Black Rice is a Side Dish in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!.

Description[edit | edit source]

Black rice, also known as "forbidden rice" or "emperor's rice" originates in ancient China, where it was forbidden to be eaten by anyone but the Emperor. At the time, it was believed that black rice possessed supernatural qualities that aided in giving the Emperor a long and healthy life.

This tradition of exclusivity lasted for hundreds of years, until a thief named Sheng Dong drunkenly broke into the emperor's pantry one night and stole ten sacks of black rice, which he then hid around the country. In the morning, Dong had no recollection of the previous night, including where the black rice was hidden. As a result, interrogating him proved fruitless for the Emperor's guards, who were forced to give up their search and report back that black rice now belonged to the people. Dismayed and disgusted at the thought of sharing food with commoners, the Emperor refused to eat any more black rice and lifted the ban, allowing everyone else to enjoy it from then on. The stolen rice was never reported found.

Today, the supernatural qualities of black rice are known as antioxidants.
