Deliver Authentic Dishes with U.S.-Grown Rice
Rice is the pantry staple that works as the perfect canvas for many different flavors, cooking techniques, and regional dishes. Great food happens with every choice that a cook makes. It all starts with the idea of the dish that you want to create or replicate. After that the heavy lifting starts. One could argue that when cooking the ingredients that you choose to cook is as important, or even more important than the method in which you choose to employ while cooking.
Throughout my twenty-year career as a chef, I have developed and refined my creative process and cooking style. There is a simple rule of cooking that you always must follow: the quality of every ingredient matters. You will never be able to truly achieve great dishes if you don’t start with great ingredients. American grown rice varieties truly hits that mark of quality and consistency.
When I cook, I often look to my past memories of great dishes that have had an impact on my life. Rice is a timeless ingredient that can instantly transport and connect you to many time and places. Whether cooking for a food operation or for your family, rice is always a great choice.
