Mushroom risotto is the ultimate comfort food, and this masterclass shows it's easier to make than you think.
Heat the stock in a medium saucepan and keep simmering. Strain the dried mushrooms and reserve the soaking water. Chop the fresh mushrooms and set aside.
Melt 55g/2oz of the butter with the oil in a heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, thyme and bay leaf and cook until the onion is soft but not brown. Add the porcini or cep mushrooms and the fresh mushrooms and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
Add the rice and stir until the grains are well coated with fat – about 3-4 minutes. Add the wine and stir until it has been absorbed. Add the reserved mushrooms soaking water and cook until this too has almost all been absorbed.
Add the warm stock, a ladleful at a time, allowing the rice to absorb the liquid each time before adding the next ladleful. Continue like this until the rice is tender but still a little firm to the bite. When the rice is ready, fold in the grated parmesan and stir. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
