This week on Food Talk with Mike Colameco, Abe Conlon is on the phone from Chicago to talk about the new book he co-authored with his business partner Adrienne Lo, The Adventures of Fat Rice: Recipes from the Chicago Restaurant Inspired by Macau. 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.


"As far as Chinese cuisine is concerned, it is by far the most technical. They cook every single ingredient known to man, so there's so much knowledge there." – Abe Conlon
