The First Risotto of the Fall

I guess it's still technically summer, but with the weather finally cooling off a bit and the leaves starting to change, we found ourselves in a risotto mood the other night. There was nothing particularly interesting about this risotto (you can follow any of my other posted recipes) other than that I got to use a bit of truffle-infused olive oil that Olivia and her mother brought back for me from France.

Really excellent stuff, that. Other than that, it was a simple mushroom risotto, though not as good as I'd have hoped which I'm owing to my having run out of porcini mushrooms.

To go along with the risotto was a cucumber, tomato and feta salad concocted from what we picked up at the Myrtle Ave farm stand the other day.

To drink, a Pouilly Fuissé. Can't go wrong, there.
