From the bestselling authors of Hot Sour Salty Sweet, a paperback edition of their critically acclaimed cookbook about the humble grain of rice.
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.
Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid won their first James Beard Award with Flatbreads & Flavours in 1996. Seductions of Rice won the Cuisine Canada Cookbook Award in 1998. And in 2000 they won the James Beard Award again with their third book, Hot Sour Salty Sweet. Their work appears frequently in magazines in Canada and the US, including Gourmet, Bon Appétit and Food & Wine. They live in Toronto with their two sons.
