If you like mushrooms, you'll love this risotto! Both sliced and ground ceps (or porcini mushrooms, as they're known in Italy) provide an abundance of wild flavour, enhanced with lovage, nutmeg and a little garlic, and of course, a drizzle of finest truffle-infused olive oil. Rather than spending hours picking your own wild mushrooms and slaving over a hot stove, you can enjoy all this wild flavour in the ping of your microwave!

Part of our range of authentic Italian dishes, straight out of the family cookbook of 'Nonna' ('Nana') Gagliardi! To find out more about these original family recipes, click here.
