    This risotto is absolutely gorgeous! Didn't change a thing except for using a combination of reg mushrooms and wild mushrooms bc I didn't have all wild. Lovely!  -  29 Oct 2012

    Made this for a dinner party which i served with Focacia and Italian Salad. Simple but so delicious. Have made quite a few times now. Can use mixture of mushrooms but would not change the Porcini mushrooms as they give such a great flavour.  -  21 Sep 2013
