I recently read that this type of rice creates a very creamy risotto. I'm a risotto freak and have never tried this kind. I can't recall seeing it ever before...anyone know where I can buy some?
I used to buy it in Whole Foods here in San Francisco. Alas, they don't stock it anymore. It is definitely the best rissoto rice I've ever used.
Here's a good article on the differences.
Very recently I made a Vialone Nano risotto, and I thought it had a pleasant texture, perhaps even superior to when I used Carnaroli. However, it could also mean I simply got better at making them or the stove conditions improved, etc.
The kernal of arborio is smaller. Depending on the arborio you will probably want either this or carneroli. Also, there are different brands of violane nano. Below I've linked a source.
where are you located?
I live in the city, work in the San Mateo area.
Its available at A.G. Ferrari and both Pasta Shops in Berkeley in addition to several web sites. Molinari carried it in the 90's, I haven't looked there for it since then.
