Chefs Abraham Conlon and Adrienne Lo are the co-owners of the fantastic Chicago restaurant Fat Rice and now they’re sharing the secrets in their new book The Adventures of Fat Rice! This cookbook explores the stories and recipes behind the cuisine of Macau; a unique and cosmopolitan region just outside of Hong Kong that has for too long flown under the radar of the culinary world. Don’t miss out!


With 100 recipes, this is the first book to explore the vibrant food culture of Macau an east-meets-west melting pot of Chinese, Portuguese, Malaysian, and Indian foodways as seen through the lens of the cult favorite Chicago restaurant, Fat Rice. 
An hour's ferry ride from Hong Kong, on the banks of the Pearl Riverin China, lies Macau a modern, cosmopolitan city with an unexpectedhistory. For centuries, Macau was one of the world's greatest tradingports: a Portuguese outpost and crossroads along the spice route, wheretravelers from Europe, Southeast Asia, South Asia, and mainland Chinatraded resources, culture, and food. The Adventures of Fat Rice is thestory of how two Chicago chefs discovered and fell in love with thisfascinating and, at least until now, unheralded cuisine. With dishes like Minchi (a classic Macanese meat hash), Po Kok Gai(a Portuguese-influenced chicken curry with chourico and olives), and Arroz Gordo (if paella and fried rice had a baby), now you, too, can bringthe eclectic and wonderfully unique yet enticingly familiar flavors of Macau into your own kitchen.
