Pimp My Rice
Across continents, rice is the dramatic centerpiece of the table and at the heart of life. In Pimp My Rice, food writer, and chef Nisha Katona share recipes from her home kitchen and around the globe, from Pimped Rice Piri Piri to Beefed-Up Bibimbap and even Black Rice & Coconut Sorbet. Showcasing a rainbow of types and explaining how to cook them perfectly every time, Nisha takes the fear out of the world’s greatest cereal killer.
Nisha Katona is a rice evangelist. Why? It does not need peeling, it does not need soaking, it likes to be left to cook without a watchful gaze. It has an eternally long life, waiting long in dark cupboards, bidden to warm musky life when fridges are empty and potatoes are sullenly sprouting. Far from being an understudy, rice is the most virile, muscular weapon of mass construction in the busy working kitchen.
