Ok, it takes a bit of time to stir but this risotto is pure comfort food! Make an event of it by sharing the stirring while enjoying a good glass of wine. Note, when I say thick ham I mean ‘thick’ ham, about 2cm thick. This will make a hearty serving for two or a reasonable serving for three.
Buy the best quality ham you can afford. I don’t regard this as a cheap meal but a indulgent one.
