If you are not going to serve the risotto on the day that you make the product that's not an issue. Just take it out of the pan that it was cooked in and pour it out onto a pan that is shallow and has a large surface area so you can spread the risotto out to cool quickly.

Just don't forget to add the cream, cheese, and remainder of the ingredients back into the risotto when you go to use the item again for your next gathering.
****As for quick instructions for re-heating, this product backup is really easy. In your pot make up some of the same broth you used for the risotto. Make up like 1 quart and pour 1/2 the amount into the pot and heat the broth up and pour the risotto on top. Turn your heat to med-low so it will slowly steam the risotto up and keep it moist at the same time. If you need more liquid you can add more in.
This item can be used on a buffet, can be used as a side dish offering on menus. It makes great fried appetizers.
