Risotto is so versatile it can be taken from an everyday dish to a stylish dinner. Michelin starred chef Paul Heathcote has an amazing mushroom risotto recipe on the Great British Chefs website. Follow the recipe by Paul Heathcote and you will be able to give your risotto that professional finish. Paul uses store cupboard ingredients for the base, and a selection of fresh mushrooms, grated Parmesan and truffle oil.
Once you have mastered the base recipe it is easy to add fresh ingredients such as leeks, spinach, mushrooms or fish. Half an hour to spare - Arborio risotto rice, a shallot or an onion, a glass of white wine or Vermouth, vegetable stock, mushrooms, a little Parmesan to grate over - you've just made a fabulous meal and saved money too.
Risotto is a dish I turn to again and again, especially when time is short or I have a day when I'm struggling for dinner inspiration. A fabulous creamy risotto made with care is one of my top ten favourite meals.
