After making Risotto I can add something else to my list. You can not substitute vinegar for wine. My sister tasted my Risotto and said that my texture was pretty good for a first attempt, and gave me a polite smile about my faux pas with the vinegar.
I am not sure I will be making Risotto again, at least not anytime soon. It is very time intensive. Gradually stirring in chicken stock to rice is not my idea of a great time, especially when DS#2 is tugging on your apron the entire process, and the result is rice... bad rice in my case. For the time being I think I will stick to my rice cooker. The most time intensive part of that is washing it! But for those of you who would like to try making Risotto here are some recipes.
How to Make Risotto
Best of luck in your Risotto pursuits, let me know how it works for you.
