- New tutorial up on The Spice is Right: Perfect Rice Forever. Loads of other tutorials exist about how to cook rice, so why did I do one? Because almost all the others involve using a rice cooker, which I don't ever use at home. Do I know how to use one? Yes. But is it necessary? No. And to put it simply, I want less people to be intimidated by cooking real, proper rice. It is not difficult, and it is healthy and delicious. I want everyone to feel they can give it a go, and nothing is more simple than cooking it on your stovetop if you only follow a few simple rules.
