  1. Love this! What fun doing a video. I’ve only done one and much harder than it looks. Risotto looks gorgeous too.

      Its a milestone birthday next week, so I’m going to get a GoPro and do some proper videos. As you say, its a lot harder than writing a blog post!

  2. I love mushroom risotto and this looks hearty and delicious. Love the video as well.

  3. That looks amazing Dave, the video was really good too. I had read that adding the stock all at once makes for a sticky starchy risotto but you’ve obviously proved them wrong! The mushrooms look fabulous, I often make risotto similarly except I use dried wild mushrooms and use the rehydrating liquid as the stock to intensify the mushroom flavour. I love that you added the spinach at the end, wilted spinach is wonderful and would pair with the earthy mushroom flavours very well. Congrats on the youtube site!

  4. Congrats Dave on your You Tube video, so nice to see you in action. Delicious recipe and I was thinking it is time for a cozy risotto too. Take Care
