Carnaroli Rice is plump, medium-grain white rice, considered one of the world's most premium varieties. We source exceptional grains of this high starch rice for elegant preparations of our Carnaroli Rice.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat in a 1-quart saucepan. Add 1/2 cup minced onion and stir for 1 or 2 minutes until softened. Add 1 cup Italian Carnaroli Rice and stir to toast for 2 minutes. Sprinkle in 1 teaspoon salt. Add 1/2 cup white wine and stir until evaporated. Heat 4 cups stock or water to a simmer (you may not use it all). Add stock a little at a time while stirring almost constantly, adding more as it is absorbed. When rice is just done remove from heat and stir in diced cold butter and finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese to taste.
