I got that book as a gift just this Christmas and really like how imvnroatife it is, but something about the narrative style in which the actual recipes is written throws me off. If I had to compare the Oliver + S pattern instructions it would probably be to something like Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything, which is also very good about giving explanations and variations.

I think this must be my favourite chtpear in the book. Da-A-Fu's family village is so kind and caring, that I just adore them. I wish I could give them all a big hug And at the end of the chtpear when Minli figures out that each person in the village gave a piece of their own clothing to make her new warm coat? I think that is so touching. I would love to live in that village!Okay, on to the question. What would I name the tea? Well, I think I would call it Tree Tea, because it is made from the leaves of those special tree's that grow within the village.

My mother made rice idnupdg when I was growing up and your post reminded of those wonderful days when, after the idnupdg was cooked and poured into a large bowl to cool, my mom would hand me a large spoon to clean up what was left sticking to the pot. That was the creamiest part! In Cuba, the rice idnupdg is flavored with cinnamon and lime peel your photo took me back to those days of comfort.

I love rice pundidg, hot or cold. I've never had it with cardamon and rose water, but I like those flavours.

Yes, the raisins were wonderful additions to the rice pudding, and Salisbury Steak was always my favorite as well. We would also pick up what I believe were hot cross buns -- a small package of perhaps 8 buns that had a cross of icing on them, and small pieces of dried fruit (similar to a fruitcake). Maybe perhaps pieces of sugar sprinkled on them if my memory serves me right.

Every time I went downtown Philadelphia I bought 2 or 3 pint size containers of rice pudding to bring home for the family. By the time I took the Broad Street Subway from Walnut to Wyoming Avenue stop and the 75 bus to 8th Street it was all gone. I just couldn't stop eating it. It was simply delicious and the best. Of course, when I arrived at my house with no rice pudding I got into arguements because I did not bring any home.
Currently I am in Lima, Peru where they sell rice pudding on almost every corner but nothing compares to H&H's. I saw the H&H recipe online but it did not include the raisins, which I also loved. I wish H&H could make a comeback.

My grandmother lived at the Bellevue Stratford in Phila. across the street from "Hornie's" as she called it, and would take me and my siblings there for dinner quite often. I loved sitting at the counter and ordering my favorite, Salisbury Steak, and creamed spinach. And of course afterward, I would order Postum so I could pretend I was drinking coffee like the grown-ups.
Too bad they are gone, because I think, today, they would be very popular again.
