Calasparra Rice - 1 kg (2.2 lb)

Calasparra Rice is different than other rices. It's a uniquely Spanish rice, a rice with a long history, like the country itself. Calasparra rice is the result of a long, slow maturation process which produces a rice that is far superior for paella and other traditional Spanish rice dishes. This maturation process results in a very dry rice grain, enabling it to absorb far more of the flavorful broth and spices than other short grain rices.  It is precisely these properties that make this rice the best suited for paella and other traditional Spanish dishes.


Unlike most other Mediterranean rices, Calsaparra rice is grown in the high mountains of Spain's Murcia province, where it is irrigated by pure, cold mountain waters. Calasparra rice is grown free from pesticides and herbicides and is processed without the use of any chemicals.


For the finest, authentic Spanish dishes, use an authentic Spanish rice - use Calasparra rice. You'll notice the difference.

Cauliflower Risotto with Saffron
Risotto, the comfort food that can be elevated to gourmet standard with the addition of special ingredients! The naturally creamy texture of a risotto is the result of slow, patient cooking - adding the liquid incrementally and allowing the rice to absorb it slowly. The result is a wonderful texture and the kind of flavor that develops only with time. This risotto is flavored and colored with saffron, the mysterious, pungent and beautiful spice that is so highly prized by chefs.
