Dressing Up A Dinner Party With Exotic Rice & Grains


Posted: December 16, 2005
by: T.Alexander

Developing center of the plate entrees for a dinner party is fairly easy. Selecting from the basic protein groups to satisfy your guests is not that difficult. What I do find difficult is identifing those little culinary extras that make the dinner different and memorable.

I have a resource for you called Indian Harvest. They are primarily a foodservice supplier but they also sell retail via the web. "Take a taste adventure of enticing grain flavors from exotic places around the world" is their slogan. Grains and pastas have been the subject of much criticism due to the carbohydrate issue. Just remember, small portions and moderation.

You might enjoy their exotic grain sampler with 8 oz. packets of the following for $21.95:

Red Quinoa Indian_harvest_rice

Black Barley from Ethiopia

Purple Thai Rice
Israeli Couscous
Himalayan Red Rice
Our own Colusariā„¢ Red Rice
Bamboo Rice

They also offer Tuxedo Orzo and Israeli Couscous as well as other unique pasta. Bon appeteit!
