Rice Shopping Tip

Rice is enjoyed in almost all cuisines and is readily available globally. For a simple side dish to any meat or vegetable entrée, rice is a great complement.

Rice Cooking Tip

Be sure you are using the correct type of rice needed to obtain the result you are looking for. Long grain rice stays fluffy and individual while shorter grain rice is starchier. Also, rinse all rice before use.

Rice Wine Pairing

Tempranillo or other light Spanish red wine types with paella, even seafood paella. Various other wines depending on what rice is cooked with; see Pasta Recipes and other individual food types.
