Tamaki Farms Rice by Morihiro Onodera and Ichiro Tamaki This premium Japanese short grain rice is a type ofKoshishikari, a premium Japanese variety, developed by Michelin-awarded sushi chef, Morihiro "Mori" Onodera and rice master Ichiro Tamaki and grown in Uruguay.

The moisture retention and texture of each grain are superb, due to the ideal climate and water supply in Uruguay, in addition to the excellent quality of the seed, they are using.

It is perfectly chewy in texture and has subtle sweetness in flavor. For storage, we recommend using a tight-sealed container and keeping in a cool dark place.

About Mori

As a young boy, Mori worked on his family’s farm in the small town of Fujisawa, in Japan’s Northern Iwate Prefecture. He watched his grandmother grow different types of seasonal foods in order to prepare the household staples of rice, soy sauce, miso, Japanese pickles, and a variety of vegetables. Her traditional methods in handcrafting these foods made from local and seasonal ingredients influenced Mori’s philosophy during the years he trained as a sushi chef in Tokyo, and at seminal Los Angeles restaurants Katsu, R-23, Matsuhisa, Takao and Hatsuhana in NY. 

By the time he opened his first restaurant, Mori Sushi in Los Angeles, he was preparing many of the same handmade ingredients, harvesting his own locally grown rice and creating handmade pottery to be used in the restaurant. Mori’s interest in pottery developed from his exposure first to the Japanese artist Mineo Mizuno and later to Rosanjin Kitaoji, who created a new language for the pairing of pottery with food. Rosanjin believed that pottery and food are akin to a beautiful, well-dressed woman. Or, to switch genders, that the “clothes make the man.” 

After selling Mori Sushi in 2011, Mori began creating handmade pottery for several Michelin Guide restaurants in Los Angeles, and more recently The Restaurant at Meadowood in Napa where he prepared a dinner for the annual 12 Days of Christmas in 2012. 

Mori’s belief that rice is one of the most important foods to cultivate properly, led to his partnership with rice farmer, Ichiro Tamaki. Tamaki farms in Uruguay will harvest its first crop in May of 2013 and will be available for distribution world-wide. 

For Mori, a simple and balanced approach is the best way to create good food. 

Good food = happiness.

Size Chart

Marimekko Sizing

Size charts can help you to determine your own size. When you order clothes, it is worth remembering that using a tape measure can help you to ensure that the clothes are a good fit. This will help you to avoid returning clothes unnecessarily. The pictures show where you should take measurements. The measurements on the size chart are fixed body measurements in inches. The measurements are for normal body shapes (the basis is the C measurement).
 

A – Collar:
The collar size is measured by placing the tape measure around the neck and placing the index finger between the tape measure and the throat. This measurement dictates the shirt size.

B – Bust:
The bust size is measured from the highest point of the bust when a bra is worn.

C – Waist:
The waist size is measured around the narrowest part of the waist.

D – Hip:
The hip measurement is taken from the broadest part of the hip.

E – Inside leg:
The inside leg measurement is taken from the crotch to the floor. Please note that the inside leg measurement of trousers is often provided in the product description.
