So, you must not have seen my little surprise. maybe it crawled off before you got the plate.

It's not what you do to them, it's where they're grown ....

My wife likes to cook with long grain rice. I prefer short grain. We cook rice everyday using a genuine Japanese modern rice cooker.

I used to eat fried rice all the time in university, but, oddly enough, I eat it very rarely now that I'm actually in China. A secret: the fried rice in anywhere but southern China (Fujian/Fukien/Hokkien, Guangdong/Canton, Hong Kong) sucks. The first time I ordered fried rice in Beijing I felt ill... it was a tasteless plate of oily rice with a couple of pieces of meat in it. Northerners DO NOT UNDERSTAND rice. Even in Shanghai, it's hit or miss.
