Q: How far in advance can I make baked risotto? I have a potluck on Saturday night and was thinking of bringing one, and then realized I have to be there early to set up!

Can I make it a few hours in advance and then warm it up there or will it be gummy? Thank you!

Editor: Risotto is one of those tricky dishes to prepare in advance, but it can definitely be done. One of our recipes for baked risotto advises undercooking the risotto by a little bit and then storing it in the refrigerator. Reheat it with any quick-cooking vegetables and more stock on the stovetop at the last minute.

Readers, any tips on how far in advance baked risotto can be made?
