Ok, it takes a bit of time to stir but this risotto is pure comfort food! Make an event of it by sharing the stirring while enjoying a good glass of wine. Use about a 2cm thick slab of ham so it cuts into cubes easily. This will make a hearty serving for two or a reasonable serving for three.
Buy the best quality ham you can afford. I don’t regard this as a cheap meal but a indulgent one.
