Risotto 101

gtrekker2003 Jul 18, 2007 04:26 PM


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?

    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!

      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.
