Price £3.90

Description

Weight: 1kg

Arborio rice takes its name from a village in the countryside near Vercelli in northern Italy, one of the best rice growing areas in the world.

This short, fat and slightly oval shaped rice is perfect for risotto thanks to its high starch content. Cooking releases this starch and gives any risotto its lovely creamy consistency.

Like pasta, Arborio rice should prepared al dente, cooking time is 15 minutes and it should be slightly firm to the bite.

Arborio rice

 

Our producer - Tenuta Margherita

Tenuta Margherita in Northern Italy has been producing the best varieties of Italian rice since 1904. Covering an area of 250 hectares in the Desana countryside near Vercelli, one of the most important rice growing areas in Italy, this family business takes care of the whole production process, from cultivation in the paddy field to rice drying and processing with bleaching stones in the company rice mill up to careful packing.

The transformation of paddy rice into white rice, using conical bleaching stones, is a slow and delicate process and still today it is considered the best because grains preserve their amber colour as well as their nutritional value and remain intact and uniform. All the green, broken or imperfect grains are carefully eliminated to obtain very high quality rice with an intense flavour and great consistency.
