Now, The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook unlocks the true potential of the rice cooker, an appliance invented in postwar Japan and used daily by millions throughout the world to prepare a staple food. Rice is the most popular grain on the planet, and there is an amazing array available on today's supermarket shelves, from basic long-grain American white rice and brown rice to short-grain Asian and European rices to truly exotic varieties such as Bhutanese red, Indian Kalijira, and Chinese black Forbidden Rice.
