If you read my website often, you’ll know that I have a serious bone to pick with restaurants that overcharge for risotto. It’s rice! People think it’s some exotic dish that’s impossible to prepare, when the reality is that it’s very achievable for most home cooks, even on weeknights. Master homemade risotto and then save your bucks for other things when you go out to eat.
If you can’t find the exact mushrooms I used in my version, feel free to experiment with other mushroom varieties.
