The good news is that like you, not everyone likes wild rice. So many of your guests will take just a small serving or none, so a little will go a long way.

Once cooked, you could toss with raspberry vinaigrette, dried cranberries and sliced scallion. That eliminates having to reheat it.

Good luck.

Well, you could always have some lutefisk pate on the side!

I was born in MPls and lived there as a kid and thought wild rice was the bomb. Thought every kid ate herring, wild rice and braunschweiger. Little did I know...,,

The rice will be served as a side to chicken, so I will have to keep it warm, and since we are serving everybody are going tohave to have it on the plate. On one hand it is waist, on the other, it is a formal dinner and to have people walkt to the bufet table is just not going to be appropriate.

Charlie,

You need to make sure that the rice mixture is held above 140 degrees.

Rice can harbor the bacillus bacteria and rice improperly held at lower temps can make people sick. Its happened to me ....

Rice as the matter of fact is worse than raw eggs.

Don't worry. It will be cooked in advanced and warmed up right before serving.
