Italian Rice Rissotto with Asparagus Cascina Belvedere - Risotto Aspanagi 8.8oz (250g)


  • Also known as being the king of rices, grown mainly in the Piedmont region of Italy. Canaroli differs from Arborio for a slightly larger shape and higher content of starch. Amongst Italian rices it has the greatest amount of amylose, a substance that contributes to make the grain compact. For this reason, it boasts special gastronomic attitudes with an excellent balance between good absorption capacity and little starch loss so that there is no danger of overcooking. This makes it an excellent rice variety, particularly appreciated by great chefs for the ability of its grains to stay hard at the core and to stay perfect and well separated.

    Asparagus is a very appreciated vegetable in Italy, they have a unique flavor and are only available in spring and autumn.
