Last night (9/29) was yet another great #Foodiechats! Our theme was “The Many Uses of Rice Vinegar” sponsored by @MarukanVinegar and we learned so much about all the different ways rice vinegar can be enjoyed!

@MarukanVinegar is the secret ingredient of the greatest chefs around the world!

Delicate. Delightful. Mild. Mellow. These are not words that typically escape the lips of American consumers when they think of vinegar, but for the world’s greatest chefs and a fast-growing number of health-conscious and gourmet-savvy consumers, they are the words that describe the legendary essence of¬†@MarukanVinegar.

Professional and home chefs the world over know that time-honored @MarukanVinegar (all Non-GMO Project Verified) has a magical ability to enhance anything it touches and serve as the secret ingredient of their finest sauces, dressings, marinades and favorite dishes. The slow-brewed Japanese artisan process, the same today as it was when @MarukanVinegar was founded in Japan in 1649, provides superior flavor that has made the brand the ultimate food enhancer for centuries. 

We had such a fun and interesting #Foodiechats last night!

One fun questions was “Q7  via Rediscover Rice Vinegar for lunch. What do you use to kick up your sandwich spreads?”

,  and  had us drooling! 

Another great question was “Q10  via What is the best food you discovered while traveling?”

,  and  have had some awesome foodie adventures!

One more question we loved was “Q5  via Have you used Rice Vinegar in a dessert? Share your favorite recipes!”

,  and  have all rediscovered rice vinegar when it comes to dessert!

Thank you to our sponsor @MarukanVinegar for such a fun night of #Foodiechats! We loved getting to Rediscover Rice Vinegar!

Tweet us using the hashtag #Foodiechats and tell us your favorite dish to make with rice vinegar!

Marukan Rice Vinegar: The Secret Ingredient of the World’s Greatest Chefs.¬†Bring Foods and Flavors to Life with One of the Most Revered Healthy Ingredients in the Culinary Arsenal
Delicate. Delightful. Mild. Mellow. These are not words that typically escape the lips of American consumers when they think of vinegar, but for the world’s greatest chefs and a fast-growing number of health-conscious and gourmet-savvy consumers, they are the words that describe the legendary essence of¬†Marukan Rice Vinegar.

 
365 Years Blending Quality and Tradition 
                                                                                                                                                                     
Professional and home chefs the world over know that time-honored Marukan Rice Vinegar (all Non-GMO Project Verified) has a magical ability to enhance anything it touches and serve as the secret ingredient of their finest sauces, dressings, marinades and favorite dishes. The slow-brewed Japanese artisan process, the same today as it was when Marukan was founded in Japan in 1649, provides superior flavor that has made the brand the ultimate food enhancer for centuries. 

 
The Ingredient of Good Health                                                                            
 
In addition to its obvious appeal as a universal flavor enhancer, the health benefits of high amino acid rice vinegar have been well known since Hippocrates first treated patients with vinegar centuries ago. These days, this special blend of natural ingredients and human ingenuity is used to reduce high blood pressure and replace salt in low-sodium diets. An added benefit for today’s health and weight-conscious consumers is vinegar’s ability to help the body more efficiently break down and digest food and reduce fat by minimizing the strain on the liver caused by processing all the fats in the typical American diet.

There’s no better way to spice up a Wednesday than with a Special Edition #Foodiechats!

Today (9/24) we had a¬†Special Edition¬†#Foodiechats¬†celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with our sponsor @WinnDixieLatino. The theme was “Two Cultures, Amazing Freshness.”

@WinnDixieLatino is all about fresh products to create a fresh life. Hispanics come to this country looking for fresh opportunities and in their search they adopt a new culture, but never lose their own. This results in a fusion of two cultures that creates a new, fresh one! 

This year, @WinnDixieLatino celebrates the freshness of the fusion of two cultures and they want to share a handful of new Latin and American fusion recipes, like the exotic Mango Chicken Drumettes and the Guava Ribs; the fun and easy-to-make Corn Pizza; the popular Bacon Croqueta, and the always sweet and tasty Cranberry Churros. Visit www.DosCulturasMuchaFrescura.com for everything you need to know on how to create these yourself!

They were absolutely delicious! @MahatmaRiceUSA was live with us and talked about how easy it is to create #HomemadeGourmet meals with their rice!

The recipes we created were simple to make, but full of flavor and so yummy, which is why cooking with @MahatmaRiceUSA is so great! @DukeOfYolk did a great job of recreating @MahatmaRiceUSA's recipes.

Last night (9/15) we were pleased to welcome back @BuitoniUSA¬†as our #Foodiechats sponsor! Our theme for the night was “Think Outside the Box.”

Since 1827, @BuitoniUSA¬†has been inspiring home cooks with its freshly made pasta & sauces. Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, there’s no better backdrop for the season’s best produce than freshly made pasta.

image

@BuitoniUSA¬†believes great meals don’t have to be complicated, pretentious or slaved over. And quick meals don’t have to come from a box. A few fresh ingredients, a little olive oil, a dash of creativity and some freshly made pasta can make for a delicious meal any night of the week. Fresh, simple meals keep life from being stale.¬†

There’s no better comfort food than pasta, so we loved getting to Think Outside the Box with¬†@BuitoniUSA!

image

There’s no better cure for a mid-week slump than a Special Edition #Foodiechats. Today 9/10 we celebrated #NationalRiceMonth with our sponsor @EatUSRice. Our theme for the chat was Reach for Rice, and our community loved talking about this staple!

Did you know that eighty-five percent of the rice Americans consume is grown in the USA? 
Rice farmers in Arkansas, California, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Texas produce an abundance of short, medium, and long grain rice, as well as organic and specialty rices including jasmine, basmati, Arborio, red aromatic, and black japonica. So when you want to eat local, think rice! 

U.S. rice is sustainably grown and has a positive impact on the environment. Rice fields create critical wetland habitat for many species of birds, mammals, and reptiles. Without rice farming, wetland environments would be drastically reduced. 
image

One question during the chat was “Rice is a global staple. Share your family‚Äôs favorite rice dish handed down from generation to generation.”

,  and  make some killer dishes!

image

image

image

One question we learned a lot during was “What‚Äôs your foolproof method for cooking rice?”

,  and  had really good tips!

image

image

image

We talked leftovers during Question 2, which was “None of us can afford to throw out leftovers. What do you do with leftover rice?”

We took note of how ,  and  use their leftovers!

image

Thank you so much @EatUSRice for a fun Special Edition #Foodiechats. We look forward to celebrating National Rice Month by trying lots of new recipes!
