Rice is the staple of many Asian families around the world. Whether steamed, dried, shaped into triangles, or even pureed, this amazing grain never fails to impress. (Except, of course, when mouldy.)

However, Asian people also eat noodles. I myself am a great fan of these. They are generally long and thin, and are eaten with chopsticks. This is purely a generalisation, of course.

Then there are the beans.
