About Tastic

Tastic Parboiled Rice is the ultimate versatile comfort food. We all love a hot steaming bowl of rice accompanying our favourite chicken casserole or mom's homemade curry. That's why we at Tastic are very passionate about rice.

Our promise that Tastic Rice cooks perfectly every time is a promise that we have stood by with pride ever since our parboiled rice was introduced to South Africa and to your dinner table in 1961.

More on Rice

We think that you'll be interested in the story behind Tastic Rice's journey from the field to your dinner table.

The history of rice and its cultivation can be traced way back to about 2 800 BC when the Chinese emperor Sheng Namg issued a decree on rice planting. In recognition of the importance of rice to his people, annual rice ceremonies were established, some of which are still joyfully celebrated today.

    Measuring Honey/Syrup

    Rinse measuring spoons and cups in hot water before measuring out honey or syrup. The syrup will slip easily from the cup or spoon.

    Cooking with wine

    Never cook with any wine you wouldn't drink! You can substitute 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary leaves with 1 teaspoon of dried, but fresh is better. Try using a spray olive oil to coat your roasting pan.

    Cinnamon delight

    Put a stick of cinnamon in your pot when frying onions. It gives the onions a lovely flavour.

    Separating Eggs

    Eggs from the fridge are easier to separate than eggs at room temperature, so chill your eggs before trying to separate them.
