Gordon Ramsay Mushroom Risotto with Parmesan Cheese

This Hell’s Kitchen Mushroom Risotto recipe is delightful. It is one of the most uncomplicated variants of all risotto recipes. The secret comes from using portobello mushrooms and white mushrooms with chicken stock, but you can substitute vegetable stock if you like.

I don’t mind babysitting Risotto, it’s simple enough to do, and you can do other things as you keep the corner of your eye on the Risotto. You can find the vegetable stock base in the supermarket. You can also make it yourself by simmering, stirring vegetables, celery, carrot, and onion, and then straining the liquid. The result is so worth the try.

Equipment You Need To Make Gordon Ramsay’s Risotto?

  • Saucepan: In a saucepan, warm the broth. That’s not it! You cannot use brothy, chilly liquids.
  • Skillet: For this recipe, you’ll need two skillets. For cooking the mushrooms and making the Risotto, you’ll need two. You can use the skillet to make the Risotto if you’re as lazy as I am.
  • Spatula: A lot of stirring will be required for this recipe. A spatula is ideal for this. Even if it doesn’t aid your arm, it’ll assist you in making a fantastic risotto.

My favorite pan to make Risotto is a 12-Inch Professional Grade All-Clad D3 Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Fry Pan. Great for cooking at higher heat with oils to develop foods with full, rich flavor, color, and crisp texture.

I’ve used and recommend both cookware sets, the ScanPan 10-Piece Cookware Set and the All-Clad Tri-Ply Stainless Steel Cookware; both are well-made pans with a solid, heavy bottom, heat fast, and they get the job done. Visit the ScanPan or All-Clad on Amazon. Available at Amazon.
