Arborio rice is short grain rice from Italy. It gets its name from the town of Arborio in the Po Valley in Northern Italy where it is grown. Arborio rice is the classic rice for risotto - creamy yet still having a "bite". Although this pear-shaped grain requires a little more attention than carnaroli or vialone nano rices, its texture does lend itself well to risottos, minestrone soup, and is absolutely perfect for rice puddings. Perfect for rice balls or side dishes with creamy mushrooms peas and pancetta.
