Arborio rice is named after the town in Italy where it was originally cultivated. 

The rice has short, fat and slightly oval-shaped kernels with a pearly white exterior. This makes it the perfect basis for an authentic Italian risotto, and is the classic choice of rice to create this dish. 

Why Should I Get Arborio Rice ?

When cooked just right, the grain has a delicious, creamy exterior and firm centre. Apart from risotto, it can also be used to make sweet pudding rice, or as an alternative to Spanish rice in Paella.

Although it is starchier than traditional long-grain white rice, the extra starch does not mean it's higher in carbs. It is also high in protein as well as a good source of vitamin A and C. In fact, a cup of arborio rice contains around 45% of your daily requirement of essential nutrients.

Instructions For Use: 

To Cook: Allow 75g of rice per person. Preparation Time: 15 minutes, cooking time 30 minutes. In a pan, fry some butter with a portion of rice for 2-3 minutes, then keep adding a small amount of stock at a time until absorbed. Make sure to stir frequently. Season to taste.
