Celebrate September's National Rice Month With Grains That Do a Body Good

Zojirushi America Promotes Healthy Living and Grain Consumption Through Education and National Promotions

​September is National Rice Month and Zojirushi is a sponsor of the LUCKYRICE Paddy in New York City and has also teamed up with USA Rice Federation to support their current rice promotion initiatives. Zojirushi has been producing rice cookers for over 45 years, and making technological advancements all the while. From short grain to long grain, brown rice to sushi rice and even quinoa, Zojirushi rice cookers are versatile and the perfect kitchen companion. Studies show that most Americans are eating less than the recommended allowance of healthy grains and with a Zojirushi rice cooker, it’s easy to cook great grains.

One of Zojirushi’s main goals is to educate the consumer about rice cooking techniques, such as choosing the right grain and properly rinsing rice before cooking. On Sept. 26, Zojirushi is hosting a media-only rice education seminar and sushi class with award-winning chef and author Hiroko Shimbo. This media event will allow attendees to have an interactive experience learning how to make sushi and other rice cooking techniques. The night’s festivities also include the LUCKYRICE Feast, a night market where partnering chefs will honor the culinary diaspora of rice dishes, which is open to the public.

In addition to the celebration, Zojirushi has partnered with USA Rice in providing rice cooker prizes for several of their promotions in September. From gifting commercial rice cookers to the winning chefs at an annual food & wine festival competition to providing cookers to the chefs on the USA Rice food service tour to participating in a month-long social media campaign giveaway, the Zojirushi and USA Rice partnership is a natural and mutually beneficial alliance.
