My Rice Cooker Hero: Roger Ebert

When I was first experimenting with the rice cooker--just a few months ago--I was lucky enough to find Roger Ebert's blog on the wonders of "the pot." I was thrilled to see that he had a book coming out. A good writer and a good cook--all in one cookbook.

Here's an article from the New York Times.

And here is his book: only three more weeks.

I started with the rice cooker to help my daughter negotiate the challenges of cooking in a stoveless dorm suite. Now I use the rice cooker at least three times a week. And I have a stove! I love the rice cooker because it is CHEAP, EASY TO USE, SAFE, FORGIVING.

I know I will love the book. What's your favorite cookbook?


see you there! said...

So far I've resisted buying a rice cooker. I'm really out of room for small appliances. I'm going to look for the book at the library tho. Maybe I'll become a convert.

Wow. I don't know if I need to buy a rice cooker, but I've spent the last half hour browsing Ebert's blog.

Dang! Upstaged by Roger Ebert! That's amazing.

@Darla-I've bought two applainces in the last 10 years: a rice cooker and an immersion blender. They are both cheap...and my most used appliances. Maybe you can borrow one from a friend and test drive?

@Shelley--Isn't he great?

@Funny--I found his blog before I ever thought of doing one myself. He's just great.
