I haven't had time to do a full review, but I do enjoy having this book on my shelf. I don't eat a ton of grains, and have to eat gluten-free, so I wasn't sure how well I'd enjoy Krissoff's new book. I got it at a deep discount on Amazon, though, with hopes that I would get a little something out of it.

(Note: I have Canning for a New Generation, which is probably my favorite book on preserving.)

The new book is more than I hoped for. Krissoff does go into detail at the beginning of the book about

I "read" this book because I'm a member of the From Scratch Club here on GoodReads. (The parentheses around "read" are because I read the pertinent info, cover to cover, but certainly not every recipe!) I'm looking forward to cooking some dishes from it. It's beautifully done, detailed in how-to category for both what the grains are, what they're good for, how to prepare them and ever so much more. There are even a few grains I've never heard of before (very few) and many I've never tried cookin ...more

I don't eat as healthy as I should, so when I can find new ways to get whole grain, fruits and veggies into my diet, I jump at the chance. This is a very extensive cookbook. First, the author tells you about each grain featured, how to cook them and ways to serve them. Then there's the actual recipes. I'm one of the weird people who actually like oatmeal and the author offers up so many different topping combinations, I don't think I'd ever get bored. I've never really cooked with black rice, qu ...more

If you are looking for a basic cookbook this is not it.

If you like southwestern cuisine, I have no palate for it, Thai, Middle Eastern or anywhere but 'let's do what this title says' cookbook then go for it. I was looking for a cookbook to help me incorporate whole grains into my diet on an everyday level. The look inside nor the title gave any indication that I was going to be given an international culinary tour in order to do so.

I think the title is misleading and naturally you don't see any

Loved Krissoff's Canning book, glad to have discovered this as well. Tried the turkey and brown rice stuffed cabbage, buckwheat pancakes, sweet potato, millet, and edamame stew, baked oatmeal and enjoyed them all. Excited that she includes a variety of types of cuisines, Ethiopian, Indian, southern style. When you have read as many cookbooks as I have it is glorious to find something new and different. Quickly becoming one of my favorite cookbooks.

Awesome. One of the few cookbooks I have actually read all of the intro chapters for and throughly looked at. She has unique and interesting recipes for whole grains in here that break the "rules" and staid ways of thinking about healthy food. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to do more with whole grains or break out of brown rice ruts!

I haven't made any of the recipes yet but they are very appealing. I really like the book itself - the organization and that the recipes are clearly labeled as vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free.

Lots of good information for people who don't know where to begin with whole grains. For my taste, the book needed a LOT more pictures.
