More About the Author

Hi I'm Katherine and I am NOT a 'writer'. But I do like to write about food. My food in my world. The food that I share with my family and friends on both happy and sad occasions. The food that I prepare for fun, to nourish, to please, to humor, to entice, to nurse, to celebrate and to love.

If my children are what they eat, then my children are a combination of what I cook for them and, what I teach them to cook for themselves.

On a voluntary basis, I teach evening adult 'introduction to cooking' classes. Anything from how to boil an egg upwards (but not too far up). My target audience primarily consists of people who have never been shown the basics. The less advantaged in our society.

Through necessity I keep things simple. I will never be allowed inside the walls of a Cordon Bleu school nor will I be nominated for a Nobel prize in the literature category.

Over the years I have written thousands of pages of notes in preparation for my classes. My husband edits my ramblings and my children take a vengeful delight in finding spelling mistakes. Even spell chequers don't pick up on some of my clangers, so be warned.

My first collection happens to be Hummus. It is easy to teach, requires only a few ingredients, and I can introduce it at the most elementary level as something different and interesting, while being covertly nutritious. Hummus ticks all the boxes.

I did not invent hummus, nor did I invent the recipes. These are recipes that I have tried, tested, tweaked some and changed a few, over the years.

But hey, when just one of my students tells me that they have put some hummus and bread inside their child's lunch box instead of Oreos (only because they have run out of the afore mentioned cookies), I smile.

As I sit here eating hummus for breakfast (AGAIN!) I had to laugh at Katherine Canning's statement early in the text of MORE THAN HUMMUS CLASSIC HUMMUS RECIPES AND SO MUCH MORE that one batch would feed 8 - or 4 in her household! I get just about three meals out of a batch and there is just me to eat it most of the time.

Believe it or not, there was a time that I did not like hummus. My daughter would buy a tiny, kind of expensive little container of it every time a friend came to visit from the UK, but frankly I just didn't like the look of it. Then, when my granddaughter and I were homeschooling we studied the Silk Road and the Middle East. As part of our investigations we studied the food of the Middle East (if you don't understand something about the food, you won't understand the culture either) and so of course we researched and made a Middle Eastern dinner - hummus, tabbouleh, Felafel balls, Labane, olives, a little salad and of course homemade Pita Bread. We invited relatives and threw a party. Dinner was a huge success and hummus has made at least a weekly appearance in my house ever since. There are only a very few things that I buy canned other than anchovies: tomatoes and chickpeas. Oh yes, I do cook my own chickpeas from scratch in big batches and keep some in the freezer, but sometimes I am lazy or I want hummus NOW, not when the beans thaw!

MORE THAN HUMMUS CLASSIC HUMMUS RECIPES AND SO MUCH MORE contains everything you need to know about hummus. Do not laugh or turn up your nose when you get to the recipe for Peanut Butter Hummus.

This book made me want to get straight into the kitchen and make some hummus, which I haven't done for years.

The recipes are well formatted and all sound delicious.

I liked it that the author included information on why chickpeas are good for you and also why you need to soak them.

I will be looking out for other cookbooks by this author, particularly if they are vegetarian ones!

I'm a fan of hummus (and the other related food, falafel) but have relied on commercial products while wondering if I couldn't just make it myself. Along comes "More Than Hummus" and what a revelation it is on making hummus (with and without tahini, canned or dried garbanzos) and some excellent hummus options I'd never considered: Sun-Dried Tomato, Greek Olive, Avocado, Roasted Red Pepper.

This recipe ebook is well-written, thoughtfully laid out and Ms. Canning has a sense of humor that engages the reader (esp. moms). Don't skip this ebook thinking "It's just hummus" because true to the title, it really is "More Than Hummus." I'm hoping for more recipes and ideas from Ms. Canning.

I liked her short narrative, and then down to the recipes with her analysis. Also good recipe for making pita chips. It was delicious. Thanks!

This book is a quick and easy read that really gives you all the info I'd imagine you'd need to make your on hummus plus quick history, culture and serving suggestions as well as several variant recipes. I checked it out and I may try making hummus some time if I can ever find some of the stuff to taste it first!

I was Hummus challenged. Honestly I had NO idea up till a year or
so ago what Hummus even WAS! Now, here I am, making my own. This
is chocked full of great recipes, I don't think Ms.Canning missed
a beat as far as I can tell. I had no idea that there were SO many
things you could do with the humble Chick Pea! If you are a party
giving person, or you love dip kind of things, this could be a great
book for you to own.

This is a lovely compilation of recipes, with lots of variations so everyone should be able to find something to their taste. I especially got a kick out of the author noting that using a Kindle in the kitchen necessitates putting it into a protective cover. I grew up in a home where food and its preparation were a common topic, so I can relate to the author and her children presenting their creation for a 'tasting'. I look forward to using this book.

I've loved hummus and falafel for a while but was never able to make it right. This book did the trick. It's easy to read, explains things well and I am looking forward to experimenting. Thanks for the info.
