When my first book came out it created a good deal of favorable comment from people who wanted to cook rice dishes and succeed. The traditionalists, however, reacted against some of my techniques, saying, “He has taken too many short cuts. People who like cooking are prepared to spend all day doing so.” Unfortunately, these people are few and far between and the number is getting fewer every day. This method of boiling rice was criticized, but I have yet to find a better method. Even my Chinese greengrocer uses it now!
