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.
The De Cecco Semola Rimacinata di Grano Duro, taken from the selection of our best durum wheat skilfully ground in our mill, is particularly suited to making fragrant home-made bread and to preparing, either by hand or with an automatic pasta machine, excellent fettuccine, maccheroni alla chitarra, gnocchi, lasagna for baked dishes, cannelloni, and any other type of pasta with or without eggs.
