Excellent! Great advice on cooking ahead and storing, lots of gluten-free options, often the cheese is added at the end (so easily omitted if necessary). Most important, it's delicious, nutritious and thrifty. My copy is getting stained. ( )

I love this book for its delicious breakfast recipes. I needed some new ideas. I especially liked the two step method to cut down on cooking time for busy mornings. But that is just the start!

Maria Speck has given us wonderfully complete introductions to each of the grains. Letting us know about the texture, flavor and nutritional pluses of every one. She includes a cooking table for a quick look at grain to liquid ratios and ideal cooking methods. Her recipes are delicious and the fine points after each recipe offer gluten free and vegetarian options as well as variations of the dish. At the end there are listings of sources for these more unusual grains. Simply Ancient Grains is beautifully illustrated which inspires me to get into the kitchen and try something new.

Thank you for a very special addition to my cooking library. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. ( )

The award-winning author of 'Ancient grains for modern meals', Maria Speck makes cooking with ancient grains faster, more intuitive, and easier than ever before in this collection of recipes, most of which are gluten-free. From black rice to red quinoa to golden Kamut berries, ancient grains are showing up on restaurant menus and store shelves in abundance.

Her family-friendly dishes are Mediterranean-inspired and delicious, such as Spicy honey and habanero shrimp with cherry couscous; Farro salad with roasted eggplant, Caramelized onion, and pine nuts; and Red rice shakshuka with feta cheese. Maria's tips and simplified approach take whole grain cooking to the next level by amplifying the flavour and enduring beauty of these nutritious grains.… (more)
