Gli Aironi


Vercellesi Farms area is well known as the heart of the European rice production. The family Perinotti lives amidst this landscape, among frogs and gray herons, cultivating rice for five generations. These farmers have made a rather unconventional choice:

  • by investing in quality: many chefs use the Gli Aironi rice
  • minimizing their impact on the environment: the crops are developed to minimize the environmental impact and comply with eco-friendly models governed by the rules of the EU No. 2078
  • rediscovering traditional varieties of rice for this purpose, Gli Aironi working with Slow Food to sustain the biodiversity of some rice, providing the necessary technical expertise

  • Production, meanwhile, combines the old method to new processes to deliver what is best. In fact, rice kernels are shelled by hand in the stone to keep all the nutrients. They are then sorted by color, purity and size, retaining only the best beans. Finally, the rice is vacuum packed to ensure optimum preservation.

    cook with talent

    Melt a knob of butter in a pan. Pour contents of the jar into the pan and cook until the rice grains are translucent. Still stirring, add a glass of white wine. When the liquid has been absorbed, pour in gradually as the water is absorbed and a half two glasses of warm water.When all the liquid is absorbed and the risotto with porcini mushrooms has a creamy texture, remove from heat and add a knob of butter and grated Parmesan. Put aside for one minute and add a pinch of salt.
