“Lorna Sass’s new book makes whole grains look absolutely mouthwatering! Putting grains in the company of other good foods, where they should have been all along, gives these recipes such style and panache that they are hard to resist. No longer do grains have to be exiled to some dull place of earnest health. Good for Lorna for giving them the star billing they deserve.”
—Deborah Madison, author of Local Flavors:Cooking and Eating from America’s Farmers’ Markets
“This is an exciting new book for all of us who love good food and want to cook food that’s good for us. Lorna Sass has been our trusted guide to the world of healthful eating for years; now she gives us an indispensable primer, simple techniques, and great recipes for the grains we’ve always loved and the ones we’ve always wanted to learn more about. At last I know what to do with kamut–teff, sorghum, and amaranth, too–and so will you.”
—Dorie Greenspan, author of Baking: From My Home to Yours
“This book is a must for anyone trying to make sense of whole-grain recommendations and labels. It should immediately become an essential tool for cooks, timid or adventurous, who want to make delicious meals from basic wheat and rice or the more exotic teff and Job’s tears.”
—Marion Nestle, professor of nutrition, food studies, and public health, New York University, and author of What to Eat
“The title says it all: Lorna Sass has created an irresistible and wide-ranging collection of recipes that make both familiar and exotic grains easily accessible for everyday meals. I highly recommend this superb and useful cookbook.”
—Paula Wolfert, author of The Slow Mediterranean Kitchen: Recipes for the Passionate Cook
“A first-class, accessible resource for building truly delicious whole-grain dishes into your daily meals.”
—K. Dun Gifford, president, Oldways, and founding member, Whole Grains Council

As in all of her previous books, Ms. Sass has a unique, almost minimalist approach to seasoning. She pares down the lengthy ingredient lists of many ethnic recipes and uses just a few of a cuisine's defining herbs and spices to create deep, complex, and extremely satisfying flavors. Her taste buds are right on target. Some examples of her on-the-mark flavoring techniques are found in Thai Curried Chicken Soup with Brown Jasmine Rice, which has become a staple at our house, as have her Oat and Turkey Soup with Tex-Mex Flavors and her Ethiopian Chicken Stew with Teff Polenta.
Her Roasted Brown Rice Pilaf with Leeks incorporates an interesting method for making a very flavorful and versatile pilaf -- using only 4 ingredients. That's hard to beat!
Ms. Sass's delicious desserts are too numerous to mention. One our favorites is Brown Basmati Rice Pudding Custard. It is so fragrant and delicious that it satisfies diners who love custards and flans, and also those who love rice pudding at the same time. Her Biscotti were lighter than many I've had and beautifully crunchy without being teeth-shattering.
This is a book that will rise to the top of my "Favorites" in my cookbook list.
Sass offers the basic preparation method for all grains, demystifying categories like "kamut" and "farro," and over a hundred specific recipes from soup/salad through main courses through dessert. Not one that I've tried is a dud and she offers alternate grains for just about every recipe. She even offers intelligent wine choices--again, referring the aforementioned recipe,"try a medium bodied, fruity chardonnay without oak" was a good starting point.
There are typos (for example, in "Anise pignoli cookies" (278) the text reads "form balls 1/2 inch in diameter." That's a mighty tiny cookie, so I tried 1 1/2 inches and it worked great. But such lapses are few.Read more ›
