You want to make risotto? First, you need the right rice. Carnaroli Rice has been nicknamed the “caviar of rice” and is highly prized by chefs the world over for its bold white kernel, uniform starch release and deliciously creamy and toothsome texture. A plump, short grain with starch that takes a shorter time to gelatinize, reducing cooking time to approximately 15 minutes. Superb as appetizer, main dish or accompaniment when made with stock. Great in sweet Italian rice puddings with spices and dried fruits.
