Rice is a versatile, and most of the time at least, a low cost ingredient that can really go a long way. Yet there are many varieties and types of rice, with different flavors and nuances, textures and aromas. While we’re often used to seeing rice served as a side dish, rice also deserves certain stage, and can really steal the culinary show in many rice recipes.
Spain is known for a famous and delicious rice dish, the paella. This recipe is made using a native type of rice known as Bomba, a rice that has the characteristic of absorbing almost three times its weight in liquid, making the dish so juicy and flavorful. Paella is a liquid-rich dish, and it’s loaded with flavorful ingredients like garlic, veggies, and of course, seafood for a fantastic seafood paella. The rice greedily absorbs the flavor of that amazing broth for a dish that’s deeply flavored.
Almost all cultures have a popular rice dish, based on the specific varieties available. In Asia, there are many emblematic varieties of rice, like Basmatic and Jasmine rice. These are long-grain varieties that are famous for their fluffy texture and their superb aroma. They are used for many, many Asian and Indian dishes, paired with rich and flavorful sauces and curries. And of course, who can forget yellow rice in Mexican cuisine? Or the ever popular black rice in modern cooking, of healthy brown rice, the star of so many of our weekly meals.
No matter what type of rice you’re looking for, we carry a great selection of gourmet rice in bulk, at great wholesale prices. We take pride in sourcing only the highest quality grains, and in keeping our stock updated and fresh.
What is Risotto Rice?
Risotto rice is a special variety of rice, prized because it develops a creamy consistency while retaining the texture of each grain. Arborio and Carnaroli rice, the rice types that are used for risotto, are high in amylopectins, which is the substances that make rice light and fluffy. Risotto rice is native to Italy, which is why this great dish is a staple of Italian cuisine.
