Product Description

Imported. Made with Italian Arborio rice. Italy is Europe's largest producer of rice. The wetlands and cool temperatures of the Lombardi region harbor the ideal conditions for lush rice fields. Resourceful Italians combined rice with the many other items common to their area and developed a dish they lay claim to. It is known as risotto. Rich, creamy risotto is one of Northern Italy's gastronomic delights. The key ingredient in authentic risotto is the short, thick grained rice known as Arborio. This rice is the perfect grain for risotto because its texture and cooking properties allow it to retain firmness throughout preparation. Risotto should always be prepared al dente which means tender yet firm to the bite. Alessi Risotto con Funghi Porcini offers a most unique blend of flavor. Funghi Porcini are a particular type of mushroom found throughout the woodlands of Italy beneath pine trees. They are known for their woodsy, aromatic scent and are a wonderful addition to this Italian favorite. This dish is a wonderful accompaniment to most grilled meats, especially lamb.

An Italian acquaintance (from Milan) swears by this stuff. Dead simple to make and pretty close to the "real" thing. Heresy to serious cooks, but when the clock is running and two adolescent boys are HUNGRY. 'Nuff said. Clearly, the additional ingredients - preservatives, et al. - give one pause - and should - but all in, it's probably not what is going to kill you or me. Good stuff from a package.

It is a bit salty but I add some fresh mushrooms to it and that seems to solve the problem.Not over salted but from a person who generally does not salt their food I did notice the salt.This is really very good risotto even if it comes from a box! I love it.

I am a mushroom lover and I think risotto is one of the best ways to enjoy them. Though this is a instant type product, it delivers on taste and creamy texture.

Have tried this -purchased from the butcher's - and LOVE it! My son couldn't stop with the second helpings. That's when you know it's good, when they keep scooping more. Personally I like the saltiness.

I don;t always feel like cooking risotto for just myself or my wife and I. This alessi Risotto cooks in 18 minutes pretty much unattended for most of that time at very low heat. It takes maybe 3 or 4 minutes before that to prepare the cooking so it's a quick and very tasty alternative.

The only complaint I have is that it is lighter on the mushrooms than its competitors. However, that's easily fixed by using a little bit of extra dried porcini mushroom (or the fresh kind if you are that lucky). I also like a touch of truffle oil to give it a bit more gamey flavor.

the quality of the rice is very good and it almost tastes like my own freshly made risotto con porcini. Almost.

The size is good for 3 people, but not 4 (and these need to be people that do not "supersize" their fast food. Normal people) but as a side dish it can certainly serve 4.
