A full flavoured risotto, thanks to the rich taste of shiitake mushrooms & fragrant camembert, with crispy sliced duck breast. 



  • 100g KNORR Concentrated Liquid Stock
  • 2.5L Water, boiling
  • 100ml Olive oil
  • 2 Brown onions, chopped
  • 5 Cloves garlic, chopped 
  • 500ml White wine
  • 850g Arborio rice
  • 90ml Sweet soy sauce
  • 375g Shiitake mushrooms 
  • 5 Duck breasts, trimmed
  • 250g Prosciutto, sliced
  • 250g Camembert cheese, sliced
  • Green onions (shallots), finely chopped, to serve



  1. In a large pot make up the chicken stock by combining KNORR Concentrated Liquid Stock with boiling water. 
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan, add onion and garlic. Cook until softened.
  3. Add wine, cook down, then add rice. Stir, ladling in chicken stock gradually until rice is al dente. Stir through sweet soy sauce and mushrooms.
  4. While the risotto is cooking, cook the duck breasts until golden brown and still pink inside. Rest, then slice.
  5. Stir the duck, prosciutto and camembert into the risotto.
  6. Serve topped with green onions.


The risotto mix can be prepared ¾ through the cooking process earlier in the day if desired. Chill, then heat through when required, adding extra stock. Add camembert, prosciutto and duck just before serving.
