Acquerello Carnaroli Risotto Rice, 2.5kg
This one-year aged organic rice is produced in northern Italy using artisanal methods. Carnaroli is a medium-grained rice with a high starch content that helps the grains hold their shape, doesn’t become sticky and is more resistant to overcooking than the well-known Arborio.
A family-owned company, Acquerello has been in production since 1935 promoting environmentally friendly agriculture and using paddy fields that support the local ecosystem. It has become the go-to risotto rice for many top chefs, loved for its particularly flavoursome grains and fantastic texture. Its uses don’t end at risotto though, try cooking in a creamy rice pudding or using for a rice salad.
Origin: Piedmont, Italy
