From a nutritional point of view, Acquerello is totally complete because, unlike any other white rice, it contains more proteins, minerals, vitamins and all the other micro-elements within the germ otherwise present only in brown rice.

Some Risotto Recipes:

Some Risotto Ideas and Suggestions:

  • Add saffron & vanilla bean seeds to your champagne risotto to really add extra flavor and interest.
    • For champagne risotto simply substitute champagne for 1/2 the broth.
  • Suggestions for other flavors and additions:
    • asparagus in the spring
    • shrimp and/or sundried tomatoes in the summer
    • wild mushrooms and/or truffles/truffle oil in the fall
    • Italian sausage in the winter.
    • Risotto Stuffed Squash Blossoms:
      • make a small batch of risotto
      • allow risotto to cool until just set
      • using a butter knife gently fill the squash blossoms
      • close the squash blossom petals around the opening
      • fill a cast iron pan with 1/4" oil, turn heat to medium
      • lightly brown the squash blossoms, turning once
      • NOTE you can also lightly bread them with panko crumbs or breadcrumbs with a little egg to help the crumbs adhere.

    Acquerello represents the superior form of white rice belonging to the Japonica subspecies. It combines the essential nutritional values of brown rice with the cooking characteristics of superior white rice, absorbing cooking liquids very well without being sticky.

First, it's easy. Scroll down the menu on the left of the website and decide if you are ready for a delight from Asia, France or any other yummy country. I went directly to Italy looking for a few things I can't find anywhere else: white truffle based products and the king of risotto rice. Olive oil with white truffle can transform your experience, quickly. Put a few drops on sunny side up and you get a five stars experience. Same with butter.If you love risotto you must know CARNAROLI. Get it!

Aged Acquerello Rice07/11/2013
By Marcella Hazan
Acquerello's vacuum-packed seven-year old Carnaroli rice is my first and only choice for risotto. Its texture and fragrance are peerless. I hoard it because I might not make risotto if I were to run out of it. I rarely endorse a product, but I felt it my duty to bring this one to the attention of any cook with a good hand at making risotto. Marcella

I thought I made fantastic risotto. Then I tried my risotto recipe with this aged Carnaroli rice. WOW WOW WOW. The flavor, the delicacy..... perfection. I get complements all the time. This rice, using my same recipe, really "kicked it up a notch" and everyone noticed. Thank you.... thank you, for finding this for us!!!! A true culinary gem :)

Ladies,hi i'm Maria Nava Rondolino and today really by chance,i got the opportunity the see your review. i'd like to thank you generously also on behalf of my husband,Piero the Acquerello's"author".Did you know that Acquerello means watercolour,obviously because of our image depicting the fields flooded during spring time,but mainly because any dish,mainly the once you were used to cook for years,just by shifting to Acquerello,will end up amazingly different.Please continue to experiment ..

Unbelieveably delicious rice12/12/2013

I admit I was skeptical paying a premium for rice. I mean, its rice right? It most assuredly is not just rice! I've made paella and everyday rice (I use it for lunches at work) with this and I think the best part is the richness of flavor. And each grain is separate from the other. So creamy good. Every time I use it I am reminded of how special and unique it really is.
