Sant' Andrea Rice
Sant'Andrea rice is a type of rice with very ancient origins. This rice is characterised by its medium grain, which keeps its shape during cooking and has the ability to perfectly absorb the seasonings. Sant'Andrea rice is particularly suitable for preparing risottos, rice salads and for seasoning your favourite sauces. It also has a delicate flavour and a creamy texture that make it ideal for a wide range of culinary recipes.
S.Andrea rice is one of the most representative rice products of Baraggia, the Piedmontese area between the provinces of Biella and Vercelli. Its name comes from the abbey of the same name in Vercelli, where one of the typical dishes made with this rice originated: panissa, a typical Piedmontese risotto made with rice, sausage and beans.
With its conical grains, smaller than those of traditional risotto rice, this prized variety has an excellent capacity for absorbing spices and releases a considerable amount of starch when cooked, making it ideal for creamy risottos. Its delicate flavour also makes it ideal for desserts.
