The history of Rice Cake

Queen of the "poor" recipes, the Rice Cake owes its origin to the wise inventiveness of the dozens of Genoese women who transformed themselves into pickers to contribute to the maintenance of their families, starting from the valleys of the Ligurian hinterland to work on the harvest in the Novara area and in the Vercelli area, where they were also partly repaid with the rice harvested.
