Rice Mushrooms and Speck


I am again in my home in Orlando.

I miss so much my Sicily!!!

today I will show you a winter recipe.

It is rice and mushrooms, not a risotto because risotto is so soft, but a fried rice because today I want something crispy!

Here are the ingredients and the steps. You can find the video recipe in my Instagram page (my profile - highlights) or in my YouTube channel.


  • Rice

  • Mushrooms

  • Speck (or bacon if you don't find it)

  • Black Olives

  • Grated Parmesan Cheese

  • Garlic

  • Parsley

  • White Wine

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • wash and cut in little pieces the mushrooms

  • place them in a frying pan (plain) and cook for 5 minutes or so, so they will release the water

  • add the Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic, Parsley and White Wine and cook for another 5 minutes

  • In another frying pan, place the Speck (or bacon if you don't find it) and fry plain for few minutes until it become crispy

  • chop the Speck in little pieces

  • meantime you boil the Rice.

  • when the Rice is cooked, place it in the frying pan with the mushrooms and add part of the Speck. Fry for few minutes.

  • Add grated Parmesan cheese and serve with the remaining Speck on top.

Buon Appetito!
