Great-tasting everyday rice.

For authentic Japanese cooking, you need authentic Japanese rice, and this 1kg bag of Nishiki rice nicely fits that bill. Grown in California (with the help of the US state's rich soil and crystal clear water), Nishiki is a premium, medium grain variety of Japonica rice. When freshly steamed it becomes fluffy and slightly sticky, making it perfect for making sushi or onigiri rice balls, or for serving alongside other homecooked Japanese meals.

ITEM ID: #1371

Background

As the interest in Japanese cuisine has grown worldwide, so too has the demand for Japanese, or Japonica, rices. These rices are small to medium in grain size and become particularly sticky when cooked, making them ideal for eating out of side bowls with chopsticks, or for pressing into moulded sushi and onigiri rice ball shapes. Take a look at Japan Centre's Rice section for a fantastic variety of Japonica rice, grown in Japan and around the world.

First rate quality

I grew up eating quality short grain rice and I'm very happy with this brand. No point paying a lot more buying 'grown in Japan' rice when you don't have time to make the perfect rice the traditional japanese way ;-)

This rice is good quality I would recommend it.\nI brought some back from Japan years ago and I recently found it at the back of the cupboard, it appeared to still be in excellent condition. I thought it best to discard it after so long.
