Carnaroli Rice in Glass – 8 lbs
Often called the” king of Italian rice,” Carnaroli is the preferred variety of rice for making risotto, with a higher starch content and firmer texture than the arborio you can find at the grocery store. Grown in Novara, in the Piedmont, on an estate that’s produced rice since the 1600s, this ultra-premium Carnaroli is aged for a year before it’s released. That aging, a technique used by rice farmers since ancient times, allows the rice to absorb more water as it sits, making the grains bigger, firmer, and more flavorful. The result? An ultra-creamy, restaurant-quality risotto that’s almost impossible to overcook.
