Morel risotto with Vin Jaune and Mont d'Or


Morel risotto with Vin Jaune and Mont d'Or
This is a rather special risotto recipe with Morel mushrooms, cooked with Jura Vin Jaune wine, and with Mont d'Or cheese added just before serving to make it extra creamy.

With the trio of morels, Vin Jaune and Mont d'Or, this is an ideal way to bring together the delicious flavours of the Franche-Comté region.

Do try to use a Vin Jaune if you can, even if it is rather expensive. Otherwise, any white wine made with Savignin grapes will do (and at a more reasonable price).
