    Recipe is pretty easy for anyone unused with risotto. In my case, I prefere my risotto a bit more al dente. I put 900 ml of veggies stock and I could have used less. Something like 700-800 ml. I also mixed gratted parmesan (mix of parmesan, reggiano and romano) at the end of cooking, not as dressing.

    I mixed some parmesan in with the butter. More tastier! Very nice and easy to make.

    Lovely recipe. Recipe didn’t call for stock to be heated but I did as every risotto I ever made uses hot stock. Drizzle a little olive oil over the risotto once plated nice finish.

    Great risotto. I used a mix of field and button mushrooms and no dried porcini. 11 year old that can’t stand mushrooms ate 2 bowls ( we did pick the large bits of mushrooms out before serving but). Will be making this again.

    I made this last week and it was a big hit. I couldn't find dried porchini mushrooms so I added a mix of shiitake, king oyster, shimeji and portobellini mushrooms. The recipe is straight forward and so easy to follow.
