Uncle Ben’s Announce Best Rice Dish Competition Winner Ahead of National Rice Week 2017!

  • On 30th August 2017


To celebrate National Rice Week, we are delighted to announce that the winner of the UNCLE BEN’S® Best Rice Dish 2017 competition is Rob Maidment from Simpsons Lane Academy, West Yorkshire!

The competition, which gave school caterers the chance to win 6 months free supply of UNCLE BEN’S® rice plus a brand new Kitchen Aid, invited caterers to create a delicious and unique rice dish, specifically designed to go onto their school menu during National Rice Week (18th-24th September). After an extremely tough judging process to decide the winning recipe, it was Rob’s ‘Italian Chicken and Courgette Rice’ dish, which really stood out presenting him with the first place prize!

Whether it’s used as the base of a main meal or as an accompaniment, rice is an incredibly versatile food and is perfect for recreating a whole host of authentic world cuisines. UNCLE BEN’S® offer a range of high quality rices – from Long Grain and Whole Grain, to Basmati which are ideal for canteen or buffet style set-ups as they can be held in a bain-marie for up to 2 hours with no compromise to flavour or quality. What’s more, all three varieties have cook times of just 10-14 minutes saving caterers precious time in the kitchen.
