This rice is simple but good. I felt it could have used a tiny bit more flavor, but with the addition of lots of pepper, this was thoroughly enjoyed by yours truly :) I had to use steamed cashews instead of pine nuts as I couldnt get pine nuts at the local grocer... but that wouldnt have made a huge difference. Next time I may add a few strands of saffron for a stronger color :) Thank you for this recipe!

An absolute winner!! This is a rice dish I will make again and again. It reminded me of the rice served at Anthonys resaurant here in WA

I really liked this rice and will be making it again. The raisins add a wonderful flavour to it!
