This recipe promises a journey through rich flavors and creamy textures, guaranteed to enchant your taste buds and leave you craving more.

Why Choose Chanterelles?

Among the myriad of mushrooms at our disposal, chanterelles stand out for their vibrant color, delicate texture, and slightly peppery taste with a hint of fruitiness. Their ability to infuse dishes with a depth of flavor and luxurious feel makes them the perfect choice for our risotto.


  • 1 cup arborio rice
  • 2 cups fresh chanterelle mushrooms, cleaned and chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth, kept warm
  • ½ cup white wine (optional)
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish


  1. Prepare the Base: In a large pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, sautéing until translucent and fragrant.

  2. Toast the Rice: Stir in the arborio rice, ensuring each grain is coated with oil. Cook until the edges become slightly transparent, about 2 minutes. Pour in the white wine (if using), stirring until fully absorbed.

  3. Add the Chanterelles: Mix in the chopped chanterelle mushrooms. Allow them to soften and release their moisture, enriching the rice with their exquisite flavor.

  4. The Broth Process: Begin adding the warm vegetable broth, one ladle at a time, stirring constantly. Wait until each addition is almost fully absorbed before adding the next. This process should take about 18-20 minutes. The rice should be tender yet firm to the bite.

  5. Final Touches: Remove from heat. Stir in the butter and Parmesan cheese until the risotto reaches a creamy consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Serve with Elegance: Plate your Chanterelle Mushroom Risotto, garnishing with fresh parsley. A sprinkle of extra Parmesan cheese on top adds a finishing touch to this delightful dish.

  • Chemical analysis, moisture-preserving, and antioxidant activities of polysaccharides from Pholiota nameko by fractional precipitation

  • This study explored Pholiota nameko (P. nameko) polysaccharide fractions, PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80, purified by gradient concentrations of ethanol (40%, 60%, and 80% (v/v)). The physicochemical properties, functional group composition, moisture-preserving, and antioxidant ability were determined. The results indicate that the polysaccharide contents of PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80 are 45.12%, 78.04%, and 72.22%, respectively, while the β-glucan, protein, and uronic acid contents are 20.20%, 12.20%, and 10.15%, respectively; 11.24%, 14.53%, and 26.94%; and 5.99%, 7.73%, and 3.78%. Furthermore, PNP-60 has better moisture absorption, while PNP-80 has better antioxidant ability and H2O2-injury resistance activity

Indeed, he sits at Buffon's very table, in Buffon's very room, where the elegant i8th century furnishings have remained unchanged, the walls adorned with the graceful i8th century oils of Jean-Jacques Bachelier, depicting the birds of the several continents.
