Overview

If you like to explore the foods of the world, then you like rice. The ancient Sanskrit word for rice translates as sustainer of the human race. Today the little grain plays just as big a role: More than half of the world's cuisines are shaped around rice. • As sublime and elemental as a steaming bowl of plain rice might be, rice really comes alive in its more robust and complex uses. Of these there is a glorious abundance—pilafs from the Mediterranean and Middle East, curries from India and the Caribbean, stir-fries from East Asia, risottos from Italy, and more.

    Quick and Delicious

    The recipes in this book are varied, simple to make and absolutely delicious. There are no no super-specialty ingredients which means all of the recipes are absolutely accessible. Cuban Black Beans and Rice is a staple in our house. Being vegan and gluten-free, this cookbook is a godsend. Good section on the basics of cooking rice and some interesting cultural tidbits about rice around the world.
