Sharing the same origins as wheat, spelt was for a long time essential in the Mediterranean diet. It is nowadays being rediscovered in cooking. Use it where we would use rice or wheat, for example as a flavour booster with vegetables. In your favourite soups or salads, spelt brings its pleasant aromatic characteristics as well as beneficial minerals such as magnesium and phosphorus.
Lucedio is the very place where rice cultivation was introduced to Italy, on land belonging to an abbey founded by monks in 1123. Fruit of a tradition now over 1,000 years old, Principato di Lucedio is a premium rice that is ideal for preparing authentic Italian risotto.
