Wild Mushroom-Squash Risotto

For my entree, I had the Wild Mushroom-Squash Risotto with cashew cream, pumpkin seeds, fresh herbs and frizzled leeks. Wow. I was stuffing this into my face it was so good. I cannot seem to make risotto right so I was jumping for joy when I saw this on the menu especially with my favorite things in the world: mushrooms and squash.
