About Riseria Ferron

Ferron rice is a high quality cereal which creates supreme rice products and nutritional tasty dishes. The wide range of products manufactured by Ferron include 2 different types of rice: Carnaroli rice & Vialone Nano rice

Carnaroli rice originated from the cross-breeding of the rice varieties Vialone and Lencino and is now regarded as the best rice in Italy. The Carnaroli is a superfine rice which grains are larger than other varieties. The long, compact grains keep firm and distinct during the indicated cooking time. It can create robust and delicate rice dishes including salads, risotto, and timbales.

The Vialone nano type of rice undergoes minimal processing so that the natural starches are retained and thus producing a rich, flavoursome and creamy risotto. This rice is a healthier alternative to other commercial products since it retains more vitamins and minerals.

Other products from Ferron include rice grissini, rice biscuits, pasta made from rice flour, rice polenta and more. Gluten-free and celiac options are also available.

About Gabriele Ferron

Chef Gabriele Ferron is renowned for his obsession with risotto, in fact he is also known as the ‘King of rice’. Apart from being a rice-master chef, Ferron mills his own rice at the Antica Pila Vecia farm, just outside Verona. At the Riseria Ferron the chef organises several events including degustation opportunities. Furthermore, he is also in the kitchen of Ristorante alla Torre, in the small town of Isola della Scala, in Verona. Amongst his various strategies for cooking risotto, the one he is most passionate about, is not to stir the rice whilst cooking it.
