La Balocchina Carnaroli is an high quality rice, cultivated in the Vercelli area part of the Piedmont region in Italy, packed in a sustainable and elegant cotton bag.

With its large grains and elongated shape, this rice is certainly the one that remains ‘al dente’.

Loved by fine cooking artists, Carnaroli rice is capable of turning your everyday meal into a signature dish. 

Also known as ‘the king of rice’, Carnaroli is among the most popular varieties of Italian rice in the world, for its excellent resistance to being overcooked, and the ability to absorb aromas and condiments in an excellent way.

The grain maintains its consistency for a long time even once cooked.

All these characteristics make it ideal for your risotto, rice salads, paella or arancini (Sicilian rice balls).

The following is why we love it:

  • High quality product from a boutique producer
  • Plastic free sustainable cotton packaging
  • Perfect to enjoy or to gift


About the producer:

La Balocchina starts its history in 1930 in Vercelli, Piedmont, the same place where rice has been produced since the 1500. Today, La Balocchina is still using artisanal techniques, like stone refining, as well as being attentive to the sustainability of the whole process, from field to table.

Among the many excellences for which Piedmont is famous, Vercelli, also known as the ‘City of Rice’, takes a particular place. Thanks to its predominant territorial peculiarity, this is the province of reference for European rice production.
