Risotto 101

Hi!

I love a wild mushroom risotto in restaurants. I've tried to make it a long time ago and it was a failure.

Does anybody have good suggestions, beginner recipes, or tips?

Cheers,

    Here is a nice video on the topic starring Mark Bittman and Mario Batali. http://video.on.nytimes.com/?fr_story... You'll need a free registration with the NYTimes but if you are a Chowhound you probably already do.

      search the site for mushroom risotto to find a basic recipe. However, I don't use dried mushrooms but rather I saute fresh in olive oil and then add them at the end of cooking the risotto right before the cheese.

      Good luck!
