Just in time for you to get all virtuous and stuff! after weeks of refined-carb bingeing.

I can’t think of many cookbooks more necessary right now than whole-grains cookbooks.  When someone hands you a package of spelt berries, even if you know what to do with them it’s just hard to get inspired (hey! I would really like to see that on Iron Chef! I mean, if I had TV I would).  You can’t even deep-fry them or coat them in chocolate.   It is, however, possible to apply bacon.

The authors use this maneuver and lots more (like the liberal use of a variety of vinegars) to make whole grains palatable and yes, in some cases, memorable.
