Description

Rice is eaten by more people around the world than any other food. You'll find it in grain bowls and noodles, cakes and soups, puddings and chips and beverages; it can be steamed or boiled or fried or pulverized to be creamy or crispy or fluffy or jiggly. Find out how one seed can be so many things to so many people, and how thinking like a scientist could lead to your best bowl of rice yet, as Exploratorium Senior Scientist Julie Yu goes deep on the science of this staple food.

In addition, sample the Korean liquor soju, which can be made from rice, and an array of rice varieties from around the world: red rice from the Rhone River in France, "forbidden" black rice from Burma, and Japanese sushi rice, plus brown rice, basmati rice, and jasmine rice.
