In this essential book about the world’s most essential food, Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid travelled to the world’s major rice-eating regions and experienced first-hand dozens of varieties of rice, as well as the staggering array of foods that traditionally accompany them. In Seductions of Rice, they bring it all home in fabulous recipes and precious information, as well as an enthralling photographic journey of people and places. You will marvel at how food this simple can taste this good and be so satisfying.
