Rice is life, as they say, but how it's made around the world differs greatly. In this episode, we've brought in Brad who comes from a Libyan Jewish family, and Ted, who is first generation Greek, to explore this beloved grain. By swapping a Libyan red rice with lamb and a Greek spanakorizo, our guests try new techniques and new flavors as they learn about one another's cultures in the kitchen.
