Serves 4

  • 10 oz (280 g) arborio rice
  • ½ lb (500 g) morel mushrooms
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 ¾ oz + ¾ oz (50 g + 20 g) butter
  • ½ bunch finely chopped chervil
  • 6 ½ cups (1.5 l) vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper from a peppermint


Preparation of the morel mushrooms and other ingredients:

  • Reheat the vegetable stock
  • Carefully wash the morel mushrooms in cool water using a soft brush very delicately
  • Cook them in ¾ oz butter and 3 ½ fl oz (10 cl) of water over low heat for 8 minutes
  • Peel and cut the onion into thin slices

Preparation of the risotto:

  • In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil and add the round onion slices; sweat them making sure they don’t turn brown
  • Add the rice and stir continuously with a wooden spoon
  • When the grains of rice become pearly-colored, add a ladleful of stock, stir the rice
  • Continue adding ladleful by ladleful, stirring continuously without stopping
  • The rice will be cooked after about 25-30 minutes; the grains should not resist when bitten but the center should still be firm
  • Add the morel mushrooms, check seasoning
  • Now is the "mantecare" moment: Add the butter, cut into pieces, and the finely chopped chervil; mix well yet slowly due to the fragile morel mushrooms
  • Let stand 3 minutes and serve


You can also add 1 glass of vin jaune to deglaze the rice just before adding the last ladleful of stock

Suggested drink or wines

Patrick Chazallet suggests you serve a Crozes Ermitage red
