Rice Craft

Yummy - Healthy - Fun to Make!


There's not a lunch box, birthday party, or afternoon snack that isn't made more delicious and fun with onigiri! These bite-size balls of rice can be made with favourite and nutritious ingredients, and are easily shaped and decorated to make animals, flowers and more. This book features more than 30 recipes for flavourful onigiri with a range of fillings as well as master recipes for cooking rice, plus extras to round out the meal: a miso soup to float the rice balls in, perfect soft eggs to wrap in rice, and pickled ginger to serve on the side. More than 20 colour photographs inspire new creations and teach kids and adults alike to make these creative treats.
