There aren’t too many specialty ingredients needed for the book ‘A Little Taste of Spain’, however we thought we would provide a resource for what rice to buy and where. If you come across any quality Spanish Paprika in your travels, we recommend buying it. Your dishes are only as good as the ingredients that you use. If you would prefer to buy the Spice Pack from Grandmaspantry.skinnymixers.com, don’t forget to use the discount code SKMIX for 10% off.
The ‘Where to buy Spanish Rice’
We also have a new ‘Spanish Rice Stockists’ spreahseet, so if you come across any specialty Spanish rice in your travels please help us build up this invaluable resource by adding any shops you find here.
Types of Rice
Bomba Rice or Calasparra
This is the recommended rice for the Spanish Rice recipe in ‘A Little Taste of Spain’, however it can be quite expensive (Approx. $9.95 for 500g-1kg).
Typically you won’t find Bomba Rice at the big supermarkets, the next best substitute is Arroz Spanish Rice or Paella Rice (unflavoured) which can sometimes be found in Woolworths. Alternatively we have also tested the recipe with Arborio rice which is widely found everywhere.
You will find the Bomba Rice at larger IGAs, specialty delicatessens and Grandma’s Pantry
There is also Bomba Rice in the ‘ALTo Spain Spice Pack’ from Grandmaspantry.skinnymixers.com. Don’t forget to use the code SKMIX for 10% off.
