Our "Maratelli" rice is very much our "Super Rice" which is very popular for both home cooking and catering. In fact its the rice we choose to take home for our own cooking! The rice is grown in Navarra in a cooler climate in smaller rice paddies. This strain of rice has a high concentration of "amylose" which is a starch that decreases stickiness and increases the firmness of the rice. This has the effect of making the rice very easy to cook, very forgiving and perfect for the amateur paella chef!
It is very similar to cook with as the normal Bahia paella rice using just over 2 times the quantity of stock to rice.
All our paella rice comes from ARROCERÍAS ANTONIO TOMÁS S.L. a company founded 40 years ago. Their Santo Tomas brand is recognised today as one premium brands in the market due to its quality.
How much rice do I use per person ?
For a "main course" portion use about 100g of dry rice per person. If it is more of a "tapas" size you need - eg it is part of a larger selection of dishes you are serving, use between 80g-85g of rice per person.

I have little to compare other than the fact that this rice seems to cook perfectly and tastes great. Recommend to buy from them rather than the supermarket
