Also known as “forbidden rice”, black Venere rice was born in Italy, in 1997. It was created by the chinese breeder Wang Xue Ren, arrived in Italy in 1989, after Tienanmen Square protests. He crossed a black chinese rice with an italian rice, so he created the first italian black rice.

Venere (also called Venus abroad) was the first black rice cultivated in Italy, but in a few years new black rices were created: Artemide black rice, but also Nerone, Violet and Ebano black rice.

These kind of rices are naturally black, thanks to the presence of anthocyanins. Black rice is a brown rice, so it has more nutritional values, like vegetal fats, fibers, vitamins and mineral salts. That’s also why it requires a long cooking time! About 30 – 40 minutes.

The aroma of black rice is totally natural, similar to toasted bread.
