Celebrate National Rice Week
17 – 23 September 2018
National Rice Week 2018 is a celebration of the exotic – a time to experiment with new and authentic culinary flavours from around the globe. Surprisingly, as its not grown in the UK, rice is a true British favourite and features in so many of our most loved dishes: from egg fried rice and chicken tikka masala to Granny’s favourite – rice pudding!
This store cupboard ingredient is a genuine life-saver. A cheap and long-lasting staple it can feed a room full of hungry students – think rice and grain salad; provide a much needed Friday night treat in the form of a Thai curry; or can be used to impress a roomful of guests with an authentic nasi lemak.
So whether you’re looking for inspo to use up leftovers, rustle up a quick midweek meal, or discover a new go-to salad, rice could well be your answer.
