My tips for a perfect mushroom risotto

Two things are essential for a perfect risotto: the rice quality, You can choose between a Carnaroli and Vialone Nano. And the mushroom broth, that you will need to flavor the risotto and give it that scent of the forest that, in a dish made of fresh mushrooms, must be intense and enveloping. Then, the classic mixing with butter and Parmesan cheese. I recommend a 30 months that brings the right flavor to the dish. Mushrooms, instead, trifoliamo them apart so Blanch leaving them the right consistency. And we add them to the risotto at the end of cooking: so much, The mushroom flavor is full and intense thanks to the broth.
