One of the great culinary pairings: risotto and truffles. Tartufi Jimmy combines creamy carnaroli risotto rice with black truffles and a blend of spices that comes together with minimal preparation and maximum flavor. It differs from normal rice in that during cooking the grains become sticky and form a creamy bulk. The better risotto is made from Carnaroli rice.
This type of rice is somewhat harder and after cooking it is soft on the outside and more firm on the inside. So just like pasta, typically 'al dente'. Adding dried black truffles to the rice creates a delicious truffle risotto. You make the tastiest truffle risotto by adding (Parmesan) cheese, truffle sauces or truffle oil.

About Tartufi Jimmy
The Truffle hunt was originally done with pigs. "Jimmy" was the name of the pig with which Gino, the father of the founder (Giovannino), went hunting for truffles every morning. When Giovannino started his truffle business, he called the company "Tartufi Jimmy". In 1980 he started developing a product line that reflects the authenticity of simple ingredients in combination with the precious truffle. Buspro is proud to be able to import these craft products to the Netherlands. From truffle butter to truffle oil. The head office is in Pietralunga. The Tiber Valley in Umbria is attractively situated among vineyards, olive groves and oak forests. Giovannino is driven by a passion that is passed on from generation to generation.
