Risotto Pronto from Riso Gallo is a range of delicious risottos, as only Italians know how. Because it is packed in protective atmosphere, preservatives are unnecessary. All you have to do is add water, bring to the boil, and simmer for 12 minutes to create a perfect Risotto - Pronto! The Riso Gallo story begins in 1856 in Genoa with a man called Giovanni Battista, and today, some 150 years later, his direct descendants in the sixth generation are still running the business, now located in Robbio Lomellina. Riso Gallo produces rice in the Northern Po Valley, the only authentic risotto rice growing region and the single biggest rice growing area in Europe. The interaction of climate, soil type, landscape and local workers, whose know how has been crafted by centuries of passion, ensure the uniqueness of Riso Gallo products. The Italian passion for food, with the use of natural and fresh ingredients, is recognised the world over. The dish of risotto embodies this approach, with the use of just rice, onions, a knob of butter, stock, and local fresh ingredients, being all you need for a complete meal, the perfect balance of creaminess and "al dente" texture.
