Are you also a lover of rice? Then you can indulge yourself this week. Rice is one of the most versatile products in the world. And all over the world they make unparalleled rice dishes from it. Try making an Italian risotto with asparagus or a tempting Hawaiian poke bowl. Here are two suggestions. For this week I’m listing 10 great world dishes with rice: from Portuguese chicken with piri-priri, Spanish arroz negro, American gumbo, shakshuka with red rice to Indonesian nasi goreng.
Naturally, these world dishes with rice should be accompanied by a good glass of wine. Of course a matching one (that’s what I Love Food & Wine is all about). Which? Not difficult, check out my wine advice for each recipe.
Because that’s what it’s all about: beautiful wine-food combinations provide just that little bit extra, for more happyness at the table.
Risotto from the oven
If you like nice and easy, then this is your dish. In this Italian You don’t have to stir risotto with sausage, it is cooked in the oven. Super simple recipe from Yvette van Boven. Recommended!

On Thursday we go for the Portuguese piri-piri rice with chicken. It is a creamy rice dish from the oven. In terms of taste, it resembles a paella, but just a bit spicier. A delicious one-pot dish.
Black rice with prawns
Fancy something Spanish on the menu: choose arroz negro con gamba. This is the signature dish of the Spanish Sandra Alvarez. With this she became the day winner during the Master Chef Holland competition in 2015. The rice is turned black by squid ink that you can buy at the fishmonger. Really not difficult to make, but DELICIOUS. Recommended.
