Review by Debbie Mazo


Archeological evidence suggests rice has fed humanity for more than 5,000 years. From China to the Nile Delta, this tiny grain has migrated across the continents, eventually arriving in the Western Hemisphere.

Here, you can browse through everything from the history of rice to how rice enhances the environment (rice acreage supplies valuable habitat for all types of animals from reptiles to birds to mammals). To keep you in the know, you can also check out the Rice FAQ for a list of the ten most commonly asked questions about rice.

Cooking the perfect rice is easy when you follow the advice in the Cooking section. From the top of your range to your microwave oven, How to Prepare Rice offers simple directions for stirring up tender, fluffy rice. You'll also find tips for making the perfect rice (including carefully measuring the amounts of rice and liquid and timing cooking accurately) and hints on rice storage.

No longer just a meal accompaniment, rice has now grabbed center stage. The Have a Rice Day Cafe features a diverse collection of recipes with clear instructions, serving suggestions, and nutritional content (some recipes also include a color photo).
