I can't say I failed either! I was missing wild mushrooms. That earthy organic taste can't be obtained from normal mushrooms =( On the bright side, I have successfully cooked the risotto, but with bland mushrooms soo what's the point of making it?
Duck confit, no mistakes there =(
*** tip: sprinkle some shichimi on mushroom risotto and the cheese/mushroom taste will be brought out more plus the color is nice!***
