Risotto mit Spargeln und Käse

Risotto with asparagus

We spend the whole year looking forward to asparagus season. In this risotto created by Christian Kuchler white asparagus is paired with «Der edle Maxx 365» cheese to form the perfect partnership. This wonderfully creamy risotto is a surefire success and all you could wish for in a dish!

  • Main course


serves 4 Personen
200 g risotto rice
200 g «Der edle Maxx 365»
1 piece(s) onion, finely chopped

200 g butter
500 ml white wine
200 ml water


  1. Thoroughly brush and wash the rind sections of “Der edle Maxx 365” cheese.

    Then, add to boiling water. 

    Pass the water of the rind through a sieve and set it to one side.

    Sauté the onions together with the rice in 50g of butter, until the onions go translucent.

    Keep deglazing with the white wine and the rind water until the risotto rice is softened.

    Then take the pan off the heat and melt 150g butter. To finish, add 200g of finely grated “Der edle Maxx 365” cheese and the asparagus.

«Der edle Maxx 365»

«Der edle Maxx 365»is the eldest member of the Maxx family. Even more powerful and spirited than its brothers, its very special, unique character is impressive. Its cheese crystals and ultra-creamy, meltingly delicious flavor captivate the taste buds as only a mature and seasoned cheese can. After “Der scharfe Maxx” cheese wheels have spent five months in the maturation cellar, our master cheesemakers select some of the best wheels and use their skillful touch to nurture them for even longer – up to 365 days. This is how «Der edle Maxx 365» develops its unique personality. A carefully refined delicacy, it will offer you and your guests the very best in flavor. And also prove that it’s still possible to be dazzlingly charming and bursting with personality even at a mature age.
