Rice......and 'Slap Yo Mama ' seasoning......

Evangeline | May 6, 200212:40 AM

OK......I need some help here with rice.
If you would, I would like to hear from the board which
rice they like to use best.

I bought several local rices grown here in LA. and I have not been happy with either of them.

One is Hank's, grown in Rayne LA. This rice is just about tasteless. I have used up HALF the bag looking for taste and there is none....I'm about to pitch it.

Next, I found a rice a Dornigacs call Ellis Stansel's
The bag says 'manufactured by Stansel Rice Co...Gueydan LA.
It comes in a cloth sack and the aroma of it KNOCKED me OUT !
When I got it home I made it immediately.....BUT !
there was not much flavor at all. The aroma is devine.....but the taste is basically nothing much.
I've been scratching my head wondering how this can smells SO GREAT !....but tastes like nothing.

Anyway.... I am NOT looking for basmati rice or jasmine rice....I don't care for the taste of THOSE with cajun food....AND....I'd like to buy local product.
DO any of you have any suggestions as to what brands taste GREAT and hold up on their own.
I'm really stumped here.

Now...Hazelhurst....I ran accross 'Slap yo mama' seasoning at Foodies Kitchen in Metairie.....
Is it worth you like the flavor???
You said it was similar to Tony's.... you like it ???
I almost bought it but I thought I should check with the board first.
If anyone else has an opinion on it....or the rice thing.... I woud love to hear it.
