Episode 143: How to Cook Rice

Filed Under:

Kitchen Skills

Share This:

Rice is the third largest agricultural commodity, and the only of the top three grown primarily for human consumption. That makes it the most important food crop to human sustenance, providing humans worldwide with a whopping one-fifth of our caloric intake. Rice is that important. And kind of tricky to cook — until you know how to do it right.

So Many Ways to Go Right — or Wrong

Rice can be deceptively difficult to cook, with even the most experienced cooks getting it wrong (so wrong) sometimes. It doesn’t help that a quick search for how to cook rice yields a gajillion methods, every one claiming to be the best. (And, yes, that’s an exact count.)

But truly, once you get the hang of it, cooking rice well becomes second nature. You’ll find the right pot, the perfect setting on your stove, a technique that works for your cooking style, and you’ll get it done well. You’ll also wonder how you tolerated all that gummy, mushy rice you tolerated before, because there’s no need for that nonsense anymore!
