Farro risotto with mushrooms & parmesan


                                                                                 1 tbsp olive oil
60 gm butter, coarsely chopped
4 golden shallots, finely chopped
1 leek, white part only, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 cup gm farro
3 prosciutto slices, thinly sliced
500 ml warm chicken stock
200 gm assorted mushrooms, chopped
50 gm dried porcini mushrooms
2 tbsp crème fraîche
50 gm finely grated parmesan, plus extra to serve
50 gm button or Swiss brown mushrooms, shaved on a mandolin

1 Heat olive oil and 20gm butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add shallot, leek and garlic and stir until tender (5 minutes), add farro and prosciutto and stir for 1 minute to coat grains. Reduce heat to medium, then gradually add stock a ladleful at a time, stirring until all is absorbed before adding the next ladleful, until grains are tender and stock is absorbed (25-30 minutes).
2 Meanwhile, heat remaining butter in a frying pan over high heat until foaming, add chopped mushrooms, stir until golden and tender (3-5 minutes) and add to risotto.
3 Add crème fraîche and parmesan to risotto, stir until thickened slightly (2 minutes), then season to taste and serve scattered with shaved raw mushroom and extra parmesan.
