Zaccaria Risotto Kits


Risotto kits  from the Baraggia of Biella, Italy.

Father and son toil long days in the 500 plus acres of rice fields of Biella that produce some of the world’s finest rice for risotto dishes. The mighty Alps to the north deliver fresh spring water through irrigated channels that create an intricate network of gridded rice fields. The Zaccaria family has been harvesting rice for over 150 years, and uses minimal chemicals in the process, preferring the arduous task of weeding by hand to eliminate weeds. It processes its own harvests on site.

These pre-made risotto kits are perfect for the easy meal that spoils you with rich tastes from northern Italy, the perfect gift for both the gourmand and simple cooker.  Simply heat oil or butter and toast the risotto for a minute before adding white wine and water.  Each kit serves 3.
