3 cups stock
˝ chopped onion
6 tablespoons butter
1 3/4 cups Arborio rice
1 cup of porcini mushrooms
1 cup of dry white wine
3 tablespoons grated parmesan
Italian parsley


1) Heat the stock
2) Sauté the onion in a casserole with half the butter
3) Add the rice and salt, then mix
4) A few minutes after beginning to cook the rice, start adding

   a little stock at a time, stirring and waiting until the liquid

   is absorbed.

5) Halfway through cooking, add the wine, stir well, and allow it

   to be absorbed, and add the porcini mushrooms.
5) Continue adding stock, one ladle at a time, until it is all

   absorbed. It should take about 15 to 20 minutes.
