Bamboo Sticky Rice Steamer
A traditional bamboo rice steamer that has for centuries been the North-eastern Thai secret to preserving all the nutrients in rice. Steamed sticky rice normally tastes sweet with a faint bamboo aroma - a treat to many city slickers. The bamboo sticky rice steamer was once a kitchen essential, however, due to urbanization, it is rare to find one in modern city houses. Visiting the countryside is always a treat for this reason. We love old objects that can be repurposed when not in use.
Use a bamboo sticky rice cooker to hold your fruits, as a flower basket and/or a lamp.
