  1. Massi, Great photos. I have heard that grappa has amazing depth of flavor. I love anything with a saffron brew, as well – it lends beautiful color and rich flavor. Here, we call the rice that you used “arborio,” but I think it is the same. Best, Shanna

    • Thank you Shanna for the intresting question,
      No is not the same,the difference is :
      Carnaroli is traditionally used for making risotto, differing from the more common arborio rice due to its higher starch content and firmer texture, as well as having a longer grain.
      Carnaroli rice keeps its shape better than other forms of rice during the slow cooking required for making risotto due to higher quantities of amylose present within. It is often described as being “the king of rices”.
      Arborio Riso is more used in Italy to make a suppli ,or Arancini or cake of risotto.
      you give a idea,next time I will go to make a nice Timballo with riso Arborio:)
      When you r next dish?

      • Hi, Massi. Your response is so enlightening. Thank you. This makes perfect sense. I will try to order carnaroli rice for my next risotto dish. It seems like the idea grain. I may post a special dish from my time in Spain this week. I lived with an elderly woman who I became incredibly close to, and she taught me the preparation. 🙂 Food is memory, right? Have a lovely night! – Shann

  2. Al solo vedere le splendide foto che visualizzano passo passo la ricetta io già ho un gran languorino. Tu mi stai uccidendo caro Massi, eh si 😆 …. oggi poi ho praticamente digiunato e ora il mio stomaco brontola come una vecchia locomotiva e inoltre il riso mi piace in tutte le maniere 🙂
    Un salutone e buona serata, Pat
