Ingredients
  1. 3 tbsp olive oil
  2. 2 shallots, finely chopped
  3. 275g risotto rice
  4. 100ml dry white wine
  5. 850ml chicken stock, hot
  6. 2 rindless smoked bacon rashers, chopped
  7. 75g Barkham Blue, cubed
  8. 2 tbsp crème fraîche
  9. salt and freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. Add the shallots and cook over a low heat for 3 minutes. Add the rice and stir with a wooden spoon until the grains become translucent and have absorbed most of the oil.
  2. Pour in the wine and stir constantly until it is absorbed. Add sufficient hot stock to just cover the rice, stir, and cook until all the liquid has been absorbed, stirring occasionally. Repeat this process two or three times until the stock is used up.
  3. Meanwhile, gently cook the bacon in a frying pan or grill until crispy.
  4. Stir the Barkham Blue and crème fraiche into the risotto. Grind over some pepper and taste to check the seasoning. Scatter over the bacon and serve immediately.
