A country rich in ethnic diversity, the UK is undoubtedly one of the greatest countries in the world for food.

In celebration of this, as part of National Rice Week, Tropical Sun hosted a rice tasting event at the Wanis International Food headquarters in Leyton, East London.

On offer to attendees, three delicious international rice dishes made with Tropical Sun’s famous Easy-Cook USA Rice.

Notable guests at the tasting including EastEnders actress Anne Mitchell and Nollywood actress Judith Akuta, enjoyed Ghanaian waakye, Jamaican rice n peas and Indian pulao – and left with Tropical Sun goodie bags in hand. 

“It was great to be in the sun sharing rice dishes with friends” said Paul Harrison, Tropical Sun’s Head of Community. “Not many people know the USA grows rice, but people certainly love our American rice when they try it” he added. 

At The Phoenix, we sure hope that Tropical Sun send us some invites for next year’s rice tasting!
