Chicche are a tasty alternative to the classic Gnocchi, a typical, traditional Italian dish. They were created from the original recipe that combines selected potatoes and soft flour, but the difference is they only take 2 minutes to cook. Their small, round shape combined with the soft consistency of their dough make them ideal for delicate condiments such as shrimp and courgettes or vegetable sauces, but also for ones with a more distinct flavour like seafood sauces.
Roma rice has distinctive, large, rounded grains. Particularly suited for creamy risottos and oven-baked dishes.
When making a risotto, the rice should be only stirred occasionally and delicately so that the starch is released gently, creating a creamy consistency which is the common feature of the best risottos. The risotto can be left unattended almost to the end of cooking only if a tin-plated copper pan is used which spreads the heat evenly both on the bottom and the sides.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
