ABOUT

Risotto is a marvelous culinary expression of Italy, combining the wholesomeness of rice with quality flavorings and spices. The secret to excellent risotto lies with Arborio, a high-starch, short-grain rice that absorbs cooking liquids to achieve a creamy overall texture. Enjoy the complex, sophisticated taste of seasonal risotto in the time it takes to cook simple pasta or rice with our Butternut Squash Risotto.
