An Italian-style sea dish

The risotto by the Cullera de Boix chef that combines the best of the Mediterranean.

Italy shares many gastronomic passions with Catalonia, and both territories generally agree on the same culinary ingredients, but use different techniques. Such is the case of rice and seafood, which in this Italian-inspired recipe results in a risotto with calamari and razor clams. To prepare this dish, the Cullera de Boix chef, Xavier Matarrodona, rightly opts for the Piedmontese variety of Carnaroli rice, the most suitable one for cooking risottos.
