Risotto with porcini mushrooms

Risotto with porcini mushrooms: this risotto is a great classic of Italian autumn in the kitchen. Obviously it's fresh mushrooms, Since we are in season. In this risotto with mushrooms I have also used pioppini and chanterelles (chanterelles) Since I found them all on the shelves of the local market, but you can follow the same recipe and use only the mushrooms.

Two things are essential for a perfect risotto: the quality of rice, You can choose between a Carnaroli and Vialone Nano (I used the latter) and the Mushroom broth as you will need it to flavor the risotto and bid him that scent of wood 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 add them to risotto at the end of cooking: so much, The mushroom flavor is full and intense thanks to the broth.
