Risotto theory partially resolved

Back in October I posted my theory about risotto. Well to celebrating me GETTING THE JOB and Scott's birthday on Tuesday, we went to Jamie's Italian on Park Street! It's the second time we have been now and both times it has been really good!! This time I went for the truffle risotto... it was LUSH!!! Although it was very very good (obviously having truffle in it which I could never afford!) I don't think it was a million miles away from mine - It had lots more Parmesan in and probably alot of cream which makes it rich and lusciously fattening but to be honest it was almost too much; a slightly smaller portion and a side salad would have been more my taste I think! Probably because I never cook with cream or that much fat really either! So I guess my theory about risotto is only partially resolved, mine is good but not restaurant standard, but at the same time Jamie's didn't completely knock it out of the water... Oh well Scott will just have to keep treating me to expensive meals until this is sorted!
