Why the rice? What makes this rice so important? Believe me I have struggled with making
paella with the long and short grained rice readily available, and I will attest to this…
THERE IS NO COMPARISON.
Santa Tomas Bomba rice grains double in size, in both length and width. They are also harder than any other rice variety in the world, which means they can absorb more liquid, and thus flavor, as compared to other rice varieties. Bomba rice maintains it’s consistent texture even under extended cooking so it will never become sticky, fluffy, or mushy. Even though it absorbs more liquid than ordinary rice varieties, the grains remain separate and individually loose from one another. This makes it perfect for paellas! Grown in the Certified origin (Denominacion de Origen a.k.a. "D.O.") from the L’Albufera nature preserve in Valencia, Spain.
**I will include a copy my personal paella recipe if you ask. If you need additional help with preparing your favorite Paella let me know.
Here is a simple ratio for your recipes.
Bomba Rice --- Liquid --- Ratio
0.5 cups --- 2.25 cups --- 4.5
Note: You'll notice an increase in the price of some of our DEALS this year. This is due to the drastic increase in my wholesale costs including freight, inflationary costs in Spain (including olive oil) and the high cost of shipping in the US. As always, we attempt to keep these increases at a minimum.
