From the Camargue, that strange, low-lying country of black bulls and white horses in the south of France, comes an unusual strain of red rice, now being sold in Britain. Not as refined as white rice, it takes longer to cook and retains more bite. But it can be used to good effect in traditional rice recipes, and I have devised a red risotto to make the most of its colour.
