Description: Meracinque like to think of their risotto kits as a comfort food (with less guilt), versatile and super easy to prepare. They have combined their top quality Carnaroli rice (grown on their dad's farm) with the freshest dried Italian ingredients. This way everyone has the opportunity to enjoy their grandad's recipe in only 15 minutes. Try it to believe it!


1) Pour the content of the 2 sachets into 700ml of cold water, stir well and bring to the boil.
2) Reduce the heat slightly and cook for a further 15 minutes, uncovered, until the water is absorbed. Stir occasionally, especially towards the end of the cooking.
3) Remove from the heat, add 30gr of butter or a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and 25gr of grated Parmesan cheese for an extra tasty risotto. Mix well and serve.
4) For a touch of extra happiness add some pumpkin seeds and zucchini sauteed in olive oil! Stay tuned, our e-commerce will be live soon!

Many customers use the calendar for orders they'd like to arrive in the future, and as close to, or on, a specific date. Please do select the target date using the calendar and make sure your paid shipping charge matches your choice. For example if you're ordering for a Saturday delivery in a fortnight, you'd pick the date on the calendar and pay for Saturday delivery in your cart.


If your item contains fresh products requiring ice packs for transit, we will only ship it if a suitable shipping option has been selected and paid for to ensure it arrives in a good state. For example we wouldn't ship a gift with cheese on a Friday for delivery on a Monday as standard.
