Incorporate the broth and let it cook.

Few traditional dishes of Italian cuisine are more popular than risotto, one of the most reinterpreted recipes worldwide. The Cullera de Boix restaurant chef, Xavier Matarrodona, wanted to make a high-flying version by incorporating to the basic recipe three ingredients from the select gourmet pantry: ham shavings (which, if we want to take this to a higher level, should be from acorn-reared pigs), porcini mushrooms (the most highly valued mushroom by great cooks) and prawns (worthy competitors of shrimps). It will convince you for sure.
