Rices of the World

Rice is enjoyed at home all over the world. It is a staple food in many cultures—some of which enjoy it several times a day, at any time of the day. Whether served as a starter, main course, side dish or even as a dessert, rice is a tasty flavour carrier and can be used in many ways. But rice is not just rice. It comes in many different varieties that vary by their uses and characteristics.
