More than 35 years ago began purchasing this rice while living in a small Italian village. Until the early 1990's it was available in a small green grocer in our community. Some time after I moved, I discovered Principato di Lucedio at Market Hall Foods...thank goodness! It is very simply the best.
I had thought all Arborio rice products were about the same until I tried a local brand when I had run out of the Principato di Lucedio brand that I had purchased at Market Hall website. The difference is like night and day! The Principato brand is much creamier and easier to prepare and the recipe accompanying it was wonderful!
