Bert Greene serves up a veritable treat of a book full of recipes. He delves into the history and origins of the old and newer types of grains (oats to millet, triticale to amaranth) and how to buy, store, and cook with them. And what DO you do with wheat germ other than put it on cereal? Bert tells you!
In today's health conscious climate we long to incorporate these fantastically nutritious super-foods into our meals but don't always know how. Helpfully too, most of these grains can now be found in supermarkets, health food or specialty stores.
This is a 'must-have' book, both for meat-eaters wanting a healthy diet, and vegetarians alike. Next time you have a vegetarian to dinner and quake at the thought because you haven't a clue what to serve them, this will give you all the help you need from starters to main courses to desserts.
