Recently I was invited for a lunch and tour through the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I visited every Hortus Botanicus in the big cities during my world trip, so I was super excited when I received the invitiation for a lunch in my ‘own’ hortus. It was a super lovely autumn afternoon! The sun was out and there was gooood food!
I was invited by rice brand Tilda for a rice safari so there was a lot of rice tasting! I didn’t really realize it before, but Tilda is actually a ‘really fancy rice’. If you think rice is just rice, it’s not. Tilda’s Basmati rice is best because Tilda rejects broken grains that would otherwise release starch and cause the rice to become sticky. So this post took a while to create, because I wanted to try cooking with the rice for myself first. And yes, the rice is awesome and is really different than ‘cheap rice’ (the one I usually buy, because I though rice is just rice. Well, unfortunately it’s not).
I’m so happy that I’ve learnt the difference, because you have to eat a lot of rice when you cannot eat gluten. They had a few options for us to try (I mean EAT! There was sooo much food at the lunch, yumm!). They really showed all the variation rice has to offer, which I loved because I never thought of using figs or papaya in my rice dish before. Or that sushi has a completely different taste with different rice (SO GOOD).
Success! Now check your email to download the checklist!
So cool that I’ve tried Tilda now, because you can really taste the difference and it’s definitly a new way of cooking! I really liked the rice safari experience idea, thanks for inviting me Tilda! When is the next lunch? 😉
