About the Author:

Sri Owen is a highly respected cook, a popular lecturer and the author of several award-winning cookbooks, including Indonesian Regional Food and Cookery, which was awarded the Langhe Ceretto Prize for the best recipe book and was shortlisted for a Julia Child Award. She lives in London.

From Booklist:

Rice every which way, from cultivation to cooking, is explored in food writer Owen's all-about compendium. A good portion of her book is devoted to whetting the appetite--specifically, by her in-depth research on the physical and nutritional properties of the species sativa, its agricultural impact, the cultural myths surrounding rice, and a worldview of this grain's importance. Then she moves on to the recipes, more than 200 of them, all gathered and tested with an eye not to trendiness but to traditional tastes in any country. She's very precise in helping cooks to prepare to tackle her instructions; she gives generic directions--including quantity, texture, and washing and cooking techniques--before presenting each recipe, each one of which is then followed by descriptive lists of ingredients and other culinary methods such as dicing and blanching. Both familiar and exotic dishes, most of them easy to cook, are included: among them, Greek dolmas, chicken and hot sausage gumbo, pork vindaloo, Korean bibimbab, pumpkin risotto, and black rice sorbet.
