Saipan is a mix of many cultures which has led to a unique variety of cuisines, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, European, and American. Our spices and herbs come from different countries which we used in most of our cooking. Most of our island favorites are spicy and also most of the hardy dishes, we use coconut milk for that uniqueness in taste. Fruits, vegetables, herbs, seafood, and even chocolate grown in our tropical island are fresh and flavorful. I hope you will fine our dishes to be superb to your taste buds.

Share Our Strength is a Non Profit organization that is dedicated to ending childhood hunger. They work with many big name chefs and food distributers to provide food for underprivileged children and It is endorsed by FoodNetwork who also sponsors Community Bakesales all over the country as fundraisers. (Sandra Lee from (Semi- Homemade) is one of their National spokespersons)
I am compiling a community style cookbook of Rice and Rice based recipes and am hoping to collect recipes from all over. Naturally, anyone who contributes a recipe (or more) will get full credit for any recipe they contribute with their name and hometown printed next to the recipe(s) they submit, and 100% of all sales of the cookbook will be donated to Share Our Strength.org.
The recipe's can be anything at all... salads soups, main dishes, side dishes, risottos, cassaroles, drinks, desserts.... vegan, vegetarian, ethnic, with or without any kind of protein.... They can use any kind of rice, or rice based ingredient (Rice noodles, Rice flour, Rice wines and vinegars, Rice Milk, and Even Rice Cereals...etc) As long as you have cooked it yourself, and it has rice somewhere in the recipe, the submission is welcome ( you can even include a little blurb about your recipe if you like )
I Really hope you will join my discussion group and help me to get this project off the ground. It means a lot to me. Thankyou
