Soaring sales of Arborio risotto rice has prompted Tilda to replace its 8 x 1kg catering packs with a larger 5kg pack to meet growing demand.
The group says sales of its Arborio rice have grown by 10% year-on-year, suggesting that risotto dishes are becoming menu staples.
Arborio rice is the finest of the Superfino variety of risotto rice as the short, plump grains absorb flavours well and enhance the creaminess of the dish while retaining an al dente bite inside. It works equally well with seafood, meat and vegetables.
