Cooking Rice with an Italian Accent!: The Grain at Home in Every Course of Italy's Meals
Giuseppe Orsini
031233902X
September 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
From Radicchio Risotto to Almond and Rice Pudding, the retired priest–cum–cookbook author offers several courses' worth of creative recipes in this homage to rice, which, he points out, has long been a staple of Italian cooking. After all, "Rice is the pasta of Northern Italy." The author provides a brief history of rice's place in Italian culinary history—in the ninth century, Arabs brought the grain to Sicily, where it became a favorite with the wealthy—as well as a helpful list of cooking terms, instructions for determining the sex of an eggplant (males are less bitter than females) and the provenance of his recipes—many of which he sampled during visits to Italy. Humorous asides (e.g., Glutton's Risotto will test your fortitude in the face of the eponymous sin) are balanced by...

Meloni T. Jennings, Scottsdale, AZ
"I just want to thank you again for your books. You infuse such enthusiasm into your writing. I can feel the pages smiling at me. Your fasting book inspired me to begin my health renewal program which I can truly say is the best thing I've ever done for myself. At 48, I am more active, more alert, more flexible than my 30 year old sister-in-law. Even my memory has improved and more unbelievable, my eyesight is slightly better, too. My sister-in-law wants to know what I'm taking. "Nothing!" That's the point! It's what I'm not taking! I never even considered fasting until I landed upon your book. I stopped after achieving 50 day--a true marathon. But now I'm religious about one day a week. Please put me on your mailing list for your workshops in my area and any new book announcements. Again, a...

Paella!: Spectacular Rice Dishes from Spain
Penelope Casas
0805056238
May 1999
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Determined to rescue paella from what the author calls its "worldwide ignominy," Casas (Tapas) offers 58 enticingly authentic recipes, most drawn from Spain's eastern coast. Cooks weary of risotto, or those simply tired of all the stirring it entails, will be attracted to the intriguing combinations of flavors that can be achieved with this other Mediterranean approach to short-grained rice. The grain imported from Spain is best, says Casas, but Arborio is more than acceptableAand while a paella pan is similarly preferred, a shallow casserole dish also works well. Preparation is within easy reach for anyone: saut? ingredients briefly, add rice, add hot liquid, boil for several minutes, then pop in the oven to bake. Dishes include Scallop and Wild Mushroom Paella; Golden Rice with Shrimp and Fresh Tuna; Crusted...

One Grain of Rice: A Mathematical Folktale
Hitz Demi
059093998X
April 1997
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Exotic, beautiful, and instructive, this "mathematical folktale" by author-illustrator Demi emerged from her love of India. The narrative and the evocative illustrations combine to create a real sense of the culture and atmosphere of this romantic land. It's the story of Rani, a clever girl who outsmarts a very selfish raja and saves her village. When offered a reward for a good deed, she asks only for one grain of rice, doubled each day for 30 days. Remember your math? That's lots of rice: enough to feed a village for a good long time--and to teach a greedy raja a lesson.

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-4. A resourceful village girl outsmarts a greedy raja, turning a reward of one grain of rice into a feast for a hungry nation. Delicate paintings emblazoned with...


Wild Rice Cooking
Susan Carol Hauser
159228535X
Nov 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Wild rice, the upper Midwest's gift to gastronomy, used to be considered too rare, too exotic, and too expensive to cook in homes outside its native habitat. Today the grain is almost universally available, found in supermarkets in its pure state or mixed with white rice. Wild rice's crunchy texture and nutty flavor make it a gourmet's delight, far removed from its prehistoric role as the sustenance crop of the Ojibwa tribes, who harvested it from the lakes of what is now Minnesota. Hauser describes the different grades of wild rice available in stores and explains the best ways to cook each. Her recipes reflect elaborations that Minnesota home cooks and professional chefs have brought to wild rice, combining it with their European heritage to produce quiches, jambalayas, meat loaves, pilafs, risotti, and casseroles....


Heal Your Heart: The New Rice Diet Program for Reversing Heart Disease through Nutrition, Exercise, and Spiritual Renewal
Kitty Gurkin Rosati
0471157023
January 1997
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Duke University's rice diet program has been proven as a safe and fast method to reverse and prevent heart disease--the cause of 42 percent of all deaths in the U.S.--and also high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, and obesity. Dietitian Rosati, the program's nutrition director, outlines this challenging three-part program: an aggressive diet (low in fat, extremely low in salt, and at least initially vegetarian), moderate exercise, and a spiritual or emotional path of one's choice (not just stress management). The latter component, according to the author, gives the dieter the needed strength to change unhealthy lifestyles and comply with this rigorous plan. Complete, detailed discussions of nutrition basics, food labeling, grains and beans, herbs as a substitute for salt, and a selection of spiritual-emotional...

Marlene Anne Bumgarner
0312156014
September 1997
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Been itching to try out quinoa and amaranth, food of the Incan gods, or to reach back to pharaonic Egypt and beyond for the taste of spelt, progenitor of modern wheat? If so, Marlene Bumgarner's New Book of Whole Grains is the place to start. This is life at the bottom of the food pyramid, that glorious culinary domicile where all residents are allowed to eat all they want of whatever's on the shelf--whenever they want to eat it. Bumgarner encourages this behavior with 200 recipes, organized by grain, that utilize whole grains as side dishes, main courses, breads, desserts, and breakfast foods. First published in 1976, Bumgarner's whole-grains cookbook has withstood the test of time . The author has returned to her original material and updated recipes to reflect new ideas about salt and fat content, and she...


Risotto

Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
This volume comprises more than 100 creative variations on basic risotto, a rice dish from northern Italy. In addition to serving risotto as a first course in the Italian style, the authors suggest it as a side dish or as an entree when accompanied by bread and a salad or vegetable. These recipes derive from classic and new Italian cooking, as well as the authors' imaginations. Beginning with basic saffron risotto, Barrett and Wasserman work their way through cheese, vegetable, meat, fish, wine and even fruit-flavored dishes. Rice is combined with goat cheese, Gruyere, Camembert and ricotta, as well as with cabbage, zucchini blossoms or fresh mushrooms, cognac and cream. Seafood offerings include scallops, shrimp and mushrooms, squid and artichokes, and smoked salmon, while meat variations feature sweetbreads,...


Classic Indian Vegetarian and Grain Cooking
Julie Sahni
0688049958
November 1985
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
One might expect that this fine sequel to Sahni's Classic Indian Cooking covers a smaller subject than that earlier work. But since most Indians are vegetarians, and since they cook in a diversity of styles, this new volume in many senses gives a truer panorama of that nation's classic cuisine. After an exhaustive glossary of foodstuffs and spices that make up the Indian larder, Sahni launches into the recipes, which in a rare concession to Western ways are arranged course by course. There is much that even a devotee of Indian cooking will find new in the areas of fritters and griddle cakes, braised dishes, lentils, chutneys. Though the ingredients are often exotic, Sahni's directions for buying (a mail-order guide is included) and cooking are precise. She brings some of the subtler practices of one of the...

The Amazing World of Rice
Marie Simmons
0060938420
Dec 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Simmons, the author of a host of user-friendly cookbooks and the "Healthy Cooking" column in Bon Appetit, here puts to rest the stereotype of rice as a bland starch served alongside Asian food. For those who thought a rice cookbook could only be a treatise on 1950's-style rice salads or a primer on How to Boil Rice, this vibrant, multicultural collection of original recipes should come as a welcome treat. Simmons's range is broad: Black Bean Chipotle and Rice Soup with Cilantro Cream rubs shoulders with Lamb Kebabs on Persian-style golden rice, Curried Coconut Rice with Cauliflower, Butternut Squash, Green Beans, and Cashews, and Hoppin' John; she also concocts a vast array of risotto and paella variations. An intriguing rice glossary covers the relatively familiar territory of basmati, Arborio and jasmine and...

From Publishers Weekly
A compendium of every imaginable variation of a northern Italian staple, this volume, part of Williams-Sonoma's user-friendly cookbook series, is divided into six sections dedicated to different interpretations of risotto. The classics section delivers a Risotto with Mushrooms, heavy on the wild mushrooms and garlic, while the vegetable section offers a deep crimson-purple Risotto with Beets. The recipes, each accompanied by a close-up of a creamy-looking bowlful of rice, also include a luscious Risotto with Pesto and Shrimp and a rich wintertime Risotto with Lamb, Rosemary, and Olives. Dessert risottos such as Ricotta-Rice Tart and Chocolate Risotto are like rice pudding gone to heaven. Simple to follow and thoroughly idiot-proof, the cookbook even provides a few pages at the end marked "Risotto Basics," which...
