Stories and Recipes from Night Markets, Feasts, and Family Tables
“A beautiful homage to Asian cuisine, Lucky Rice celebrates both classic and inspired dishes, many of which prove just how universal a bowl of rice is. A special thank-you to Danielle Chang for taking us around the world through her fabulous and inspired recipes.”
“Lucky Rice reminds me of my time in Bangkok, Singapore, and Hong Kong. The spicy, addictive flavors of Danielle Chang’s recipes transport me on a culinary journey where I get to revisit and rediscover the exotic and aromatic foods of the East.”
In Lucky Rice, Danielle Chang, founder of the festival of the same name—which brings night markets, grand feasts, and dumpling-making sessions to America’s biggest cities—feeds our obsession for innovative Asian cuisine through 100 recipes inspired by a range of cultures.
Here, comfort foods marry ancient traditions with simple techniques and fresh flavors—and include a few new classics as well: chicken wings marinated in hot Sichuan seasonings; sweet Vietnamese coffee frozen into pops; and one-hour homemade kimchi that transforms pancakes, tacos, and even Bloody Marys. With a foreword by Lisa Ling, this lushly photographed cookbook brings the fun and flavors of modern Asian cooking to your kitchen.
Danielle Chang fan and Wall Street Journal columnist Ralph Gardner Jr. explains why he’s crazy for kimchi as he helps the LUCKY RICE author make a batch of the Korean dish: http://www.wsj.com/articles/crazy-for-kimchi-in-the-city.
