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.
This rice is one of the most widely used in Italy thanks to its characteristics of shape and substance. The grains are pleasantly large and visually appealing. This rice is particularly suited for both creamy risottos and "timballi" (oven-baked dishes) and "supplì" (rice croquettes).
When preparing a risotto, after removing the onion, let the the oil and butter reduce, add the rice and stir with a wooden spoon, so the rice does not come into contact with cold or sharp surfaces. Only when the rice has been toasted to perfection, i.e. it has absorbed all the condiment and has become shiny and transparent, can the other ingredients, called for in the recipe, be added.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
