How to make Bacon & Mushroom Risotto

Most people avoid making risotto because they believe that it is very hard to make. You do need a bit of skill to make a risotto and a bit of experience, but it is not as hard to make a risotto as you might think.

As you can see from this recipe I have pre made a Base Risotto which I use to make this Bacon and Mushroom Risotto.

When adding the stock to the rice, be sure to only stir the risotto in any one direction, don't be tempted to change direction half way through. This will not remove the starch from the rice as efficiently.
