The Rice Sommelier
The Rice Sommelier
Rice is life. For our debut episode, we speak to Momoko Nakamura, aka the Rice Girl, a woman on a mission to bring naturally farmed Japanese rice to the rest of the world. In Japan alone, there are over 200 varietals of rice grown throughout the country—from the snowy northern islands to the Ryukus with their subtropical climate. Through her rice subscription service, she sources directly from farmers and educates rice lovers on the traditional Japanese seasonal calendar by delivering 24 sub-seasons of hand-selected rice.
