  1. Carnaroli Rice?! Learn something new everyday.

  2. The three more popular types of rice for risotto are Vialone Nano, Carnaroli and Arborio. There are less known varieties too, but these three are the easiest to find overseas (arborio being the most common and Carnaroli the most expensive, usually).
