"Among the staple foods most welcomed on southern tables--and on tables around the world--rice is without question the most versatile. As Michael Twitty observes, depending on regional tastes, rice may be enjoyed at breakfast, lunch, and dinner; as main dish, side dish, and snack; in dishes savory and sweet. As Twitty's fifty-one recipes deliciously demonstrate, rice stars in Creole, Acadian, soul food, Low Country, and Gulf Coast kitchens, as well as in the kitchens of cooks from around the world who are now at home in the South. Exploring rice's culinary history and African diasporic identity, Twitty shows how to make the southern classics as well as international dishes--everything from Savannah Rice Waffles to Ghanaian Crab Stew"-- Provided by publisher.
