The Adventures of Fat Rice: Recipes from the Chicago Restaurant Inspired by Macau Review

Fat rice square

This book was written by Abraham Conlon and Adrienne Lo, co-owners and chefs of Fat Rice Restaurant and their former sous chef Hugh Amano. It provides authentic recipes that capture the unique flavors of food prepared in Macau, China. Its heritage was formed from the many world travelers crossing through the area, creating a culinary fusion of Chinese, Portuguese, and Malaysian cooking.

Even though the cookbook has a comic-strip feel to it, it presents a vivid picture of the history and culture of Macau. Beware there is small print, long recipes so wear your glasses and plan ahead - the end product is definitely worth it!

Jason logsdon headshot This article is by me, Jason Logsdon. I'm an adventurous home cook and professional blogger who loves to try new things, especially when it comes to cooking. I've explored everything from sous vide and whipping siphons to pressure cookers and blow torches; created foams, gels and spheres; made barrel aged cocktails and brewed beer. I have also written 10 cookbooks on modernist cooking and sous vide and I run the website.
