Ingredients (For 4 people): 1320 g of carnaroli rice • 3 leeks • 300 g shrimp • ½ glass white wine • 400 ml vegetable stock (or water) • 100 ml peanut oil • Laudemio Frescobaldi to taste • salt • chilli flakes • parsley • aromatic herbs (sage, bay, thyme, etc.)/2 cup Laudemio extra virgin olive oil, 4 cloves garlic peeled and cut in half, 100 gr cubed lard, 1/2 cup white wine, 4 large porcini mushroom caps, 4 grape leaves, salt.

Method: Put the heads and shells in a pan with some aromatic herbs and half a litre of water and cook on low heat until the broth has reduced by half, then strain. Remove the outer part of the leeks, wash them and slice them into very thin circles, putting a handful aside. Heat a drizzle of Laudemio Frescobaldi in a pan and add the leeks, sautéing them for a few minutes. Add the rice, letting it toast for a few minutes then deglaze with the white wine. Add the shrimp broth and season to taste with salt, then continue to cook the risotto, adding the vegetable broth a ladleful at a time until cooked. In the meantime, chop the shrimp and season with Laudemio Frescobaldi, a pinch of salt and chilli. In a pan, heat the peanut oil and fry the leeks set aside earlier, then place them on a paper towel and season with a pinch of salt. When the risotto is cooked, turn off the heat and add a drizzle of Laudemio Frescobaldi. Stir and leave to rest for one minute.
