When you get down to it, paella is all about the rice. And many chefs and paella aficionados agree that Bomba is the ideal paella rice.
Grown in the rich soils of the protected L'Albufera Park of Valencia, this low yield, short-grain rice is extra-absorbent, taking in 3 parts liquid to each portion of rice. (Most other rices are closer to a 2:1 ratio). This allows Bomba rice to absorb all of your stock and the juices from your ingredients, yet still maintain a nice separate grain. This also makes more "forgiving" than other rices. So load up on the juicy seafood and other goodies - Bomba can take it!
To ensure freshness and the highest quality final product, Matiz rices are packed in a sturdy cloth sack that allows the rice to breathe. 1 kilo / 2.2 lbs. (apprx. 5 cups dry rice)
