Around the world in a bowl of rice: Is My Blog Burning? 4th edition

BlogBurningRice

I have been talking with Alberto about hosting Is My Blog Burning? for a while, and finally decided the time is right for this. Please join us in the newest edition of Is My Blog Burning? on Sunday May 23th. The theme of this one is “Around the world in a bowl of rice”.

A bit of history, in case you've been living behind a mountain and have not yet heard of Is My Blog Burning? :-) It came from a simple yet brilliant idea conceived by our Alberto of Il Forno. The first edition of IMBB was in February, the theme was Soup. Alberto's idea drew participation from far and wide, with food bloggers and none-food bloggers alike from Europe, America, and as far away as South East Asia joining in.

The idea caught on, and has since become a semi-monthly affair, which has so far included a Tartine edition, hosted by the delightful Clotilde of Chocolate and Zucchini, and a Cake Walk, hosted by my girl Renee of Shiokadelicious.

Each IMBB? edition affords us a glimpse into the complexity and diversity that is our world. From Durian Cake in Singapore to the omnipresent Tartine of Paris, we celebrate both the difference and the interconnectedness in our lives.

Having grown up in Thailand, rice has long been the center of my culinary experience. It is also one of the most ubiquitous grains in the world, taking part in cuisines everywhere from the Italian risotti, to Senegalese Ceebu Jën (red rice), and to Thai Jasmine rice.

Now it is your turn. Make us a rice dish that you remember fondly from childhood, or invent a creative one of your own. Move us all a little closer to one another.

The rules, or guidelines, rather, are simple

The theme is Rice, make a dish that has rice as the star.
It can be someone else's recipe that you love, or your very own creation, only please give credit when one is due.
The dish can be made at any time, but please post your result on your (or your friend's) blog on Sunday May 23th.
Photos and recipes are highly appreciated.
Please leave a comment to let me know of your participation, and provide a link to your fantastic rice creation.

I am honored to be hosting this newest edition, and I hope you join us.

Burn, baby, burn!
