Product Description

Long Grain Rice for Risotto
Numero Uno in Italia

Carnaroli - The King of Italian Rices and the preferred choice of the top risotto chefs. An exceptionally creamy, firm and balanced consistency is guaranteed every time. Risotto is a traditional rice meal from the North of Italy.

The Italians love it because:
- It is creamy and velvety.
- The rice retains some bite, "al dente".
- It is versatile - you can easily create your own recipe for every occasion.

The Po valley became the renowned region it is today, because of the vision of a great Piedmontese statesman - Camillo Benso di Cavour.
In 1855 he supervised the construction of thousands of miles of canals, thus irrigating one of the most fertile plains in Europe with water from the Alps. Using the same systems, Italian farmers, selected by Riso Gallo, continue to produce rice with the same unique characteristics to provide you with a creamy and velvety wonderful risotto.

To my mind carnaroli is the nicest risotto rice, and this is by far the best make. Highly recommended.

Perfect Risotto

As an incompetent cook that ought to take out insurance before serving up and who has made many a dire risotto before, this rice and Delia's recipe for baked risotto Carbonara made restaurant, a good restaurant, quality risotto. Superb. Very creamy, very delicious, I was actually asked if I had made it myself from scratch, suspiciously good, someone else had to have had a hand in it, it was concluded.

Makes a lovely creamy risotto!

I usually buy waitrose Arborio rice, but it hasn't been in stock for ages so when my delivery substituted this instead I thought I'd give it a go. Result, yummy risotto and no one could tell the difference! Have bought a few times now and always been happy with how it cooks. Definately recommend.
