Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Owen, an Indonesian-born food writer and cookbook author who now lives in England, includes a lengthy introductory section covering rice and history and politics, cultivation, and even the myths and folklore associated with this popular staple grain. This is followed by 200 recipes from a wide variety of international cuisines. Many of these dishes are indeed exotic and will be unfamiliar to American readers; some are somewhat complicated or time-consuming, but the instructions are well written and the headnotes informative. Marie Simmons's Rice, the Amazing Grain ( LJ 12/91) includes dozens of simpler recipes, but most libraries will want Owen's more unusual collection as well.
