De Cecco's Durum Wheat Flour in 1 kg bags is a flour that has a finer grain size compared to De Cecco's Durum Wheat Semolina and is obtained from a selection of the finest durum wheat, skilfully ground in our mill. It is a source of proteins and fibre and easy to use in the kitchen and ideal for producing both fragrant, home-made bread and an excellent dough for delicious home-made pasta.
It is the best kind of rice to use in liquid recipes, so for broths, rice and vegetable soups, and vegetable minestrone with rice. Its characteristic versatility in the kitchen makes it perfect both for simple dishes such as boiled rice and white rice with butter, and for sophisticated dishes such as salads and oven-baked dishes.
For an elegant presentation of a rice broth, the broth must be clear and not made cloudy by the starch in the rice. To achieve this, the rice is boiled in water, drained a minute before it is completely cooked and then tipped straight into the boiling broth.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
