1 kg cloth bag of La Perla J. Sendra Round rice (arroz redondo), DOP Valencia, special for paella, from Valencia.
The J. Sendra variety is an emblematic round-grain rice grown in the Albufera de València Natural Park. Classified as "Sénia type", its composition guarantees the creamy texture of the grain after cooking and the complete absorption of the flavours.
It is a delicate and tasty rice, so it is recommended not to exceed 18 minutes of cooking time in order to obtain a perfect finish and enjoy this variety in all its splendour. Its fragility reserves it for master recipes in which everything is under control, as in our case, recommended for Paella Valenciana and other recipes with heterogeneous flavour nuances.
Arroz la Perla's history of love and passion for rice led them to recover the Senia seed and become the only producers of this rice. Always under the protection of DO Arrós de Valéncia, a historic mill producing this jewel of Valencian rice.
La Perla only offers rice with the Denomination of Origin "Arroz de Valencia" which, as well as certifying the quality and origin of the rice, only the best farmers and mills are able to pass its strict quality controls.
This is a medium grain of 5,2 mm, which doubles in size when cooked. Pearl tone.
It is the most widely used rice for cooking Valencian paella and all types of Valencian rice dishes. Many people consider this rice the authentic ingredient for paellas because it absorbs all the nuances, even differentiating a paella cooked over a wood fire.
