Bomba rice is known as the "king of paella rices" and for very good reason. Other rice will absorb around twice their volume in liquid, whilst bomba rice will absorb 3 times - so remember to adjust your liquid to rice quantities to around 3 to 1!
The rice expands in width like an accordion rather than longitudinally, as do other rice varieties, but still the grains remain distinct. This means that the rice is able to absorb even more of the succulent flavours of your paella stock, making that paella even more special. It is grown in the heart of the famous Albufera Natural Park, South-West of the city of Valencia, renown as the best areas in Spain for rice cultivation.
Our Bomba rice comes from ARROCERÍAS ANTONIO TOMÁS a company founded 40 years ago. Their Santo Tomas brand is recognised today as one of the premium brands in the market. Being located within the park itself they have a privileged relationship with the farmers. This along with continual monitoring and selection ensures the best quality rice is always able to be sourced.
The rice is presented in a traditional cloth bag.
How much rice do I use per person ?
For a "main course" portion use about 100g of dry rice per person. If it is more of a "tapas" size you need - eg it is part of a larger selection of dishes you are serving, use between 80g-85g of rice per person.

If you are serious about Paella you just have to use Bomba rice. This stuff is the best I've found and absolutely 10/10. Yes, it is a little more expensive but it is worlds apart from other paella rice. Don’t even think about using long-grain rice!As you may know, Bomba rice absorbs so much more stock, 3 times its own volume in fact. It keeps it’s bite and swells to a fantastic firm flavoursome grain.All you need to remember is 1:3 rice:stock by volume, add the rice after the stock and don’t stir it, the rest you can make up.You need to use a little less Bomba in your recipe than normal rice as it expands so much.
Just done my first paella for 70 freinds and family and everyone said how good it was. Rice comes in a great looking bag to impress your guests
As always prompt and no fuss delivery. Love using this rice as it has a great nutty texture, excellent paella once again. Thank you, wouldn't go anywhere else!
