How to Cook Risotto: Arborio Rice


In this video series, Giuliana demonstrates how to make the classic dish of northern Italy, the risotto. Risotto, which often replaces pasta in the northern Italian provinces, is made with Arborio rice, a short grain, starchy rice from the Po River valley. Arborio releases its starches slowly during cooking, a key to the creamy texture that characterizes a good risotto. In the next segment, Giuliana gives us some basic tips and tricks to help your risotto turn out well. Arborio rice is available from the pantry at DeLallo.
