Rice Balls (Arancini)

Rice Balls (Arincini)

I had my first rice balls about a year ago. My grandma was in the hospital (she’s much better now, thankfully!) and one of the only shining lights was that there was this fantastic Italian grocery store my mom knew about close by. We picked up a bunch of good stuff, along with ready-made rice balls to […]

Greek Rice Pilaf


I’m so confused as to what rice pilaf actually is. I heard a fellow line cook say once that it was “any rice that has other stuff in it”, in which Chef promptly kicked them out of the kitchen. (Gosh I’m happy he didn’t ask me.) Once the sad line cook was allowed back into the kitchen, Chef explained […]

Parmesan Risotto


Risotto is just one of those things. It’s fussy, it’s finicky, and you probably won’t get it right the first time. But after just a couple attempts at this dish, you’ll become a risotto master and will be churning out this delicious, creamy rice dish. If you want to get risotto just right, remember that it’s all in the stir. […]

Valencia Style Rice

Valencia Rice

When I first saw “Valencia Style Rice” in The Recipe Encyclopedia, I thought it might be a new way to prepare rice using different techniques and – a quick look at the ingredient list told me – items that I had never put with rice before. As I was making it I couldn’t help but wonder what made it […]

How to Cook Rice in the Oven

How to Cook Rice in the Oven

A lot of people have trouble cooking rice. My husband used to be one of them, until he nearly gave up cooking altogether and just let me take over. But the problems he had are the same that many people encounter when they try to cook a seemingly simple batch of rice. It burns onto the bottom of […]

Spanish Rice, Another Way

Spanish Rice

I love Spanish rice. As someone that’s been trying to figure out new ways to eat this starch that can be quite boring at times, Spanish rice has become one of my favourites. I make it all the time and haven’t got bored of it yet. The other day I thought it would be the […]
