Wild Rice Cooking

History, Natural History, Harvesting, and Lore


From the publisher

Wild rice, native only to the western Great Lakes region of the United States, is rich in both nutrition and lore. Using canoes and traditional methods, American Indians and other residents of the area harvest it from lakes and rivers where it grows naturally. Wild rice is also raised and harvested commercially.

Wild Rice Cooking is the complete book of wild rice. Tucked within its pages are the history and lore of wild rice, as well as a primer on how to share the joys of reaping wild harvest. Also included are instructions on proper cooking techniques, a guide to buying wild rice, and 80 recipes inspired by both the rice harvesters of today and of long ago.
