Risotto ai Funghi
Risotto with Mushrooms
England was such a joy for me but never more so than when I discovered the many forests and woods full of fungi. During autumn I like to go to the woods and forage; they are a haven of peace and where I feel at my best.
I have passed my passion onto my children and whenever we can at the weekend we will go on mushroom hunts, both girls competing with each other as to who can find the first porcini and who can fill their basket the fastest!
Sometimes, as a treat, I bring the camping stove and we end the day with a mushroom feast, making a wonderful risotto. If you don’t have wild mushrooms, then use cultivated ones plus dried porcini.
