    Melt the butter in a large, deep frying pan over a medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook gently for a few minutes, until softened.

    Add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes. Add the rice and stir until coated in butter, then add the wine and stir for 2-3 minutes until the liquid has been absorbed.

    Add the stock, a ladleful at a time, stirring in each addition until absorbed.

    Keep ladling and stirring until the stock is finished and the rice is al dente but creamy - this will take about 20 minutes at a gentle simmer.

    Check the seasoning, cover and allow it to rest for 2-3 minutes.

  • 6

    Heat a knob of butter in a heavy-based frying pan, then add the Parma Ham and fry for 1 minute or until crisp. Add the Porcini mushrooms to the pan and toss until they are cooked.

  • 7

    Add these ingredients to the rice, stirring the mascarpone, peas and rocket into the rice. Serve immediately with large Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese shavings scattered over the top.

  • It’s ready!

The perfect



Discover it CHABLIS

Try with a fresh, fruity Chablis. The natural acidity of the wine will cut through the oozing creaminess of the risotto to create the perfect combination of flavours and texture.
