MASTERS OF RICE
The taste of Nature
An episode from the series MASTERS OF SAVOURS
Rice is one of the most widely consumed staple food. It may look like a deceptively simple grain but it requires grueling work to grow, harvest and process.
This film takes us on a rice journey deeply rooted in Asia where we discover local customs around this "common" grain: in Thailand people massage their babies with rice milk; Japan produces wine from it to create the famous sake; in India farmers grow the Navara, a very original variety with an unique taste and medicinal virtues.
