Seductions of Rice

Seductions of Rice by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid has basic instructions on how to cook lots of different types of rice at the beginning of each chapter. I didn't list any of those here. Three stars is for recipes that are wonderful, two for good ones (or maybe ones that are more time-consuming, but still tasty), and one for ones I wouldn't bother with again. Here are my links to their other cookbooks: Flatbreads and Flavors, Hot Sour Salty Sweet, and HomeBaking.If you've made anything from this or any of these other cookbooks, I'd love it if you left a comment about it.

  1. Thanks for the link on Poetosphere. Unfortunately I can't get the mother lode link to come up - or the map one. Did you have success?
