The Porcini Mushroom Risotto That Won Over My Italian Husband

We’re partnering with Lagostina to celebrate the Italian Sunday dinner with stories, recipes, and videos about this special family tradition. Here, blogger and cookbook author Kristina Gill shares her favorite authentic risotto.

One of the most coveted residences at my undergrad university was the Italian house. Not just because of the central location and he fact that you were guaranteed your own room, but because of the food. Having studied all aspects of Italian purely for passion (I was a political science major, not an Italian major) it was a perfect place to live my senior year. I made friends with Lucio, the cook at the Italian house, and hung out in the kitchen close to meal times to learn how to cook.
