More About the Author

I'm the author of the IACP-award-nominated WHOLE GRAINS for a New Generation, and two other books in the series: CANNING for a New Generation and the new VEGETARIAN for a New Generation (which Amazon for some reason won't let me list a link to on my bibliography page.

For more about who I am, what I like to cook and eat and do, see my (extremely informal) little blog, Pie and Beer: pieandbeer.wordpress.com. And no, I have no idea why I named it Pie and Beer all those years ago, except for the fact that I love those two things, especially together.

I have been learning a lot about grains lately, apart from the usual rice, cornmeal, and wheat. And came to the conclusion, even before reading 'Wheat Belly' that most of us would be healthier if we ate less gluten. So I was very curious to see what Whole Grains for a New Generation would have in it. Many of the gluten-free books have recipes that end up rather tasteless, or tasty but still horribly unhealthy. When you buy a book sight unseen you never know if the author has dreamed up totally bizarre taste combinations in the name of having something new. It is with a huge sigh of relief and gratitude that I can happily say that these recipes look totally amazing. They show that a lot of thought and creativity went into finding recipes that would be varied, as well as delicious. I love Huevos Rancheros with a passion, and will have to try this version in the morning, because much as it pains me to say it, she might just have a better version than most of the ones I have tried, and I live smack in the middle of Tex-Mex land! I have made all of the components enough that I know this is going to be really great.

First of all, the author takes us through buying and storing grains. She teaches us what all of the various grains are, and tells us a basic way of preparing each of them, including what size pot you will need. Krissoff gives us tips on substituting the grains, so if a recipe calls for a grain with gluten for example, and you want to omit gluten, you can substitute another grain with confidence. For example, instead of wheat berries you might substitute oat groats. There are beautiful pictures of most of the recipes as well. I attended a Natural Foods cooking school in order to get this amount of information.

This book is more than a recipe book, it's a whole grain primer that includes a roster of gluten-free grains (and how to substitute "regular" grains for similarly shaped gluten-free grains). My favorite recipe is the oat-crusted fish; the salads are refreshing, too. Liana includes Indian, Middle Eastern and other international cuisines, not to mention some of her family's recipes, which introduced me to new flavor palettes. I'd give this as a gift to anyone, but especially to my gluten-free friends.

Brown rice, whole-wheat flour, and oatmeal. Maybe corn? Is quinoa a grain? If those are the only whole grains you can think of, get ready to have your mind blown! Liana Krissoff introduces readers to a variety of deliciousness in "Whole Grains for a New Generation." She starts off with introductions, including such lesser known beauties as amaranth, millet, and sorghum, offering descriptions and basic cooking instructions. She follows up with more recipes than you can shake a stick at. Try Buttermilk Oatcakes for breakfast, a Sprouted Wheat Berry Salad with Avocado and Pickled Red Onion for lunch, or Amaranth-Crusted Baked Catfish for dinner. For dessert, try Sweet Lemon Quinoa Custards with Papaya Syrup. Krissoff includes recipes for homemade condiments, breads, side dishes, appetizers, and more. Both meat-eaters and vegetarians will find ideas here, and easy substitution instructions make every recipe versatile; if you can't find spelt berries, you can just as easily use buckwheat groats or wild rice. Some recipes are complex, others are simple, and most ingredients should be obtainable at either your regular grocery store or your local health food store. Get ready to give some new grains a try!

I ordered this book because I really enjoyed the canning book by the same author. I in general like to eat a variety of grains but want them to be tasty not just healthy. This book is great because all of the recipes (like the muesli and the huevos rancheros) that I have tried so far have been super delicious. I enjoy now knowing that I can have more variety of grains in my life and they aren't more difficult to cook than rice.

I have retired and am working on eating better. I started with cooking and eating whole grains. I have lost weight just by eating more whole grains. I do not eat as much because I am filled up with less food. Also I feel so much better. I may take a little more time but it is worth it .....

I have hundreds of cookbooks but this one of a handful that I turn to regularly. Not only are the recipes healthy, quick and easy to put together, they aren't all the same trendy ones you see in every cookbook. There is actually some thought and work put into them. Currently, I've been making the been the curried cauliflower and barely sweet granola on a weekly basis.

I've used many but certainly enjoy seeing grains new to me, and new ways to fix all of them. Good recipes pair grains interestingly with other foods and new seasonings (new to me.) One star off which others may not agree with but for me the author's organization of what to do when wasn't quite the best fit for my thought processes. I am an old dog trying to teach myself new tricks though, so maybe this is my own perception. It's a great book and I'm very glad I got it, especially in partnership with a wonderful book on greens and a third book on beans that I bought all at the same time. I'm having a great time exploring them together.
