"A whole-grain cookbook featuring well-balanced and wholesome recipes inspired by the Mediterranean cuisines of Greece, southern France, Italy, and Turkey. Author Maria Speck loves whole grains such as farro, barley, quinoa, and spelt, not only because they are healthy and nutritious, but also because they are versatile ingredients for delicious and satisfying breakfasts, breads, salads, soups, main dishes, and desserts. In Ancient Grains for Modern Meals, Speck draws on her Greek mother's cooking and the foods of her European upbringing to offer 100 recipes that fuse tradition with flavors for the modern palate. Rustic yet elegant dishes such as Creamy Breakfast Farro with Honey-Roasted Grapes, Quinoa Cakes with Smoked Trout, Red Wine Braised Lamb with Wheat Berries, and Ricotta Millet Pudding with Blood Orange Syrup are wonderful additions to every home cook's whole-grain repertoire"-- Provided by publisher.

Rather than being trendy, the recipes in this book focus on using the grains to make food that tastes delicious. It is refreshing to have a cookbook author advocate that the sensible use of butter does not automatically lead to a thickening waistline.
I too bought a copy of this book after borrowing it from the library.

I liked this so much I bought a copy. I've made several dishes and they were both great. Lot's of good info on buying and using whole grains. The writing is good--stories and history of her love of whole grains. She has a German/Greek background and a husband who is from the Middle East, so the food combines all of those factors which makes it homey and exotic at the same time. Yum.
