Additional Details

Description: This award-winning book -- by authors who are squarely on the side of the home cook -- will bring ease and variety and fun back into your kitchen. To create this book, IACP and James Beard award- winning authors Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid traveled to the major rice-eating regions of the world and experienced firsthand both the staggering array of foods that traditionally accompany rice and dozens of varieties of rice with unimaginable subtleties of taste. In Seductions of Rice, they bring it all home with hundreds of delectable dishes from the world's greatest rice cuisines, illuminated by stories, insights, and photographs. Chinese stir-fries served with steaming rice, smoky Carolina low-country pulaos, Japanese sushi, Indian thorans, Thai salads, Turkish pilafs, and Italian risottos are shared not just as recipes, but as time-honored traditions. 

But Seductions of Rice is more than a collection of fabulous recipes surrounded by a wealth of precious information. It is more than enthralling photographs taken by the authors of people and places, many of which we can barely imagine. It is a "new" way of putting food on the table that is as old as the ages. 

You will marvel at the way of rice; how food this simple can taste this good and be so satisfying: Thai sticky rice with grilled beef salad, Indian basmati with curry, Cuban black beans and rice, Louisiana gumbo, Persian kebabs with saffron-tinted rice, Spanish paella, Mexican rice pudding. More than two hundred recipes from around the world attest to the adaptability of this endlessly appealing food. Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid understand our yen for these vibrant flavors and have written a book that satisfies our every craving.
