In "Lucky Rice," Danielle Chang, founder of the festival of the same name which brings night markets, grand feasts, and dumpling-making sessions to America's biggest cities feeds our obsession for innovative Asian cuisine through 100 recipes inspired by a range of cultures. Here, comfort foods marry ancient traditions with simple techniques and fresh flavors and include a few new classics as well: chicken wings marinated in hot Sichuan seasonings; sweet Vietnamese coffee frozen into pops; and one-hour homemade kimchi that transforms pancakes, tacos, and even Bloody Marys. With a foreword by Lisa Ling, this lushly photographed cookbook brings the fun and flavors of modern Asian cooking to your kitchen.
