This was my first time making Risotto, so I was a bit nervous about the whole thing, as Risotto has kind of this air of "mystique" around it (I blame Gordon Ramsay and Hell's Kitchen for all of my fears. "YOU CAN'T EVEN COOK A #$(&*ING RISOTTO!!!"). The recipe was spot on, and turned out fantastic! When I taste tested it after putting it all together, I was just shocked at how good it was (and really how easy it was to put together). i'm not sure how much mushroom I put in there. I figured the 2lbs of mushrrom were a bit overkill, so I just used by my definition "a lot". and it turned out really well. This recipe can be customized a ton. I'm really excited to try making different variations of it now :). Will definently start adding a bit of garic to the shallots when starting off the risotto. As stated, and as those of you who are going to try it already understand: You need to be focused on the risotto. Not the book you're reading, or the news report that's on...stay focused on the dish. Having another set of hands around will help.
