How many kinds of rice are in your pantry?

Just curious ... Right now I have Cal-Rose short grain rice, basmati, and jasmine. I doubt anyone else I know has more than one type. How about you?

I have only one white rice (also the Cal-Rose), but I also have a generic brown rice and "wild rice" which I understand isn't really rice?

I have jasmine, short grain brown and arborio. Lately I've been making brown almost exclusively.

We have basmati, Mahatma gold rice, brown rice and wild rice. The wild rice I don't keep in the pantry - I keep that in the freezer. We don't like any kind that comes out sticky.

Hi! When you go to one of the Asian Superstores that have begun popping up, there is a bewildering array of more than two dozen brands/types of rice, stacked on pallets like colorful cement bags. I eat rice almost every day. For sticky short grain, I prefer hitomebore. For fluffy long grain, I use Mahatma. I have a bag of large grain spanish paella rice. I also have a small bin of rice flour.

I stumbled upon DC last night, and signed up this morning. I haven't even set up my profile yet. I'm not all that good a cook, but I do enjoy. My plan was to lurk and learn, but participating with all of you looks like too much fun.
