From the James Beard Cookbook of the Year Award-winning authors of Flatbreads and Flavors and Hot Sour Salty Sweet comes the paperback edition of what Cookbook Digest calls the perfect book on rice. It is a beautiful, comprehensive, and altogether fascinating overview of this ancient grain.
With a depth of passion and experience and an ability to embrace and convey richness of place and taste, Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid embarked on an excursion to find the world’s most essential and satisfying food. Along the way, they experienced firsthand dozens of varieties of rice that offer unimaginable subtleties of taste, as well as a staggering array of foods to accompany them, all providing simple ways to get flavor and variety on the table.
SEDUCTIONS OF RICE is the glorious result: two hundred easy-to-prepare dishes from the world’s great rice cuisines, illuminated by stories, insights, and more than two hundred photographs of people, places, and wonderful food.
