Krug x Rice

Since the dawn of civilisation, humankind has revelled in nature’s nourishing gifts and sought ways to amplify their beauty, understanding that true craftsmanship is born from simplicity and a connection to terroir. A cornerstone of Krug’s savoir-faire, individuality is the art of understanding that every plot of vines, as one wine, is in itself a single ingredient. Each year, the House of Krug honours this philosophy by paying tribute to a humble single ingredient and the many pleasures it can reveal when paired with a glass of Krug Grande Cuvée or Krug Rosé.

In 2022, the House of Krug celebrates a global symbol of sustenance and vitality, the culinary chameleon we call rice. A unifying staple, the very element that the Ming Dynasty used in the mortar binding the bricks of the Great Wall of China, today nourishes half the world’s population. Versatile and charismatic, it is the backbone of emblematic national recipes everywhere, as comfortable in the spotlight as it is in a supporting role. By nature, an invitation calling for diversity on the plate, rice is a mirror of the human gastronomic adventure throughout the ages.

Rice reminds me of traveling – paella in Spain, risotto in Italy, sushi in Japan – an opportunity to discover different cultures through gastronomy. Beneath the surface of an elegant rice dish, there is great skill that you may not see, for example how it is grown or prepared. Depending on the technique and style of the Chef, it will not have the same expression.
