This award winning eBook describes the first meetings of a traditional rice farmer, his family and a young visitor from a western city. Spanning the course of a single day and punctuated by discussions of what constitutes a deeply fulfilling life, the wise rice farmer gently guides the young visitor to that sacred place we all instinctively care for and hold dear - our own heart. Lucky Rice is a positive and upbeat story that whispers the origins of authentic spiritual practice to all who care to listen. Excerpt From “Lucky Rice.” “Let me tell you big secret, Mister Tim” said the rice farmer, leaning over and whispering so only I could hear. “My job is to grow the rice! Yet, She does it all. It just happens automatically from Her side. "Sunshine comes with light and warmth. Clouds bring rain. Mud gives nourishment. "They all help me to grow rice. “Why they come? Why they come together to help me?” asked the rice farmer. I didn’t know the answer. “I don’t think anybody knows,” I said as I shook my head. The rice farmer leaned back into his chair and said, “I have thought about this a lot. “The only answer I have is the well-being of billions of people is very important to Her. Rice gives life. No rice no life,” as his words trailed off into silence. And then the rice farmer said something that I will never forget.” “She sends her rice out of love. Our rice is a reflection of Her divinity.” We all sat in silence for a moment. We could feel his heart. “Knowing we have this help releases me from worry and discontent,” he said. “I realize if I do my part, She will do Her part and rice will grow. Being satisfied with this simplicity leads to my composure,” said the rice farmer. “I need to be free of worry,” I said to myself. “Do you think Mother would extend Her gifts to someone like me if I am not growing rice?” I asked...

With 100 recipes, this is the first book to explore the vibrant food culture of Macau—an east-meets-west melting pot of Chinese, Portuguese, Malaysian, and Indian foodways—as seen through the lens of the cult favorite Chicago restaurant, Fat Rice. An hour’s ferry ride from Hong Kong, on the banks of the Pearl River in China, lies Macau—a modern, cosmopolitan city with an unexpected history. For centuries, Macau was one of the world’s greatest trading ports: a Portuguese outpost and crossroads along the spice route, where travelers from Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and mainland China traded resources, culture, and food. The Adventures of Fat Rice is the story of how two Chicago chefs discovered and fell in love with this fascinating and, at least until now, unheralded cuisine. With dishes like Minchi (a classic Macanese meat hash), Po Kok Gai (a Portuguese-influenced chicken curry with chouriço and olives), and Arroz Gordo (if paella and fried rice had a baby), now you, too, can bring the eclectic and wonderfully unique—yet enticingly familiar—flavors of Macau into your own kitchen.

With the incomparable vision and breathtaking detail that brought his now-classic Mars trilogy to vivid life, bestselling author KIM STANLEY ROBINSON boldly imagines an alternate history of the last seven hundred years. In his grandest work yet, the acclaimed storyteller constructs a world vastly different from the one we know.... The Years of Rice and Salt It is the fourteenth century and one of the most apocalyptic events in human history is set to occur–the coming of the Black Death. History teaches us that a third of Europe’s population was destroyed. But what if? What if the plague killed 99 percent of the population instead? How would the world have changed? This is a look at the history that could have been–a history that stretches across centuries, a history that sees dynasties and nations rise and crumble, a history that spans horrible famine and magnificent innovation. These are the years of rice and salt. This is a universe where the first ship to reach the New World travels across the Pacific Ocean from China and colonization spreads from west to east. This is a universe where the Industrial Revolution is triggered by the world’s greatest scientific minds–in India. This is a universe where Buddhism and Islam are the most influential and practiced religions and Christianity is merely a historical footnote. Through the eyes of soldiers and kings, explorers and philosophers, slaves and scholars, Robinson renders an immensely rich tapestry. Rewriting history and probing the most profound questions as only he can, Robinson shines his extraordinary light on the place of religion, culture, power, and even love on such an Earth. From the steppes of Asia to the shores of the Western Hemisphere, from the age of Akbar to the present and beyond, here is the stunning story of the creation of a new world.
