It is a fascinating introduction tells the story of rice cultivation and the myths and legends that surround this supremely important food crop.

This book opens with an introduction to different types of rice and the many products made from it, and takes a close look at how it is grown and harvested, the etiquette of eating it, and its history since the early days of cultivation in South-east Asia 8000 years ago. The recipes that follow cover every way of cooking rice, in an international tour, from an Indian biryani to a Middle Eastern pilaff, and from Cajun jambalaya to Spanish paella. Classic rice recipes sit alongside contemporary dishes, with a special emphasis on the risotto.
