De Cecco Semola di Grano Duro Rimacinata Integrale is obtained by selecting the best durum wheat skilfully ground in our mill.
During milling, the special process used by De Cecco preserves the natural fibre content of our wheat, of the precious "wheat germ" and the authentic taste of the fresh ingredient.
This is why it is particularly suited for making home-made whole wheat bread and preparing, either by hand or with an automatic pasta machine, excellent fettuccine, maccheroni alla chitarra, gnocchi and any other type of pasta with or without eggs.
Ground whole wheat semolina is an excellent alternative to the classic ground semolina and is naturally rich in fibre.
Available in 1 Kg packs.
This rice is now used widely in the north east of Italy to prepare typical dishes due to the age-old culinary traditions of the Veneto and Mantua regions. Indeed, it brings out the best in the traditional flavours of those regions, making the simple ingredients that typify these areas, such as pumpkin, snails and game, into the ideal seasoning for a wide variety of risottos. The rounded grains of Vialone Nano mean that this rice is excellent for absorbing seasoning and produces an enviable yield when cooked which is why it can be used in numerous ways and combinations. Particularly suited for risottos.
For making risottos, use of a mild flavoured olive oil is recommended so it does not mask the very delicate flavour of the rice. The best solution is a combination of oil and butter because the oil raises the so-called "smoke point" of the butter and stops the small quantity of whey in the butter from burning.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
