Only the finest quality superfino rice imported from Italy.
Italian Arborio and Carnaroli superfino rice are staples of Italian and Mediterranean cooking, famous for their usage in the dish risotto. Only Arborio and Carnaroli rice have the high starch content which gives it the characteristic creaminess required for risotto. Carnaroli is a slightly shorter grain of rice, and slightly firmer than Arborio – often preferred by chefs for its firmness and creaminess. Risotto is made with a variety of recipes and additional ingredients including porcini mushrooms, meats, peas, saffron, and sundried tomato. Italissima imports only the finest quality Italian Arborio and Carnaroli superfino rice.
