Arborio rice is an Italian medium-grain rice. It is named after the town of Arborio, in the Po Valley, which is situated in the main region of Piedmont in Italy.
When cooked, the rounded grains are firm, creamy, and chewy compared to other varieties of rice, due to their higher amylopectin starch content.
It has a starchy taste and blends well with other flavours.
Arborio rice is often used to make Risotto.
