Bring home a bit of Italy with Olea Europaea’s range of high quality authentic Italian Riso (Rice). With a selection of Arborio Riso, Carnaroli Riso, Vialone Nano Riso and Riso Venere, choose the ideal flavor and texture to complement your recipes. With its short pearly grains and the ability to absorb flavours extremely well, Arborio Riso is the perfect candidate for a classic creamy risotto and even works great in rice puddings and cakes. Hailed as the king of Italian rice, Riso Carnaroli has a longer grain, firmer texture and higher starch content. This allows it to retain its shape during the slow cooking process, whilst still producing tremendously creamy risotto. Riso Vialone Nano grains are short and plump, with the ability to take more robust flavours with flair. This makes it an excellent ingredient in seafood risotto, timbales, arancini and soups like minestrone. Riso Venere (Italian black rice) is a medium grain rice with a blackish-purple tone and buttery rich flavor with a sweet finish. It works well with fragrant herbs like rosemary and thyme, and intense flavours of truffles, sundried tomatoes and parmesan. Enjoy its intoxicating aroma in both sweet and savory dishes including salads, quiches, pies and rice bowls.
