Black Rice

Black Rice

ORIGIN: Italy

This wholegrain variety presents a rare black colour and a pleasantly aromatic flavour. An ancient legend tells that this rice was grown in China exclusively for the emperor and his court and that it was particularly appreciated for its nutritional and aphrodisiac properties – hence the legendary name, “Forbidden Rice”.

In the kitchen, black rice is a perfect match for meat dishes, although the best combination would be with fish and shellfish dishes. Available both Venere and Nerone varieties.
