His new book explores the connection between enslaved Africans and rice
This looks like a very valuable addition to previous books on rice, namely Karen Hess’s Carolina Rice Kitchen (University of South Carolina Press) and Jeffrey Alford/ Naomi Duguid’s Rice, but from a new perspective.
Thank you both. Looks delicious and the info. (book and series) quite interesting. One thing, though: I always think that promoting the use of rice should have at least a comment about the arsenic content that can be problematic (this is science-based fact). Too many are unaware of what they can do to mitigate it some and take better care of themselves/loved ones. An internet search can be illuminating.
