The recipe,
step by step

  1. 1

    Preparation of the risotto

    Cut the mushrooms into small cubes. Sweat them in butter with the finely chopped shallots and cayenne pepper, then pour in the rice.

    Roll it well in butter to make it shiny.

    In a separate pot, boil the water.

    Pour half of the boiling water over the mixture (rice, mushrooms, shallots, ...), salt and cook covered over low heat until the water is completely absorbed. Add the remaining water again until absorbed.

    When the rice is cooked, stir in the cream and parmesan cheese.

    Serve the risotto in a jug: you can possibly put a few sautéed mushrooms on top.

    Chef's tip

    If possible use Arborio type Italian round rice. For mushrooms, you can also use a mixture of wild mushrooms (porcini mushrooms, chanterelles...)
