I just looked online, and my library has this book. I requested home delivery of it - so now I get to try this cookbook out, without buying. Hopefully I'll finally get some good use out of my rice cooker!
When you start to cook, as when you begin to live, you think that the point is to improve the technique until you end up with something perfect, and that the reason you haven’t been able to break the cycle of desire and disillusion is that you haven’t yet mastered the rules. Then you grow up, and you learn that that’s the game.
