Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Sweet and dark, with exotic notes of tumeric and ginger alongside the ultra-ripe blackcurrant and cherry flavors. Soft and fleshy, this easygoing New World wine is a steal.

Fresh and grapey, with some black cherry and sweet chocolate notes as well. Not as rich as the previous vintages, but still a great value. Drink now.
