Media Reviews
Most of us have heard of long grain or short grain rice but what about scented rice, Louisiana popcorn, baldo or Australian Calrose? There are more than 2000 different types, with a proportion of the more common to be found here along with the differences between long, medium and short grain clearly explained. Accompanied by a range of internationally inspired rice dishes, sumptuously illustrated with tantalising colour photographs, it shows this small grain's vast, global diversity. Used for more than just an accompaniment to Chinese or Indian food, it is displayed here as ice-cream, cakes, grilled kebab-style, paellas, risottos, biryanis and sushi. Cooking techniques and utensils, storage advice and where to buy are also covered making this a handy reference for anyone normally wary of cooking rice or to an expert rice cooker looking for more innovative ways of using this grain of life . - Lucy Watson
