The other fine rice dishes were: Shrimp in Rice – Letty Hernandez, Turkish Rice – Carolina Zapata, Rice Pudding with Caramel Sauce – Runway Bar, Spicy Jamaica Rice- Carolina Zapata, Mushroom Carrot Rice topped with Caribbean Chicken. -Runway Bar. We are grateful to all the cooks for their entries and for their support.
