I love when the weather starts to get colder and I can start cooking hardy meals again. The cold weather and the autumn ingredients are coming together right now and I decided to make one of my favorite dishes: Mushroom Risotto. Making risotto for me is second nature because I have done it so many times and it is such a satisfying all in one dish.
For this dish I made a classic risotto with Chanterelles Mushrooms cooked with the rice and a roasted Manzanita Bolete Mushroom on top. The Manzanita Bolete Mushroom is similar to the Porcini Mushroom but has a sweeter flavor and is big and meaty like the Porcini.
