So, what is italian rice?

Italian rice, also known as Arborio rice, is a short-grain rice variety that originated in the Po Valley region of Italy. It is a staple ingredient in Italian cuisine, particularly in the popular dish risotto. The grains of Italian rice are plump and creamy, with a slightly nutty flavor and a firm texture that holds up well in cooking. The high starch content of Italian rice makes it perfect for absorbing flavors and liquids, creating a rich, creamy texture in dishes. This versatile ingredient can be used in a variety of dishes, from savory risottos to sweet rice pudding.
