Hello all - I'm hosting a dinner party this Saturday (the 5th) and I want to make a lovely oven-braised rice from Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking - I have a question for experienced cooks about how to make a LOT....
The recipe calls for 1.5 cups of rice, 3 cups of boiling liquid, and 1/4 cup onion sauteed in 4tb of butter. The rice is brought to the simmer on the stovetop, and then is placed in a 375 degree oven (turned down to 350) for about 18 minutes. This serves about 4-5 people.
MY QUESTION: If I want to TRIPLE this recipe (my party has 15 guests), and I have a pot big enough, is it just ok to triple all of the above ingredients (rice/liquid, etc. ?). After that, how much time should I allow for cooking once it's in the oven? Any ideas on how long it would take? This would be with about 4.5 cups of rice...
