The perfect rice for risotto.  Made in Italy.

You could in fact eat a different risotto recipe every day of the year, and not run out of flavour choices. A true Italian risotto should be creamy, yet not runny, cooked to a consistency Italians call all’onda, which translates as “with waves”.

Basic Risotto Cooking Tips:

  • Never wash the rice. The starch is important to keeping the rice creamy.
  • Use only hot broth when cooking your risotto. Adding cool broth will simply prolong the cooking time.
  • Prepare all the ingredients in advance, and place in easy reach in the order they will be used. You cannot stop stirring to chop ingredients as they are needed.
  • To determine when you should add more liquid, lightly draw your wooden spoon across the bottom of your pot. You should be able to create a space as you draw your spoon across the bottom.
  • Add your liquid in 1/4 cup intervals, only adding more once it has been completely absorbed.
  • Near the end of the cooking time, taste the rice frequently, as the cooking time can vary a few minutes each time you cook it.
  • If you have run out of hot broth and your risotto seems to require a little more cooking time, add a little hot water instead.
