I recall eating a meal in Italy that I THINK was just rice, canned tuna, and white beans drizzled in olive oil. Is this a real "dish"? I've put those four ingredients together and it doesn't taste the same. And it's a really monochromatic meal. Anyone have any thoughts on the "real" dish, or if not, how to spice up the one I remember? It was in Parma.

Can I successfully
cook brown and white rice together? The plan is to use a steamer with a 50/50 mix of the 2 varieties.
If so, could you suggest a methodology?
I prefer the brown, but I have a partial bag of white that I don't want to throw away.

How can I improve my cold grain/bean/wild rice/etc salads? They are either too vinegary or too bland, and generally not as good as it seems they should be. [more inside]

Steamed Rice with what? I'd like to use my rice cooker more often. I'm looking for recipes that take five to ten minutes that I can add / pour over / serve next to my steamed rice. Bonus: What are some things I can add to the rice cooker as the rice is being cooked to make it a one pot meal?

I love my sister and my sister loves RICE. Do you have any good recipes for her? Asian--Chinese/Korean/Indian/Pakistani/Thai/etc.--recipes preferred. The rice can be prepared any which way--flavoured, fried, with sauce over plain rice, whatever. (Previously

My best friend and I are sake (rice wine) lovers. Not lovers, because he's a guy. And ugly. But he's a great guy and I'd like to buy him some top quality traditional sake and a set of cups and bottle. [more inside]

I wish to end my barbaric method of cooking rice in a saucepan. I'm stuck between the Zojirushi NS-LAC05
, and NS-TGC10
. I've checked the product comparisons
. Will I miss not having "Extended Keep Warm" - and how is that different from the already-present "Automatic Keep Warm" anyway? What in the world is this "Rinse-Free" and "Sweet Rice" settings, and will I miss them? Is "Cake" decent? Why is picking a rice cooker so complicated? [more inside]

Is fried rice recycled at sketchy restaurants? Not as in leftover from the previous day (which is certainly true) but recycled as in made from rice leftover from other patrons?

I'm making some chicken chipotle and Mexican rice for a party this Saturday. I'd like to prepare the food about an hour before people arrive, and I'm looking for the best way to keep everything warm without drying it out. (I don't have a proper chafing dish -- just a buffet set with uncovered aluminum pans and sternos underneath.)

I am looking for a website (not a specific one) that has a list of quotes from members of the Bush administration, with the quotes now obviously misleading, incorrect, and or lies.
This is the kind of thing I am looking for.

I have never liked the taste of brown rice, but I would like to try to develop a taste for it, since it is so good for you. Is there something that I can add to the rice to make it taste different (and possibly better?) Other suggestions for cooking or preparing the rice, besides the standard are appreciated.

I have been told by a few people something that I don't really believe and I would appreciate confirmation of its untruth, They have said that Condoleeza Rice referred to GW Bush as her husband - in some interview or in answer to some question. Could this be true?

I'm cooking roast duck for my family on Christmas (actually Dysfunctional Family Christmas on the 21st.) I like to serve a wild rice/kashi mixture on the side. However, every time I make the dish it lacks flavor
. It has a nice bite to it, what with the wild rice and other grains, but it's missing something. I usually toss some garlic cloves in, I've used broth instead of water, etc. Still, it comes out bland. How can I zip it up? [more inside]
