We have enjoyed mushroom risotto many times since this recipe was originally posted. You can see an updated version in recipe card format here.
One of the highlights of the Barolo vertical tasting I enjoyed earlier this fall at Pairings Wine & Food was the scrumptious mushroom risotto that paired so well with the wine. This great match served as a good reminder that one sure-fire way to make a great pairing is to serve traditional regional foods and wines together. Last night I attempted to duplicate this combination in some fashion. It was quite good, though I think my version of the risotto needs a little tweaking to compare with Ray’s version. But here’s my recipe, suggestions welcomed!
