As part of our efforts to understand the rise of pesto flavor, we talked to our colleagues at the New York Times Food Lab to find out how it’s spreading around the country.

While we still don’t have definitive numbers, we do know that pesto flavored rice has been hitting restaurants and bars across the country, as well as in places like Australia, China, India, and South Africa.

While it’s no secret that rice is an important ingredient in Chinese dishes, the growing popularity of pestos, which are made with a mix of pestoes, pesto flakes, and pestol, is making pesto flavors more popular across the globe.
