What you'll learn
Understand the process of rice and learn to choose the best varieties
You will learn to cook an always perfect rice with 7 incredible and varied recipes, which are mixed with passion, experience, taste and premium ingredients. Understand the importance of having everything measured and calculated from the very beginning to cook a great rice dish. This must be so as rice is time, temperature, water and fat.
During this online rice course, you will see recipes like ‘Rice with veal leg and chickpeas‘, very marine rice dishes such as ‘Rice with broth of smoked morey eel and onions‘, ‘Black rice with cuttlefish’ or ‘Rice with plankton‘. Also, you will learn to cook “Rice with milk” but without any milk.
All this will be done without forgeting an essencial part, which is the theory –put into practice throughout the course- of key elements such as:
- Distinguish among the different varieties of rice (Bombita, Bahía, Carnaroli or Albufera, among others from the Levant)
- Knowing what variety of rice should be used to cook one recipe or another according to chef María José San Román:
- Soupy Rice: variety Albufera and variety Bomba
- Dry Rice: variety Bahía, whole rice Bahía & Senia
- Thick Rice: variety Bombita and Carnaroli.
- Preparing a good sofrito/sauté like salmorreta
- The importance of a good broth for rice, like white or red fumet.
After this course, you will be able to invite everybody for lunch and enjoy a premium rice, either cooked with a paella pan or in a (wood-fired) oven!
