    Product Info

    Shorter and fatter than carnaroli and Arborio rice, vialone nano rice is regarded by many Italians to be the finest risotto rice. It absorbs liquids better, and releases more starch than any other risotto rice, creating a very smooth, creamy risotto that is less sticky, so it flows better on the plate. It is particularly prized in Veneto (the region including Venice) style seafood risottos.

    Grown in Italy, this vialone nano is top quality, consisting of carefully selected whole (unchipped) grains of rice. Their brilliant white color is the result of being expertly polished (pearled) rather than any sort of chemical bleaching. This process also leaves more of the grains’ natural starch content intact for an even creamier risotto.

    Recipes & Tips
    Vialone nano rice can be used to make any type of risotto, but its smooth texture works particularly well in seafood risottos. Classic risotto pairings include fine seafood, parmigiano reggiano cheese, fresh truffles and truffle oil.

    Try using the risotto method with other liquids (often milk) sugar and dessert flavors (like vanilla beans) to turn vialone nano rice into fabulous rice pudding!
