A classic risotto that’s perfect for wild mushroom season to make the most of the beautiful girolles. If you’re short on time use a good quality vegetable stock rather than make the mushroom stock – you can always add your mushroom trimmings to this as you bring it up to the boil. It’s important to add hot stock to the rice, otherwise it will cool the risotto down with each new addition and change the consistency of the finished dish.
