Mushroom and truffle risotto (with pics)

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:


Cooking:



Large BGE and MMX, both with platesetter and cast iron grid. Superpeel for pizza, iDevice for temperature.
Cooking on the large in deepest, darkest England since Oct 2015. MMX added to the family Mar 2016.

    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven.
    "Bourbon slushies. Sure you can cook on the BGE without them, but why would you?"

    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.
