Acquerello: Heston Blumental's Favourite Rice

Acquerello grow, produce and pack superfine carnaroli risotto rice on their family estate in Piedmont. It is not only the rice variety that is special. Acquerello rice is the only white rice in the world to be enriched with its nutrient-rich germ – reintroduced after hulling – giving it a nutritional profile closer to brown rice. The rice is also aged for up to three years.

This results in a risotto rice that is rich in vitamins, can absorb more liquid during cooking, whilst retaining its structure. The grains will not stick together.
