Acquerello Carnaroli Aged Risotto Rice, 5.5 pound
Acquerello Carnaroli is the best rice to use for risotto. Acquerello is the best brand, and carnaroli is better than commonly used Arborio rice. Carnaroli has a sweeter flavor, al dente texture, and very pure flavor. Make it with just water so not to compromise the flavor of the risotto ingredients. Just add truffles, hot butter, and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano and you will be in heaven.
