Carnaroli RiceSKU: 20142001207
Carnaroli rice is a type of short-grain Italian rice sometimes used in risotto dishes. While arborio rice is the best known type of rice used in risotto, particularly in the United States, many cooks prefer carnaroli. Carnaroli rice, like arborio, contains more starch than other rice varieties. However, it retains liquid and holds its shape better than arborio rice and has a larger grain, making for a more textured dish. Use it in all your risotto and paella dishes. It also makes a mean rice pudding. Comes in a 1 pound package.
