From the Author
The New Whole Grains Cookbook is about where the rubber meets the road, when it comes to getting healthy whole grains into your lifestyle. I wanted all the essential information in one place, so the grain guides and cooking chart make it easy to quickly get answers. The recipes are collected from many years of cooking whole grains both at home and professionally. I hope that my love of the grains shines through. The hearty, earthy flavors of some grains are balanced with strong, exciting flavors, while other, sweeter grains play a different role in the recipes. In the baking recipes, only 100% whole grain flours are used, although beginners are advised that using part unbleached flour would be a gentle transition. I believe that once you become accustomed to the real flavors and textures of whole grain breads and baked goods, you will find fluffy white bread unsatisfying. Adding whole grains to your diet can be a delicious adventure, whether you are new to them, or a seasoned pro. Give these recipes a try, and make them your own.

Like many people, I have been trying to improve my diet, cut out processed foods and eat more whole foods. While searching for healthier alternatives I stumbled across this book, and I am so glad I did. Whether you are looking for a recipe to prepare a healthy filling meal or a delicious side dish, you will be sure to find something tempting in this collection of recipes. There are even some excellent desserts. My favorite recipes: the Whole Wheat Walnut Scones and the Zuppa Fiorentina. I love the fact that the author took the time to describe each of the grains used in the recipes, their individual history, traditional uses, and simple preparation techniques for each grain outside of the main recipes. The book is colorful, well written and well laid out. I wouldn’t usually recommend cookbooks for their beautiful photographs, but great recipes aside, this is a gorgeous book.
This book meets most of my needs for cooking and preparing whole grains which are most healthy for our hearts. I like to try new grains and this books gives me the chance to do that. I am very excited to try the many recipes. B. Koch
