With its large, rounded grains, Roma rice is a very popular ingredient due to an extreme versatility that makes it suitable for almost all dishes. With its high starch content, it creates soft and creamy risottos, and is perfect for timbales and rice patties. It is also the ideal rice for delicious ‘arancini’ (fried rice balls).
Ribe rice is one of the most versatile varieties.
It has medium-sized grains, medium/long and rounded, with a crystalline and compact structure that maintains its firmness throughout cooking. This makes it ideal for liquid-based recipes, such as vegetable rice soups and broths.
Historical sources report that Ribe rice originated after the Second World War, from the crossing of Vialone and Lady Wright, a species imported from the United States in 1925.
