Thanks, Andy. I'll put medium grain rice on my grocery list.

Looks specifically for Arborio or Carnaroli rice. Of the two, Carnaroli is better to use for risotto.

Like many, I can't narrow it down. Having lived in Hawaii for quite awhile, I always have some calrose on hand. I usually have either or both jasmine and basmati. I like converted rice for cold salads, where you need that separation of grains. I make rice socks for friends with arthritis (and always have a couple around the house) and just buy whatever is cheapest for them! I've used the calrose for risotto, and my guests never know the difference (and most of them are very well travelled), although I can now get aborio and other rices here (when I first moved here you couldn't). I think right now I have 3 types. It isn't unusual for me to have more.

We have Basmati rice, just bought a new 1kg-back yesterday..
For me it fits everything we do with it, mostly some Wok-dishes... but as I read this, I could make a risotto again... must be years I last had it..

My favourite rice is Camargue red rice. It's gorgeous. I like it served with a Thai chicken curry, or in a salad.

I love risotto, I adore making it. It's not difficult, but it certainly isn't a low maintenance dish, you have to stay with it til the end. I do somewhere have a cheats version cooked in the microwave, which is suprisingly good.

I love any kind of rice.. but my fav would probably be white rice with sesame chicken or any other kind of chinese meat in sauce over the top of it.

With my meals I usually serve Basmhati or Jasmine.. And, even though I have heard that it is technically NOT a rice, living in the Northern Lake country, I tend to love a good Wild Rice..

I like Carmargue rice, too, Kyles. It has a unique flavour, doesn't it?
