A good risotto is both comforting and elegant but it does take time - all that stirring! So we're happy to do it for you! We're using Arborio rice here and we cook it slowly until plump and creamy, adding vegetable nage (a fancy name for stock) gradually in the time-honoured way. We use both dried porcini and fresh mushrooms for some extra shroomy flavour, with garlic, thyme, Parmesan and mascarpone and finish the dish with a touch of truffle oil.  We'll also include some extra stock for you to stir into the risotto as you reheat - it will make all the difference.
