I love to order porcini risotto at Italian restaurants, but a plate of anything with porcini in it at a decent eatery will easily set me back by about S$25. That is why it makes economical sense for me to cook this at home. I’m glad I did, because I totally enjoy the generous serving of porcini (I use a 1 oz pack for 2 persons) at less than half the price. The water used to soak the dried porcini is used as part of the stock for the risotto, resulting in a deep and earthy taste.
