Can we talk about short grain rice?

Mariko | Nov 11, 2002 05:25 PM

Hello all. I am new to these boards and am digging them, especially since I think about food about 85 percent of the time.

I'm wondering about people's opinions and ideas regarding the best short grain rice. I have always heard (from my mother, and aren't mothers always right?) that the best rice is the Kokuho Rose variety from Koda Farms in Dos Palos. It HAS to be from that particular farm. It is SO delicious and coveted, in fact, that when Koda Farms cut down on their output, people lined up outside Anzen (Asian market in Portland, OR, where my mother works) to get a bag or two (they even had to ration it!).

Of course, that was back when there weren't as many varieties available for sale.

So, opinions, anyone?
