you and apologize for his moronic comments and attitude.

    The risotto looks great!

  18. 18

    Devon — April 30, 2012 @ 3:37 pm

    Wow. What a douchenozzle. I’m glad you said something.

    Anyway, I want your risotto. Like now. I’ve been on a diet & I NEED SOME CARBS LIKE WHOA.

    Amy @ The Nifty Foodie — April 30, 2012 @ 3:40 pm

    Girl. I’m SO glad you told that @sshole something! He needed a dose of reality (as do many others…I hate how mean people are being to Jessica Simpson about her pregnancy)! Homeboy probably hasn’t gotten attention from a girl in years anyway. Psh. What.a.tool!

    That risotto btw sounds amazing. What a perfect dish for the summer! I love fresh corn. :-)

  20. 20

    Rebecca S. — April 30, 2012 @ 3:41 pm

    I wish I would have the guts to say something like that! Ridiculous that a beautiful, successful woman is judged like that. Your risotto looks beautiful and delicious too!

  21. 21

    Rachel — April 30, 2012 @ 3:43 pm

    Go you! I think it’s time we take a stand against rubbish like that. We need to let people know that meanness is not ok, ever. Seriously, though, I’m sure Jessica Simpson has accomplished a lot more in her life than that jerk. Besides, it’s the beauty in the heart that matters.

    Brian @ A Thought For Food — April 30, 2012 @ 3:52 pm

    So funny… I’m launching a post on risotto tonight as well! We’re blog twins! This sweet corn risotto looks absolutely marvelous!

    Nicole {Sweet Peony} — April 30, 2012 @ 4:01 pm

    Go you!!! I’m so glad you told that guy what’s up!! I never have the nerve to speak my mind to people like that… I need lessons :)

    On a brighter note, this risotto looks amaaaazing. So fresh and creamy… a new take on creamed corn. I’m dying for a bowl!!!

  24. 24

    Kimiko — April 30, 2012 @ 4:16 pm

    I don’t think what you said is rude at all, and I appluad you for your guts to stand up to the guy. IMO, if you would stand up for a random celebrity who isn’t there to defend herself, then I’d imagine you would also stand up for another person who either can’t, or might need a kind individual like yourself to stand up for them on their behalf. There needs to be more people like you in this world, that’s for sure.

    And omg CORN risotto? I <3 corn in any shape or form.

    Eva @ Eva Bakes — April 30, 2012 @ 4:18 pm

    Rachel Cooks (formerly Not Rachael Ray) — April 30, 2012 @ 4:24 pm

    GO YOU! Way to have the balls to say something. I’m totally impressed. I was on the treadmill next to a guy that smelled so bad like cigarette smoke that I wanted to puke and I couldn’t even move two machines down b/c I didn’t want to offend him. You inspire me 😉

    And this risotto? Holy smokes, what amazing comfort food!

  27. 27

    JulieD — April 30, 2012 @ 4:28 pm

    I say good for you for telling him…I completely agree with you! The risotto looks fabulous…I need to try your recipe!

    I’m SO proud of you for that. People really suck and need to keep their opinions to themselves so bravo to you for speaking up.

  31. 31

    Lauren {Adventures in Flip Flops} — April 30, 2012 @ 6:17 pm

    I’ve been known to say things to people like that. It makes me happy when they’re embarrassed. I mean, it’s one thing to have an opinion (I’m a legs guy, so she’s not my style, or whatever) and quite another to say something so misogynistic. Don’t even get me started. Gah.

  32. 32

    Nina — April 30, 2012 @ 6:18 pm

    Seriously, you just made my day!

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to tell someone what’s what at the gym, for very similar comments! Even worse is when they are talking about other people in the gym. It enrages me to the point of absurdity.

    And you are so right! This recipe, these pictures – they totally scream of summer. For which I am not so patiently waiting!

    Joanne @ Fifteen Spatulas — April 30, 2012 @ 6:33 pm

    Good for you for saying something!!! What a jerk. You go girl!

    angela — April 30, 2012 @ 6:50 pm

    good for you for saying something! who cares what ppl weigh, esp when they are pregnant. its a womans time to enjoy herself and not worry about being judged just because she’s a celebrity. pathetic.

  35. 35

    Averie @ Averie Cooks — April 30, 2012 @ 7:40 pm

    Good for you! I am impressed with you saying something to them. AS IF they were Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt (they thought they were though, I’m sure). The things that come out of people’s mouths never cease to amaze.

    Lovely risotto. Bet the corn makes it so creamy!

  36. 36

    Rebecca M — April 30, 2012 @ 8:09 pm

    You are awesome! That was the perfect thing to say! Way to go! I wish more people (myself included) would speak up when someone disrespects another person like that. What he said was so uncalled for. It’s attitudes like that guy’s attitude that make some women feel pressured to be super skinny. I am really glad she’s put on weight during her pregnancy. I hear of so many women and celebrity women who seem way too skinny during their pregnancies. I’m really glad you said something. :-) Gee, now I’m craving corn and I wonder why… 😉 I’ve never made risotto but I do believe I’m going to try your recipe. :-)

    Jessi — April 30, 2012 @ 8:27 pm

    DessertForTwo — April 30, 2012 @ 9:16 pm

    I’m so glad you said something! That guy was such a jerk! Is that what he’s going to say to his pregnant wife?? Ugh.
    I love your sass mouth. Mine gets me in trouble way too much, but sometimes you just have to say something!

    I voted for ya! :)

    Leslie — April 30, 2012 @ 9:50 pm

    I thought being preggo was the one time when a woman could gain as much weight as she wanted and no one would judge. Thanks jerk face for trying to take that away from us too.
    On a different note, I’m glad your got worked up enough to make that tasty risotto. My post-baby belly thanks you for the yummy :-)

  41. 41

    Heather — April 30, 2012 @ 10:13 pm

    AMEN girl! so glad you had the decency to speak up about his comments. and honestly, even if he was in top shape there’s still no reason to degrade anyone like that!

    in other news, the risotto sounds amazing!

  42. 42

    Jen at The Three Little Piglets — April 30, 2012 @ 11:46 pm

    I know right! Some people are just so rude. I’m glad you put him in his place – sounds like the SOB deserved it!

    Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious — May 1, 2012 @ 12:03 am

    I love you. Seriously. I’m so glad you said something to that ass. What a joke!

    On a more pleasant note, I’m loving this risotto. It’s been a while since I’ve last made any kind of risotto so I’ll be sure to make it soon. Thanks for the inspiration, both in the food world and real life where you should have the courage to embarrass that tool at your gym.

    Heather of Kitchen Concoctions — May 1, 2012 @ 12:03 am

    Good for you for speaking up! I totally agree that there is too much criticism of people and body image out there. I am sick of it! But risotto is always good!

  45. 45

    Jesica @ Pencil Kitchen — May 1, 2012 @ 4:08 am

    That guy is an ass! AN ASS! Jessica Simpson has always had difficulties containing her weight. All girls do! Its amazing how she can let herself go for her baby! and for her own happiness! Btw, awesome for telling him off like that! The corn risotto is great too!

  46. 46

    Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen — May 1, 2012 @ 4:33 am

    Good for you! I’m glad you set him straight. Why do people feel so free to judge others so critically?

    Seriously, I am SO proud of you for saying that!!!! Hopefully you gave him something to think about. Sounds like he’s pretty embarrassed…..which he should be! Beauty isn’t a size, it’s a healthy attitude no matter what your size!

  54. 54

    Megan {Country Cleaver} — May 1, 2012 @ 10:30 am

    Virtual High Five, Jess!! I wish I had the proverbial stones to say that to someone! And it sounds like he needed to hear it. I’d so be your gym buddy – kicking our own asses into shape on the hamster-wheels and verbally bitch slapping assholes every step of the way.

  55. 55

    Shannon O'Connell — May 1, 2012 @ 10:38 am

    I absolutely love you for this! As a plus size girl (whose down 65.2 pounds as of yesterday), I applaud you! The guy was a douche and needed to be called out.

  56. 56

    Katie — May 1, 2012 @ 10:53 am

    I’m glad that you said it, actually. I wish more people would speak up in situations like that. As someone with a history of body issues, I’ve gotten so I speak up all the time. I think it needs to be said more often.

  57. 57

    Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine) — May 1, 2012 @ 11:13 am

    Yeah, you’re totally my hero for that. It totally reminds me of a Sex and the City quote where two guys are calling Miranda fat and Charlotte says “SHE JUST HAD A BABY!” and Miranda goes “Yeah, that’s right, I just had a baby. WHAT’S YOUR EXCUSE?” So, go you! That’s awesome! I never have the guts to speak up, and I really wish I did. The best I got was when a “friend” posted on their Facebook “I don’t always talk to English majors, but when I do, I ask for cream with my coffee” and I wrote back “Huh? I don’t have the resources to make you coffee at my marketing position at an energy company. Can I interest you in a press release or postcard about solar panels?”

    Also, this risotto looks fan-freaking-tastic. Western Mass sweet corn is the best, so I’ll have to utilize it and make this!

    Heidi @ Food Doodles — May 1, 2012 @ 4:45 pm

    I love that you said that to the guy at the gym! Awesome! Uh, I remember getting so many rude comments while I was pregnant, and I didn’t even gain any extra than I should have. What makes people think it’s OK to say stuff like that, even if it’s not to someone’s face? Good for you for saying something!!
    Delicious looking risotto! I never thought of putting corn in risotto – I can’t wait for corn season here!

    Noelle — May 2, 2012 @ 2:17 pm

    AH-MEN! I used to be 50 pounds overweight, and endured many cruel comments throughout middle school and high school. Today, because I know exactly what it feels like, I will never comment on someone’s weight. You never know what issues that person is going through. I choose to make fun of the aspects of a person that they can change, like a rotten attitude :) Haha, good for you for standing up to that guy. Some people just need to be taken down a peg. Maybe now he’ll have a bit more compassion.

    PS-this risotto needs to be in my pie hole NOW.

    natalie@thesweetslife — May 2, 2012 @ 10:12 pm

    YES. YES. YES. don’t feel a tiny bit bad about what you said–totally called for and I would’ve done the same thing!

    Ann — May 3, 2012 @ 1:36 am

    First off – the sweet corn risotto looks FAB! …judging by the comments here, you have said what others are truly thinking! GOOD FOR YOU! What a poser. I don’t know what I would have done, but I sure was thinking about throwing stones in glass houses.

    Grrrr…I’m getting all worked up on behalf of humanity! UGH!

  71. 71

    Rachel — May 3, 2012 @ 11:18 am

    Oh my gosh – not rude at ALL on your part! I’m actually SO glad and impressed you said something… people like that really need to be called out on their assholery!!!

    It’s not rude to call people on their BS in my book. I say good for you.

    Honestly, I’ve never gotten the whole fascination with celebrities and making fun of their everyday life. They’re just people, too…

  74. 74

    Jeanette — May 3, 2012 @ 10:45 pm

    You go girl, so proud of you! It is so much easier to judge others than to critique ourselves.

    TeenyLittleSuperChef — May 4, 2012 @ 4:31 pm

    You are such a bada**! Way to be for telling that turd exactly what all us women would probably loved to have said but would be too intimidated to speak up. I hate how people are so quick to judge without taking a minute to examine themselves first. Nobody’s perfect, even celebrities. And nobody’s deserves to be bashed for being the way they are… even celebrities. Way to go, girl! Way to go!

    When I hear someone making rude derogatory comments it just show how insecure that jackass is. Jessica Simpson is beautiful and she seems like a really good person. I’m not perfectly nice all the time but I have made a real effort in my life to be overall more positive and uplifting of others and have less cheap laughs at someone else’s expense. I still joke around and will make fun of people sometimes but not maliciously and less than I used to. The older I get the more I worry about my own self and being a better person than unfairly judging others. I’m glad you said something! Way to go!

    I am seriously in awe of you for speaking up – so many times, horrible things happen where I want to say something but like you, I’m afraid I’m going to appear rude and like others, I’m worried about the consequences from the person I’m berating. I wish I had the strength and courage to do what you did. For now, I’ll cheer you on and make your sweet corn risotto.

    Thank you! From all the “not so Barbie Doll perfect” girls out there who struggle daily to fit into a society of over judgmental people. If more people would step up and say enough is enough, maybe there woudn’t be so many young girls out there with eating disorders. “I love ya girl.” hey by any chance that wasn’t the Anytime fitness was it? I think I’ve seen those guys! Bozo’s!

    I made this tonight – very good! I did have to make some substitutions – large sweet yellow onion for the shallots, and prosecco for the sauvignon blanc. I will definitely make this again!

    First time on your site and can’t wait to try this recipe. Also, NICE WORK on telling that guy what’s up! That’s the kind of guy who thinks that beautiful women will fall at his feet and he deserves it. Please. Way to stand up for the sisters!

    […] Sweet Corn Risotto by The Novice Chef! holy moly. This girl is so not novice. I had the pleasure of getting to know Jessica at the DOLE salad conference last month in Carmel, and she.is.hysterical. And wouldn’t ya know that I came straight home from the conference and immediately made her sweet corn risotto for myself? It was incredible. […]

    Amen! The guy should have seen that one coming from a mile away–not that it sounds like he’d be able to outrun it even if he did see it coming. Holy criperoni. I can see why you needed this scrumptious-looking risotto.

    This looks delicious! I can’t believe you said that (in an approving voice)–I’ve always wanted to do something like that and I’m so glad you had the guts to just get out there and say it. I totally agree with everything you said!

    Also–the way you talk about the gym is hilarious!! (20 lbs, 3 minutes..). It reminds me of Jim Gaffigan’s stand up “Mr. Universe” where he talks about the gym a lot. It is on Netflix instant and I highly recommend–so funny!

    OMG, you rock!! I love that you spoke up to guy #2!! Tough but totally appropriate in response to his comments. That plus a recipe with sweet corn? I just came across your blog (thanks to Jenna @ Eat, Live, Run) and think you’re fantastic already!

    I absolutely love your reaction to that ass. I would have done the same thing. Since when can full-figured women not be considered beautiful. Remember Marilyn Monroe?
    Anyways, I am putting these ingredients on my grocery list and making this next week for sure!

    I just made this and it is delicious! I used fresh Jersey sweet corn. I love to tweak recipes, but this one is perfect! Nice job and thank you! My family thought crab, shrimp & clams would also be a nice addition. Thanks again!
