De Cecco Semolino in 250 g packs is a product that meets all the criteria for the quality, care and attention that De Cecco dedicates to its products. It is made only from the very core of the wheat, ground in our mill and is a true distillate, whose extraction occurs during the first steps of the milling cycle. It has many uses and is ideal in hot soups and for preparing gnocchi and home-made pasta.
It is the best kind of rice to use in liquid recipes, so for broths, rice and vegetable soups, and vegetable minestrone with rice. Its characteristic versatility in the kitchen makes it perfect both for simple dishes such as boiled rice and white rice with butter, and for sophisticated dishes such as salads and oven-baked dishes.
For an elegant presentation of a rice broth, the broth must be clear and not made cloudy by the starch in the rice. To achieve this, the rice is boiled in water, drained a minute before it is completely cooked and then tipped straight into the boiling broth.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
