Re: Rice Paper



Robin,

I'm afraid your friend will have a hard time finding a recipe for rice
paper. "Rice paper" is a misnomer for Japanese or Oriental papers. There is
no rice fiber in it. From "Japanese Bookbinding," by Kojiro Ikegami, p. 16:
Washi, although often erronwously called "rice paper," is in reality made
from the inner bark of three fibrous plants: kozo or paper mulberry, gampi,
and mitsumata.
