diRiso Risotto Balls, originally named Lasagna Preziosa, started in 2009 as an outdoor food stand at the Hastings on Hudson Farmers Market. My father, who was raised in South Italy, started the business as a side project to explore his passion for cooking Italian food. The residents of Hastings on Hudson gravitated toward the delicious fresh mozzarella, focaccia bread, lasagna and risotto balls that he was selling at the market. Eventually, I started to assist my father with the business, first by selling at the market, and then later on by getting involved with production in the kitchen.
With time, it became clear that the Risotto Balls were our most popular product. I suggested that we change the name of the business and focus on a concept surrounding the Risotto Balls. Nearing my graduation from Oneonta State University, I started applying for more farmers markets, festivals and events in the area. We have since expanded into five markets across Westchester and NYC, several major food/music festivals and a catering operation. Our cooking is done in our commissary kitchen in Tarrytown, NY.
We strive to create products that stand-out, both in flavor and visual appeal. Our recipes and processes have been perfected to ensure consistently high standards. Our core motivation is to provide outstanding customer experiences, and for this reason we are always looking to improve our product offerings and commitment to exceptional service.
