The Foods We Eat series tells you all about the different foods we put on our table each week. The books tell you how the foods are grown or reared, how they are prepared and processed and how they are transported to a shop near you.
In Rice, we follow the story of this vital staple food. We start from the flooded paddy fields where it is grown - how they are ploughed, planted and harvested. Threshing, drying and milling are also covered, before the rice is delivered to shops all over the world.
There is a handy map, showing the places where rice is grown and a deliciously simple rice recipe to follow. Fast Food boxes contain morsels of interesting facts about rice.
