One of my favorite dishes to make for a stay at home date night is risotto. You can jazz it up any way you want and serve it as a main with a big green salad on the side, or you can serve it alongside a perfectly cooked steak, roasted chicken or grilled fish. Risotto is a super comforting dish and it has to be made with lots of attention and love – otherwise it can turn into a hot mess really quick!
This risotto is going to be part of my Valentines day menu – and I’m making it even more fabulous by incorporating a ton of Chanterelle mushrooms!
Chanterelle’s are all over my farmers markets right now and they are just so big and beautiful, it’s hard not to pick them up! They have an earthy and nutty flavor to them which makes this risotto dish an absolute winner. These mushrooms, coupled with a dab of mascarpone cheese, and you will have your hunny begging you to make this again and again!
