Ok I realise we got much bigger problems but something has been gnawing at me for 3 years now.
I have Asian coworkers and neighbours, Chinese, Japanese, Philippinos, Malaysians etc
I am a white Christian guy
About 10 years ago I tried Indian Basmati rice in various dishes prepared in local Iranian restaurant, it became obvious that basmati Indian was
superior rice in taste to all others.
Sure for sushi you need that sticky rice, but I am talking about rice for general use in cooking.
I assumed that Asians knew about this rice and that I am LATE to the game.
Turns out when the subject of rice would ever come up at lunch, they HAVE NO IDEA, majority are buying some crappy bulk rice, and are asking me what
is that good rice and where do I buy it.
WHAT THE F
if you need a white guy to school you on which rice is good ...
Do you ever see an Asian guy explain to a white person how for example fresh baked French bread is good.
No, we already know that, we grew up on bread, our parents and grandparents grew up on bread.
Bread is for us what rice is for you.
And you can't give me crap how Indian basmati is too expensive to afford.
sure it is 2 - 3 dollars more per bag than other rice, BUT THIS IS RICE NOT MEAT
If you live and work in Canada or the United States, you CAN afford quality rice for yourself and your family.
If you live in Asia or Mexico and you are poor and can't afford quality rice, I don't blame you one bit.
But living in a western nation making same or more money than me, you have no excuse.
One guy from Vietnam told me, well crap I already bought 10 bags of other rice at discount and we have to go through that now until I can buy Indian
Where the hell does this guy go shopping ? Is it too much to ask for some rice competence ?
