Is Wild Rice Sold in UK or Europe?

opinionatedchef | Nov 22, 201409:09 PM     33

I live in Boston Massachusetts and am thinking about special U.S. food gifts for friends in UK etc and Europe. From my own region, Maple Syrup is often a gift hit, but I was also thinking about stone ground grits and wild rice.The latter is not really a rice, but is a seed of a reed/grass that grows in wet areas (in Minnesota especially.)It is long grain, black, chewy and nutty- like no other grain that I know. I'm guessing that it is pretty unknown and not sold outside of the U.S., but thought I'd ask.

* In France, the nutty and redish Camargue Rice is apparently relatively new. Have you seen it much in stores or restaurants?
