Widely known as the foundation for Italian risotto, Arborio rice is short, fat and pearly. It's high starch content, which is released during cooking, gives it that classic creamy texture. You can use other rices for risotto, but for a result that best reflects this most Italian of dishes, Arborio rice is the choice. Isola's Arborio rice is the best available in Italy and you will find that it sets itself apart from all the other arborios now available on supermarket shelves in the United States.
