Carnaroli is considered the “king of rices” it Italy, for its superior texture, large grains, and sweet flavor. FOG Smoked Carnaroli by Gli Aironi is smoked with cherry wood for 14 hours resulting in a rice with soft woody notes. Use in classic risotto recipes for a delicately smokey flavor, or simply boil in salted water, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and serve with meat, fish or vegetables.
For the past five generations, Gli Aironi has focused on improving farming conditions in the Vercelli region of northern Italy, implementing less invasive agriculture and restoring the local ecosystem. Their rice is minimally processed, retaining part of the germ where protein and vitamins A, D, E, and K are present. This is impossible with industrial processing methods, which cannot guarantee the retention of nutrients. The company constantly seeks perfection, assisted by food scientist Michele Perinotti, and has led international chefs (including Jamie Oliver) to choose Gli Aironi rice.

Carnaroli rice is grown in the Piedmont and Lombardy regions of northwest Italy. A short grain, plump Italian white rice, Carnaroli is considered one of the best rices to use in risotto. Carnaroli has a larger grain than the other Italian white rice varieties, but still cooks to a creamy texture with a firm body. Widely considered the finest of the risottos rice varieties, carnaroli has been nicknamed the caviar of rice. It is slightly more sensitive with regard to cooking time and can absorb large amounts of liquid, but carnaroli’s creamy texture and improved flavor keep it a favorite for chefs everywhere risotto is popular.
