Same here. Unfortunately, most rice served here in the US, (and carried in most stores) is really low grade and not as tasty as you can get overseas. Long grained rice, as served in most restaurants, is parboiled and pretty tasteless. I prefer short grained rice, for most things. And I am really fond of the real Carolina Gold rice, (an heirloom variety that is very nutty and fragrant). I wish most Americans would pay attention and demand higher quality rice, we'd all be better off.

I prepare jasmine rice and I enjoy it several times a week.  I use it with General Tso, gravy, and veggies.  Sometimes even by itself with butter and pepper.

Is it a southern cooking truism to have rice with pork and chicken? We always did but I never realized til an adult that not everyone agrees.
Beef got potatoes, while ham seemed to always get sweet potatoes.
I still follow that routine for the most part.

No we never paired a starch to any specific meat: It was whatever we felt like having (or should I say, whatever my mom felt like making).

I've come to realize that I lot of my ideas and concepts about food are still based on the way I grew up eating, I'm just becoming more aware of it. :)

I love (real) wild rice as harvested by the native Americans in Minnesota.
(Moose Lake brand). Yes, not real rice but, I like it even better.

Wild rice is actually a grass seed. It's also known as (American) Indian rice and Canada rice. It isn't really rice.

There's also a California wild rice that isn't really.
We used to make a Thanksgiving dish every year that was from a diner on the Mississippi in Ft. Madison, Iowa.

Michael is quite right. Mind you, I still love (real) as well. Especially, Jasmine and Basmati.

One of my most favorite meals! I had it in Tuscany once with shaved white truffles covering the risotto. Don't even ask how good it was.
My choice for my last meal before I go to food heaven.
