Your kit includes: 

  • K&M Risotto Starter

  • K&M Garlic Parmesan Compound Butter
  • K&M Grated Parmesan
  • Mushrooms
  • Shallot
  • Parsley


  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • White Wine (optional)


    1. Peel and finely mince the shallot. Brush any excess dirt off the mushrooms and slice into ½ inch pieces.
    2. Pick parsley leaves from stems and roughly chop. Set aside for garnish.
    3. In a large pan heat 2-3 Tbsp of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and sauté until soft – about 5-7 minutes. Then add your minced shallot and sauté until translucent – about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a clean plate and set aside.
    4. Add the risotto starter into the same pan (no need to clean it!) and reduce to medium heat. Break apart the risotto with a wooden spoon. Carefully pour in ½ cup white wine (or water) and simmer until the liquid is almost absorbed. Then add 1 cup water and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until absorbed and the rice is cooked. 
    5. Chef’s Tip: If you like your risotto more al dente, start with ½ cup of water and add more according to your taste.

    7. Turn the heat off and stir in 2-3 Tbsp compound butter. Fold in half of the mushrooms and any juice they released into the pan. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
    8. Transfer to a serving dish and top with your desired amount of parmesan, remaining mushrooms, and parsley. Serve and enjoy!
    9. Transfer to a serving dish and top with ½ cup parmesan, remaining mushrooms, and parsley. Serve and enjoy!
