Risotto, with Porcini Mushrooms

Made with Italian arborio rice. Imported. Italy is Europe’s largest producer of rice. The wetlands and cool temperatures of the Lombardi region harbor the ideal conditions for lush rice fields. Resourceful Italians combined rice with the many other items common to their area and developed a dish they lay claim to. It is known as risotto. Rich, creamy risotto is one of Northern Italy’s gastronomic delights. The key ingredient in authentic risotto is the short, thick grained rice known as arborio. This rice is the perfect grain for risotto because its texture and cooking properties allow it to retain firmness throughout preparation. Risotto should always be prepared al dente which means tender yet firm to the bite. Alessi risotto Con Funghi Porcini offers a most unique blend of flavor. Funghi Porcini are a particular type of mushroom found throughout the woodlands of Italy beneath pine trees. They are known for their woodsy, aromatic scent and are a wonderful addition to this Italian favorite. This dish is a wonderful accompaniment to most grilled meats, especially lamb.
