Sant'Andrea PDO Rice Baraggia - Guerrini
Baraggia Rice of Biella and Vercelli Provences
Package of 1 Kg
The S. Andrea Rice of Baraggia is undoubtedly the most typical rice PDO Baraggia Biella and Vercelli. Until a few years ago it had grown by 85% only in Baraggia and then was one of rices that gave the paternity to the Protected Designation of Origin. A less known that the other rice Carnaroli and Arborio, but because of its excellent price-quality ratio is a rice which is much appreciated.
It has features like a medium grain (neither big not small), with a lot of starch, therefore suitable for creamy risotto (being careful to cooking), but even more is a rice soup, rice balls, rice cakes, in short, for all those recipes in which the rice must "bind" a lot.
Soups, pies, rice cakes, sweets, arancini.
