To celebrate National Rice Week, UNCLE BEN’S® are delighted to announce that the winner of the UNCLE BEN’S® Best Rice Dish 2017 competition is Rob Maidment from Simpsons Lane Academy, West Yorkshire!

The competition, which gave school caterers the chance to win 6 months free supply of UNCLE BEN’S® rice plus a brand new Kitchen Aid, invited caterers to create a delicious and unique rice dish, specifically designed to go onto their school menu during National Rice Week (18th-24th September). After an extremely tough judging process to decide the winning recipe, it was Rob’s ‘Italian Chicken and Courgette Rice’ dish, which really stood out presenting him with the first place prize!
