Can’t Get Enough of Il Fornaio’s Dishes? Try Your Hand at This Mouthwatering Recipe

Whether Il Fornaio is your favorite restaurant at Del Mar Plaza or you’re constantly craving Italian dishes, we understand that sometimes you want some pasta or risotto right now, in your own home.

If that’s the case for you, we’d encourage you to reserve a spot in one of Il Fornaio’s monthly cooking classes. Each class focuses on whipping up dishes that were featured during the month’s Festa Regionale, and gives you a front-row seat to see our local chefs in action.

However, if you can’t make it to a class, there’s no need to worry! We’ve done some digging and found a recipe for Porcini Mushroom Risotto, created by Il Fornaio’s Executive Chef, Maurizio Mazzon. It’s a relatively simple recipe that comes together quickly, but the dish is also sophisticated enough for any special occasion.

Luckily, the recipe calls for ingredients you likely already have around your home, including white wine (which we recommend sipping as you cook).

Not into the cook-it-yourself experience? Il Fornaio and Enoteco del Fornaio will always have a seat for you. Visit Del Mar Plaza online to make a reservation or switch things up and try one of our other award-winning restaurants.
