This popular rice Imported from Northern Italy is used mainly to make risotto. The higher than normal amount of soluble starch released during
cooking, makes Arborio rice the ideal choice for Risotto. Arborio rice is used when a creamy consistency is needed in a recipe such as risotto, soup, or rice puddings. This variety of rice is easy to prepare and takes about 20 to 30 minutes to cook.


  Cooking Risotto is about slowly developing the multiple layers of flavors released by all ingredients. It usually begins with gently sautéing finely chopped shallots in extra virgin olive oil without browning them. Mix in the rice, and stir for two to three minutes until it begins to pearl up. Now the rice is ready to receive the liquid of your choice. (Wine and/or stock made from fish, chicken, beef, or vegetable). After 20 minutes, when rice is tender, add in remaining flavors according to your recipe. Vegetables, butter, herb, and grated Parmesan are usually mixed in when the rice hasn’t yet absorb all the stock.  

Arborio rice enriched with niacin, iron (ferric orthophosphate), thiamine (thiamine mononitrate).
