Our Arroz Bomba or Bomba Rice by Bayo is from the Ebre Delta in the North of Spain. Bomba rice is one of the most appreciated varieties of rice among chefs around the world, the reason being that its cooking allows a variety of cooking methods and cooking liquids while always guaranteeing the success of the desired dish. Bomba rice grains remain separate and are very resilient to overcooking.
Bomba rice is a short grain rice which expands in width rather than length as it absorbs liquids. Whereas Arborio and other risotto style rices are valued for their creaminess, bomba rice absorbs three times its volume in liquids yet the grains remain distinct. It is the perfect choice for paella.
