Rice in all it’s forms is wonderfully versatile. There’s also many forms of rice; Long grain, slightly perfumed basmati rice is great with a curry, or sticky sushi rice is great with Japanese food. Or perhaps try some of the more exotic types like the red rice from the Camargue or the stunningly different black rice, from China.

However, one of the best rice types is Arborio rice from northern Italy, which makes brilliant risotto, which has become one of the world’s favourite and most luxurious dishes. So for inspiration, take a look at the best 20 in Hong Kong.
