Pair it with Creation Pinot Noir

Ingredients

  • 250 g  risotto rice
  • 1 cup  dried porcini/wild mushrooms
  • 250 ml white wine
  • 2 litres chicken stock
  • 100 g  butter
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 200 g  button mushrooms, cut into quarters
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup  parmesan, grated
  • 20 g flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Put the dried mushrooms in the stock with the wine and bring to the boil. Once the stock has boiled, steep for approximately 1 hour. Drain the liquid and keep to one side.
  2. Roughly chop the porcini. Melt the butter in a separate pot and sweat the onions and garlic until translucent. Add the button mushrooms and saute for 3 minutes until the mushrooms soften. Add the soaked porcini and then the rice and fry for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the mushroom stock, just a couple of ladles at a time, to cover the rice. Stir every couple of minutes. Keep adding the stock and stirring until the rice is cooked. (Approximately 20 – 30 minutes.)
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the grated parmesan, lemon juice and chopped parsley. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper and serve.
