First Time Risotto?

sasserwazr | Feb 8, 2009 12:27 AM

I'm writing because I have never made risotto. Not yet. But I am making tomorrow. Hopefully by the time I set out to execute a recipe, I will have been versed in what to expect. I'm sure some of you will be gushing with some words of caution and care, and there will be some pretentious chowhounds who will relish telling me what I should know and how ridiculous it is that I haven't reached their conclusions without a discussion board. Regardless, I'm pretty sure that I want to make a wild mushroom risotto as it is what-seems-to-be the standard risotto. But the other issue is that I've never purchased mushrooms more wild than the cremini. So I guess any help on buying dry (if found, fresh) wild mushrooms. That's it... help please.
