Acquerello Carnaroli Rice
Dear friend of Gourmet Delights,
"Acquerello is the Rolls Royce of rice." - Alain Ducasse
"Acquerello is one of the very last authentic products." - Frédy Girardet
Acquerello is the rice grown, aged, whitened and packed in Italy on the Colombara farm by the Rondolino family. It is the ultimate rice because first the unhusked rough rice is aged to perfection for at least one year, then is whitened slowly using an exclusive method, and finally restored with its most precious element the embryo or germ. The re-enrichment of the refined rice with its germ restores the most valuable nutrients of brown rice.
Known as the "king" or the "caviar" of Italian rices, Carnaroli is the preferred risotto rice in most regions of Italy. Acquerello Carnaroli rice is classified as "Extra rice" for its quality. In order to preserve its characteristics perfectly, Acquerello rice is vacuum sealed in unique enameled tins.
Its grains stay perfectly intact, fully consistent, tastier and not sticky; they absorb flavors exceptionally well, do not bind together and do not lose starch, proteins or vitamins. Simply by using Acquerello Carnaroli rice your risotto will always be outstanding.
Acquerello is used in the finest restaurants around the world:
The French Laundry, USA (Thomas Keller)
Osteria Francescana, Italy (Massimo Bottura)
Troisgros, France (Michael Troisgros)
The Fat Duck, England (Heston Blumenthal)
