Product: Black Venus Medium Grain Italian Rice by Gli Aironi
Price: View !!!
Gli Aironi's Black Venus Italian Rice is grown in Risaie Vercellesi, a region considered by many to be ideal for the production of Italian rice. The Perinotti family has lived and harvested rice in this region for five generations.
Their method of stone craft husking guarantees a light shelling of the grain, thus keeping the nutrients intact on the external part, which is essential to the texture and taste of rice after it is cooked. This variety of wholemeal rice, which is considered "the nobleman's rice", is rich in protein and minerals.
Black Venus Medium Grain Italian Rice is characterized by its natural ebony color and the smell of bread that it emits during cooking. Black Venus Rice is best eaten dressed with oil or butter and parmigiano and its hearty shape will hold up when reheated or added to soups. Its rich color makes a great contrast when served with mixed vegetables.
Each box contains 2.2 pounds of vacuum packed Gli Aironi Black Venus (Wholemeal) Medium Grain Italian Rice from Italy.
