Fat Rice vs Godzilla vs Momofuku By A customer Fans of Lucky Peach magazine and cookbooks (Lucky Peach Presents 101 Easy Asian Recipes) will love the adventures of "Fat Rice" (he is the little rooster mascot fighting the Godzilla Clam on the front cover). The vibe is the same as those Chef David Chang efforts, and it is probably not too far from the truth to say that the style of this cookbook is an attempt to get onto the Lucky Peach bandwagon.These recipes are also primarily "asian", and focus on some of the oldest of fusion cooking from Macau, historically thought of as a blend of Portugese and Chinese cooking cultures. Now more clearly Chinese influenced than Portugal, these is still unmistakingly a unique Macau cooking niche that has some nice twists and variations. The chef of this book has a Chicao eatery based on the style. A short sampling: Portugese egg tarts, Zhu Pa Bao (pork chop buns), Leitao (garlicky suckling pig), and menus that feature asian influenced Portugese salt cod right next steamed ginger and scallion fish.A big book at over 300 pages, most of it is recipes and pictures, but there is also about a 15 page historical introduction, about another 15 pages on equipment and techniques, and the same for a helpful ingredient glossary. Have tried six recipes out and all have been great!So far our family ranks this cookbook about 1/2 a star higher than the aforemention David Chang like cookbooks Momofuku. I have no idea who the better chef is in real life for those who care about such things, but the instructions are much clearer, and while ome of the ingredients can be equally obscure, at least in these recipes you don't get the sense you are being sent on a wild goose (or duck) chase just for the sake of making something look complicated when it is not that integral to the dish. In the end we like all these cookbooks so no need to do trolling here, but for right now our favorite cookbook beats up your favorite cookbook. 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful.

Delightful and unexpected By xenoc Fascinating cookbook with really unique and surprising recipes. For many of the recipes, my impression before cooking them was "that can't be good" but magic happens and they so far have been uniformly delicious and a big hit with dinner guests. Very detailed and really fun instructions using techniques that are sometimes as unique as the recipes. The only challenge Ive had is that finding the ingredients is not simple even with Amazon and our local H-mart. 5-stars if I can locate all the needed ingredients. See all 19 customer reviews...
“What a captivating book! With it, I uncovered the roots of Portuguese cooking and the indelible mark it made on the world. I reveled in the beautiful way Portuguese blended with Chinese in the kitchens of Macau. But most of all, I discovered why the food at Chicago’s incredibly popular restaurant Fat Rice is so utterly delicious. This book opens up a whole new world of flavor!” — Rick Bayless, chef and owner of Frontera Grill, Topolobampo, and Xoco “When you read these recipes, it’s like you just found the secret ingredients that were buried away in a treasure chest somewhere in the Pearl River Delta. The Adventures of Fat Rice is a must-have for home (and Jupiter) chefs.” — Kool Keith, artist and rapper"Along with the book's visual pop, the evocative introduction and recipe headnotes full of history and stories makes this a cookbook worth owning as a compelling read."- EATER NATIONAL"Chances are you’re unfamiliar with Macanese cuisine, from the small peninsula of Macau near Hong Kong. But spend an evening with this comic book-cookbook hybrid, and you’ll be hooked on the fare that makes theChicago restaurant of the same name so beloved."- TASTING TABLE "Chicago restaurant Fat Rice draws its recipes from Macau, a port city that blends the flavors of the Portuguese who once settled there with the foods of the various Asian traders who moved through the area. The result is a punchy, bold cuisine of bacalao and grilled seafood, noodles of all shapes and size, and the titular fat rice (arroz gordo).And did I mention Fat Rice is a comic book? Yup: throughout the cookbook are step-by-step, comic book–style instructions for making crispy rice or stir-frying fat noodles, as well as comic book covers depicting Fat Rice dishes like Crazy Squid and Pato de Cabidela (duck cooked in blood)."- EPICURIOUS"Stan Lee and other comic book creators can literally eat their hearts out, as the format of the traditional cookbook continues to evolve. The latest to challenge the standard: The Adventures of Fat Rice."- EATER"This is a fun food, so it is only fitting that the cookbook to come out of that restaurant should be equally fun. [The authors] have written a book that reads a little like a Lucky Peach issue crossed with a graphic novel: Yes, there are conventional recipes and lovely photography, but there's also pages of graphics woven throughout the book. . . Yes, this is all as fun--and appetizing--as it sounds."- LOS ANGELES TIMES "A joyful exploration of a lesser-known cuisine in America."- SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE About the Author ABRAHAM CONLON and ADRIENNE LO are the chefs and co-owners of the popular Chicago restaurant Fat Rice. They have awards and recognition from the James Beard Foundation, Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Eater, and many others. HUGH AMANO is a writer and the former sous chef of Fat Rice.

The idea for this tasty treat came from the Yat Heng Tong Bakery on the island of Taipa during our first trip to Macau. There we found a Taiwanese baker making crisp puffed rice balls coated with all kinds of things, but the one that stood out for us was the one with nori and rousong (pork floss)—a weirdly delicious, fluffy, MSG-laden porcine treat. The balls had the texture similar to Rice Krispies Treats, with a super-addictive, slightly oceanic, and savory taste. Back home, we added sesame and chilli flakes, and the dynamic texture of not-melted-all-the-way marshmallows for a strangely delicious taste combination of sweet and salty, with a bonus porky flavor putting it over the top. Making this dessert is a rite of passage at Fat Rice that all new cooks need to master, and it is always interesting to watch how someone not from the United States (and therefore, who has never made or even experienced Rice Krispies Treats before) interprets the recipe. 10 nori sheets, about 7 by 8 inches 1 cup rousing 9 ounces (about 11 cups) puffed rice cereal 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted 1 tablespoon Korean chili flakes 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus a bit to grease hands ½ teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil 1 (28-ounce) bag marshmallows Finely julienne the nori sheets into strips about 1 inch long—you’ll need a good, sharp knife and some serious elbow grease, or take the nori into your office after everyone else is gone and use the boss’s paper cutter. On the bottom of a dry 9 by 13-inch baking dish, first sprinkle half of the rousong, then half of the nori on top of the pork and set aside. You want the pork floss to be on the outside of both sides of the rice crisps or the seaweed will not adhere. Toss the cereal, sesame seeds, and Korean chilli flakes in a bowl and set aside. Melt the butter with the salt and sesame oil in the biggest and widest pot you’ve got. Add the marshmallows and stir to slightly melt, taking care not to melt them more than about halfway, just a few minutes. Remove from the heat and immediately add the cereal mixture, stirring well to combine. With buttered hands, press the cereal mixture firmly and evenly onto the floss and seaweed in the baking dish, pressing into an even layer. Top with the remaining seaweed, followed by the remaining pork floss. Top with parchment paper and weight down with another baking dish or something similar. Allow to cool for 1 hour, weighted, then remove from the pan and cut into serving-size portions. Serve immediately. Store any leftovers tightly wrapped at room temperature for up to 5 days.
