Oven Baked Mushroom and Taleggio Risotto


Oven Baked Mushroom and Taleggio Risotto
A seriously good risotto for the cold winter nights we are experiencing at the moment. This risotto is oven baked (meaning a lot less arm ache) and I also decided to finish it off under the grill with some Taleggio - which worked really well. Taleggio, if you aren't too familiar is a semi-soft, washed-rind cheese from the Valtaleggio region in northern Italy, near Lombardy. It's fairly mild in flavor (many call it the Italian version of Brie) and it has a moist to oozy texture. Basically it's yummy!!
