For this risotto Tarik recommended porcini mushrooms, almond mushrooms and chestnut mushrooms – and it was simply delicious! The very, very delicate almond scent and taste was really special. Of course, other mushrooms can be used instead depending on the season and what is offered. King oyster mushrooms for example are available all year round and taste very well in the risotto.

How many times did I put a pastry man – a “Stutenkerl” – into my children’s Santa Claus’ boots. And how many times did one of them land in our ready-made boots for St. Nicholas Day in my own childhood. But so far I had never baked such a pastry man myself, although it’s really easy. And the result is just fun!
