12 Types of Rice, Examined Under a Microscope and Cooked | Bon Appétit

  • Published: 18 September 2019
  • We wanted to make a video in which we examined every type of rice under a microscope and then cooked a dish with each of them, but then we learned that there are more than forty thousand varieties of it. So here are 12 types of rice, examined, explained and prepared by the one and only Amiel Stanek.

      Disappointed there were no Filipino dishes! Arroz caldo (w/ glutinous rice) and sinangag (w/ jasmine rice) are some favs.

        I still gave you a thumbs up even though I was disappointed at the end to not be able to see all 12 types of rice on the same screen because the "coming attractions" blocked it.

          Ok but if we’re all honest, basmati rice is the best type of rice

                  This brings me back to the three months I spent basically living off brown jasmine rice with mixed frozen veggies. Ahhh living on my own for the first time.

                              Chicken and wild rice soup would have been perfect for the wild rice dish! It’s gotta be one of my favorite foods ever

                                              It feels so nice knowing I wasn't going crazy when I knew I was tasting different flavors in different rices. Also good to know my desire to have black rice has increased tenfold. heck yeah.
