Carnaroli is one of the finest types of rice you can buy. It is ideal for making sophisticated dishes and regional specialities. Its large grains and ability to mix in with and enhance different flavours and foods ensures perfect risottos, oven-baked dishes and salads. Its renowned ability to keep its shape during cooking makes it extremely versatile and an excellent rice for important occasions.
When making a risotto, salt should not be added directly. The salt should, however, be added in moderation through the liquid used for cooking so that the rice absorbs it slowly and uniformly.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
Gnocchi is a typical dish in the tradition of Italian cooking that in different regions may differ in the shape and size of the dough. De Cecco offers you a tasty product originating from the classic recipe that combines selected potatoes and wheat flour. The difference is they only take 2 minutes to cook. Their various shapes are designed to make them the perfect choice for preparing attractive dishes every day; from recipes with meat sauce or pesto alla genovese, to more original and imaginative ones based on velvety cheese sauces or simpler ones with melted butter, sage and grated parmesan. The 500g line consists of Gnocchi di patate, Chicche and Tronchetti.
