Traditionally grown Japanese rice.

Great Japanese cooking requires great Japanese rice, and this 10kg bag of Yumenishiki is more than ready for the challenge. Cultivated in Italy, this rice is a new variety of Koshihikari (a type of Japonica rice), produced under the watchful eye of Japanese rice-growing professionals with traditional growing methods. A fluffy, slightly sticky rice perfect for using every day as a side dish to a Japanese meal, or for moulding into sushi and onigiri rice balls.

ITEM ID: #3056

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.

I prefer Japanese rice to other kinds of rice. So the bag was a good value and works excellent with Japanese rice cookers.

Best quality rice I've found. It's slightly more expensive than the Nishiki, but well worth the extra few ££s.

It’s not really the same quality as you get if you bought made in Japan rice but for the price I’m happy with it.

Use local spring water from the Malvern mountain (free water) makes the rice come alive like we eat in Japan. So delicious
