At the request of @maso, and prompted by @SamIAm2, here is the mushroom and truffle risotto recipe that SWMBO concocted to go with the Dizzy Pig Peking duck breast last week.

Recipe in the link below ...

... it's easy and quite hands on, really worth the effort. The trick is to use a proper truffle oil (not truffle flavoured) and a good selection of tasty mushrooms. I use a mixture of chestnut, oyster, enoki and shiitake mushrooms.

Some lovely mushrooms with cooked duck breast lurking in the background:


Selection of uncooked mushrooms:

     Beautiful cook. It looks delicious.

    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn. A curing chamber for bacterial transformation of meats...

    Thanks for posting. Going to order the truffle oil and get going on this. Your SWMBO did a good thing here. :)

    Yep, she definitely did. But she always does. Must emphasise that a proper truffle oil is necessary, we went through two "truffle flavoured" oils that tasted like plastic before finding one that was decent.
