Mascarpone and Porcini Mushroom Risotto

« A magnificent risotto, suitable for a festive entrée which you can announce proudly, saying: ‘Il risotto al mascarpone con il funghi porcini.’ An entire trip summarized in a single phrase... It reminds me of the markets of Florence overflowing with dried ‘funghi porcini’.  »

½ cup (13 cl) dry white wine

  • Add 5 ladlefuls of stock, stirring all the while
  • Reduce heat to low
