Haute-Lozère Porcini Risotto, Beef jus

Alain Ducasse Edition shares a recipe : "Haute-Lozère Porcini Risotto, Beef jus", a tasty autumn dish.

Alain Ducasse explains: "Cooking is generosity. Food has much more flavor when it is shared happily with others. The key to really enjoy food is a beautiful set table with friends around it and lively conversation. Here is a hearty but regal dish that one would be proud to serve to guests. I love these kinds of dishes because they embody the real values of a meal: friendship and conviviality."

This recipe is extracted from the book "Best Of Alain Ducasse".
