2-0 out of 5 stars disappointing
it's really small and of poor quality. The recipes are very basic. How many times do they have to write how to make BREAD? (with one ingredient different in the recipes?)

Well you could use this if you have never cooked , it has some basic recipes, but for colitis...gna.

1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
This book was not worth the money. The pages looked and felt like they were xeroxed, very thin and flimsy. Most of the recipes had ingredients that most with Crohn's or Colitis could never eat! There were a lot of meals that included dairy and too many spices. It seemed to me that these people had limited knowledge of IBD's before they put together this cookbook. If you want IBD friendly recipes, use normal recipes and substitute the necessary ingredients, don't buy this book!

2-0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing
I was a bit disappointed with the presentation of this book. I liked the spiral-bound design, but the pages are printed on paper similar to xerox stock. They could've laminated the pages or at least used card stock. I am afraid that the book will be ruined after a few uses. The recipes are ok, however, I would've liked to see more dairy-free recipes. Many of the recipes use soy milk or soy cheese as a substitute which you could do with any recipe. I didn't need a special book to tell me that.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not very impressive
This is a tiny little book, I was not at all impressed with the list of recipes. I think you can find IBD-compatible recipes in most magazines and you can substitute dairy products for non-dairy products. This book is really not worth the price I paid for it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book
I gave this book to my brother for Christmas -- he has colitis and has been on a very limited diet. Since he loves to eat good food, this cookbook has given him a lot of ways to make his restricted diet more palatable. We highly recommend it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars We use this cookbook at least 3 times a week (usually more)
I bought a rice cooker, learned the basics of preparing rice and then wanted to expand my skills. So I bought a few cookbooks but this is the ONLY one that has recipes my whole family loves, so much so that we use it at least 3-5 times a week and never feel like we're eating the same thing.
The recipes aren't just for rice but for all sorts of grains and vegetables and fruits as well. In fact, I'm ready to throw out my crockpot because the meals prepared in the rice cooker are much better, don't have that overcooked, stewed taste you can get with a crockpot and have all the convenience and ease that I need with my busy schedule. The directions are clear and the recipes range from the simple (plain cooked grains) to the more complex (rice with coconut and currants... or grits with cheese and spices )
The ultimate test of a good cookbook, of course, is getting compliments and raves about the food. Every time I've made a recipe from this book, the food has been devoured quickly. We rarely have leftovers and my son's friends even make a point of looking in the kitchen to see if the rice cooker is turned on ( yes, the recipes in this cookbook are THAT good).

5-0 out of 5 stars Everything you ever wanted to know about rice
I love rice. I could eat it every meal. I bought a rice cooker two years ago and have used it regularly ever since, not just for plain rice but also for red beans & rice, rice with veggies, rice cooked in different liquids and with different flavorings and additions. I thought I had done it all. I picked up this cookbook thinking it would have maybe a few ideas that would be new, maybe a dozen ideas out of the 250 recipes. Boy was I wrong! There is a LOT of good information on rice in here - and this is coming from someone who used to work at a health food store & knows her rice. And every single recipe I have tried has come out perfectly. Finally I can make Indian-restaurant style basmati rice the way my husband likes it (Qui's Basmati Pilaf p. 97)! My only complaint is that I'm probably going to have to spring for a newer fuzzy logic rice cooker as some (but not nearly all or even most) of the recipes will only work with that style of cooker. Aw, shucks, I have to go shopping :)

5-0 out of 5 stars If you use a rice cooker, this book is very helpful.
I have been using a rice cooker at least 3x/week for over 16 years, but only to make white rice. I bought this cookbook so that I could explore other ways to use this "must-have" kitchen appliance. I think the book is well worth the price, even if you don't own a "fuzzy logic" rice cooker. There are not too many recipes that call for "fuzzy logic" cookers only. Most recipes can be done with either the "on/off" type (like I have) or the "fuzzy logic" type.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must if you own a Rice Cooker
After buying a Zojirushi NS-ZAC 10 rice cooker, I knew I had to buy this book. I'd checked it out from the library but there are simply too many good recipes that I had to buy it. This is the bible for anyone owning a rice cooker. Only problem is it has recipes for both fuzzy logic and on/off type machines and now I find myself wishing I had both so I could try more recipes!

5-0 out of 5 stars WoW
I bought this book before I purchased my rice cooker. I really wanted to prepare beans and whole grains, not just rice. I learned that I could use this appliance in many ways. It made me so excited to purchase a rice cooker. All questions are answered. You CAN use this book to prepare many healthful foods in the basic on off rice cooker. There are only a few recipes that require the fuzzy logic rice cooker. I don't think I have ever had a cookbook that was so well written and entertaining to read, or easy to follow. ... Read more

3. Seductions of Rice : A Cookbook

Chinese stir-frys, Spanish paellas, Japanese sushi, Indian thorans, Thai salads, Turkish pilafs, Italian risottos, Senegalese yassas, American gumbos: if rice isn't the heart and soul of all these diverse dishes, rice can be found piled right there at the side of the plate, or in a bowl. To say that Alford and Duguid, authors of the award-winning Flatbreads and Flavors, deliver the world of rice is much too simple an understatement. Your days of buying one rice to serve all purposes will end with even a cursory reading of this lovely book.

The authors are photographers as well as writers, but their greatest skill may be to travel the world at the level of the culture they visit. They seem able to drop away from Western culture and hunker right down with rice vendor or cook, no matter where.

Seductions of Rice opens with all the basics of rice, everything a reader would want to know and then some. Then on to the cultures of rice: Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indian, Central Asian, Mediterranean, Senegalese, and North American. Recipes either made from rice or to accompany rice range from Chinese Congee to Thai Green Papaya Salad to Japanese Quick Morning Miso Soup to South Indian Lentil Stew to Cuban Black Beans to Mexican Green Rice.

And in between? The authors fill in all the space between these diverse grains of rice with traveler's tales from the road. It is a luxurious book, a delicious book, a ripe combination of travel and taste. You leave off thinking that the world must be the shape of a rice ball. --Schuyler Ingle ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Part photo essay, part travelogue, part cookbook, all rice
My daughter tells me not everyone has at least four kinds of rice as pantry staples; I tell her they should - and this book gives them reason to.

This has the most comprehensive inventory of rice types that I have seen. For example, I have only recently found a source for red rice; this book distinguishes between Thai red rice, mahogany rice, Bhutanese red rice, Himalayan red rice, South Indian red rice, South Asian red rice, Vietnamese red cargo rice and Wehani. Reading the differences, even without knowledge of what red rice I bought, allows me to adjust the recipes conservatively so that I don't over-cook, over-power or otherwise mutilate my find.

The recipes are well chosen; many of the recipes are not rice recipes but dishes to accompany rice. This gives the book a greater range than its title might imply. The stories of learning the worldwide recipes on site add to the enjoyment of the recipes; they provide a travelogue of the search for new rices and rice uses. They are accompanied with excellent photographs of growing, harvesting, and cooking rice.

Recipes come from Italy, Mexico, Japan, Turkey, Thailand, India, China, USA, Senegal, Persia, Jamaica, Spain, Uighur (Russian-Chinese border). There is an index by the geographic region which allows the book to serve as an ethnic cookbook.

This is a cookbook to read and to use. I definately recommend it.

3-0 out of 5 stars No pictures of the recipes!
This book is beautiful and informative, and full of color photographs. However, only a few of these photographs are of the finished dishes themselves. You'll see people in markets, rice paddies, rice for sale, landscapes, fish, vegetables, etc. The few photographs of dishes are on the cover and in a small section in the middle of the book. The caption under the photograph refers to the page with the recipe, but not vice versa, so the recipe does not lead you to the picture. Of approximately one hundred recipes, only about 25 have photographs of the finished dish. Also, about a third of the recipes don't feature rice itself, but are of dishes to be eaten with rice. I was looking for a book with lots of recipes using rice, and with color photos of the finished product. This book is not exactly that. There is a great recipe for tofu with tomatoes and coriander (where's the rice?), the rice-stuffed grape leaves are good as well. There is a lot of information about rice as a crop, different kinds of rice, etc.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!
This book is a combination of excellent travel narratives, photo-essays, and recipes. Most delicious are the fried rice recipes and the dipping sauces. Definitely a pleasure to peruse and also to utilize for simple dinner recipes with complex and authentic flavors. Some of the ingredients are difficult to find in typical grocery stores, but may be found in tiny international markets. A must for lovers of Chinese, Japanese, and Indian cuisines.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing book--great read, great recipes
Obviously, don't buy this book if you don't like rice or starch. But that being a given, this is a wonderful book to read and to cook from. I bought a paperback in a store for about twice this price, so this is a great value and would make a fabulous gift. One of the previous reviewers who noted that nowheres near all of the recipes in this book actually _include_ rice was correct--they don't. But the authors talk in their introduction about how their book is meant to be a cookbook for those who eat rice at every meal--how you go home, start cooking rice, and then decide what to eat with it. That said, there are many recipes here that make fast, tasty meals when combined with rice. Must-try recipes include Thai sweet rice cakes and Chinese-style summer stir-fry (to eat with rice).

3-0 out of 5 stars No instructions for using a rice cooker :-(
Beautifully put together book, but my main complaint is that there are no instructions for using a rice cooker. The authors talk about how they used one for a year and were quite happy with this technique, but preferred using the saucepan method. That's all well and good, but some of us don't have the time or patience for that. ... Read more

Been itching to try out quinoa and amaranth, food of the Incangods, or to reach back to pharaonic Egypt and beyond for the taste ofspelt, progenitor of modern wheat? If so, Marlene Bumgarner's NewBook of Whole Grains is the place to start. This is life at thebottom of the food pyramid, that glorious culinary domicile where allresidents are allowed to eat all they want of whatever's on the shelf--whenever they want to eat it. Bumgarner encourages this behavior with200 recipes, organized by grain, that utilize whole grains as sidedishes, main courses, breads, desserts, and breakfast foods. Firstpublished in 1976, Bumgarner's whole-grains cookbook has withstood thetest of time . The author has returned to her original material andupdated recipes to reflect new ideas about salt and fat content, andshe addresses the differences in the average household's available timethat have cropped up in the last 20 years. You might think that wholegrains take too long to bother with, but they can help you move yourdiet and cooking in a healthy, friendly direction. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great cookbook
I have been trying to cook using more whole foods and this cookbook is one of the best. It has great recipes and is a good read too. I bought another for my mother and she enjoys it as well. The oat flour pancakes and whole wheat soft pretzels are ones I make all the time. The whole wheat bagels were great. I have tried 2-3 dozen recipes so far and they are all great. I would also recommend "366 delicious ways to cook rice, beans and grains" by Andrea Chesman. I give it 5 stars as well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great, but something's missing...
I just got this book, looked it over and am really excited about it. Very unique recipes that I haven't seen anywhere. However, I was discouraged in one recipe, "Brown Rice Risotto," because it tells you to "dissolve yeast," but there's no yeast listed in the list of ingredients. I'm assuming I found the only recipe with a problem. All in all, I can't wait to make the recipes!

4-0 out of 5 stars A good case for living in better health
This book has an expansive overview of different grains, their history, some familiar and some less known. Many may not be part of some peoples regular diet, yet this book inspires one to try them and provides good recipes in which to experiment and have fun. Bumgarner makes a great case to expand a readers menus in order to live a more healthy life with natural foods. She shows that solid research and lots of love went into the production of this book. Baking recipes may be difficult for wheat sensitive people.

4-0 out of 5 stars GREAT grain book!
I have used this book over and over again.It has wonderful bread recipes,such as a malt one with raisins.The side dishes and salads are VERY easy to prepare,and none of the recipes require an umpteen number of ingredients!!Most of them take very little time to prepare,also.If you are into adding mroe grains to your diet,or expanding your repetoire of recipes,this is a great book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow instructions
I tried a few recipes on Whole Wheat Breads and the dough comes out too wet to knead.

Entree recipes are delicious and the variety is great.

Maybe M.Anne Bumgarner needs to be more specific on how much time is required to mix flour with liquids to bring out the gluten in whole wheat flour.

Thank you. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Info on Beans
Regarding the "fart" comment earlier - beans have fiber, which moves waste out, avoiding cancers and other intestinal problems. There is actually less gas if people eat enough fiber regularly. Most people don't, so that is what causes gas in the system.

Combining beans and peas (also called legumes) with any kind of seed grain(whole wheat, rice, sesame, corn) results in complete protein. Adding a little dairy like yogurt to the mix, and you have all the possible amino acids. Peanuts, oddly, also are part of the legume family.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super book - demystifies beans and rice!
I'm a returning student and eating out was one of the things I had to give up to survive on my smaller budget. This cookbook helps because I can make meals that I like better than most restaurant food with little fuss and cheap ingredients. The recipes are easy to follow and the introductory content helped me understand the basics of bean preparation so I don't have to rely on over-priced, high-sodium content canned beans!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great book
There are many good bean books on the market, but this one is perhaps a cut above the rest. The recipes are easy, delicious, and plentiful. A great addition to your bean book collection, or the only one you'll want if you are creating one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beans beans, they're good for your heart - so is this book!
Just make sure to open all the windows, cause you'll fart up a storm, and a deliciously supplied one at that!

This cookbook is an excellent resource for both vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Chesman writes in a very easy to read style and her recipes are delicious.

Book Description

From the best-selling author of Tapas: The Little Dishes of Spain and The Foods and Wines of Spain.

Unless they have traveled to spain, most Americans have never tasted a really good paella. What passes for paella at restaurants and even in cookbooks here is a pale imitation of the real thing, the vibrant Spanish rice dish that marries the robust flavors of olive oil, garlic, tomatoes, and pepper with short-grain rice, broth, and meat, fish, or vegetables. Penelope Casas is here to restore the glorious paella to its rightful place as a grain-based meal that will gratify the senses as well as be the centerpiece for easy, elegant entertaining.

Casas presents sixty different fascinating paellas, some traditional, some her own creation, showing how easily some of the preparation can be done ahead of time with supermarket ingredients. She includes a superior collection of tapas, the Spanish meal starters, two dozen simple desserts, and a handful of broths and sauces. Her passion for paella, her clear directions, and her creative pairings of fresh ingredients make this unusual cookbook a winner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Exciting!
I just came back from a wonderful trip to Barcelona, Spain and one of the most memorable dinners that we had was lobster paella. I couldn't wait to see if there were recipes for paella out there to experiment with. And this book by Penelope Casas is wonderful.

She gives recipes for a variety of different paella dishes from fish to chicken to meat to seafoods... you can take you pick. This was extremely important to me as my boyfriend is allergic to clams, but just loves rice which is the base of this amazing dish.

I have been able to scout out the ingredients such as the arborio rice and saffron at the grocery store since I wasn't sure I could find them. I still do not have a paella pan yet, but I can't wait to get one and try out these recipes. They sound delicious and Penelope Casas' descriptions are very easy to understand and visualize while you read. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Thank you for this great book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Penelope Casas Does It Again!
Penelope Casas has come up with yet another indispensable addition to anyone's library of Spanish cuisine. This book greatly expands our knowledge of Spain's great rice dishes and I highly recommend it. Although many paella and arroz recipes seem daunting, if you follow Ms. Casas instructions you will find that, except for prepping the dishes, good paellas are surprisingly easy to make, colorful on the table, and usually popular with everyone. These enjoyable dish can even be reheated by micro-wave the next day, if indeed, there is any left. (My advice is to make double the amount you think you will need.) Making paella is a great family endeavor and the dish is a great dinner party, picnic, or outdoor barbecue dish. The variety of rice dishes in Casas's book gives an idea of the great diversity of Spanish cuisine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ole`
What a sumptous, mouth-watering book!! I have been on an endless search for the perfect Paella for years. Several places have come close but none were as good as some made from the recipes in this book. Half the fun of eating Paella is in the making of it....what ingredients to use, how to cook them, mixing all the various components, selecting the proper wine (a white sangria is perfection itself).

The accompanying information is almost as good as the recipes themselves. And the best feature of these recipes is that none is out of the range of the better-than-average cook. No tedious or long steps, no stuffing of chicken legs or boning of tiny quail - just grilling, cutting, and cooking. I prefer a Grilled Paella - or at least grilling the individual components. One must remember at all times though - Paella is, above all else, a RICE dish. That is the essence of a good Paella, the semi-crunchy red, saffron enfused grain.

To those who had trouble with the temperature or cooking time I would suggest adjusting their time/temp for their own applicances. I have both a convection oven and microwave and know that most times are reduced by a third.

2-0 out of 5 stars Penelope Casas is good, but she is not at her best here
I have two of her books, this one and the Tapas book. The Tapas book is really great. The paella book is really a bit too much. I mean, how many kinds of paella can you really eat? This is probably my own fault for buying the book- I should have figured that an entire book of paella would be overkill. But a friend of mine, whose culinary tastes I respect, suggested it, so I bought it site unseen. If you are an afficionado of paella, by all means you should get this book, but for me it's not worth it. I really like paella, but I dont' make it once a week or anything like that. I make pizza once a week, and frankly even then the "Chez Pannise" pizza cookbook I have is far too much for me. Who needs a recipe for venison, duck sausage and baby octopus paella, for crying out loud? Some do, most don't. Now, Casas' "Tapas" book is a MUST have- she's a tapas godess. Well worth the investment. But unless you are a total rice freak and can't get enough of risotto, suchi, jambalaya and paella, each of which in umpteen gazillion different forms, you'll be spendng a couple dozen greenbacks on a book that will realistically yield about four or five recipies you are likely to make with any degree of frequency.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun, good cookbook
I bought this after eating at the home of friends who used this cookbook to prepare dinner. Although paella can be labor and time intensive, I found the directions clear and easy to follow. Suggestions for desserts & drinks etc. beneficial and easy. NOTHING in the book has turned out badly. The varieties of paella described have made it possible for me to serve the dish to vegetarians, Kosher-observant Jews (!), and your basic American carnivore. A treat. ... Read more

Every recipe I have tried in this book has been terrific....even the most bean-shy individual will have to admit that beans can be tasty. I didn't have a great deal of experience cooking with beans and lentils, so I appreciated the cooking method section. I can honestly say that this is the best cookbook I have ever bought.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beans in California
I have a bookcase full of cookery books, BUT, "Easy Beans" and "More Easy Beans" are two of my top favorites. All the recipes I have tried are delicious, and best of all for a busy professional, quick and easy to make when I come home tired at the end of the day. As an MD interested in nutrition, I can heartily recommend the recipes in these books for the good of your heart. Well done, authors!

5-0 out of 5 stars EASY BEANS - The best bean/pea/lentil cookbook ever!
This wonderful book took all the mystery out of cooking with all types of beans, peas and lentils. The recipes are versatile, nutritious and extremely simple to prepare. The authors' blurb at the beginning of each recipe is informative and quite often humourous. The Leek & Lentil Soup (page 28) has now become a weekly favourite of both my family and co-workers!! And as a final added bonus, the binding lies flat on the counter for easy reading while cooking. What more could a busy chef ask for?!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thank-you,Easy Beans and More...
As a fairly recently converted Vegetarian, I was thrilled to discover "Easy Beans", then, joy!!! "More Easy Beans". These 2 have become my most-used EVER cook books. I have wowed family and friends with various soups, dips, casseroles, chilis, etc. etc. etc. Thank-you so much. More More Beans please. ... Read more

Any risotto lover would love this book and want to try all the recipes.I have tried a lot of them and they were all delicious and the recipes easy to follow.

4-0 out of 5 stars If You Love Risotto, Then This Book Is For You!
This cookbook is a complete reference for cooking risotto, the classic dish of northern Italy. With 120 authentic recipes, covering everything from risottos with cheese, vegetables, meat, seafood, and fruit, there is definitely a recipe for everyone. You might try a tasty Risotto con Porcini e Rucola (mushrooms and arugula) which is one of my favorite recipes from the book, or perhaps a nice Risotto Rosso alle Vongole (clams in red sauce). The recipes are easy to follow, contain ingredients that are readily obtained, and most offer variations as well. As the Italian Food Host @ BellaOnline, I am always looking for books that share recipes containing ingredients that everyone can find.

Also included in this book,are also chapters that contain important information on risotto ingredients and traditional preparation methods. Although I found it disappointing that this book contained no photographs or illustrations, which would only have enhanced my opinion of this book, I feel that if you love risotto, you'll enjoy this book. When it comes to risotto, this book has everything you could ever need!

5-0 out of 5 stars Ah, Risotto!
I first learned about risotto at a cooking class from a wonderful Italian chef. I never knew rice could be comfort food like this! Then my husband bought this cookbook for me and it absolutely blew me away. The basics of risotto are explained so clearly, exactly as we had learned in class, and the recipes are concise and easy to follow. The really amazing part is all the different combinations of foods you can combine with simple arborio rice and create a culinary masterpiece. One of my favorites is the Fresh Herb Risotto... so easy, just a short walk to the herb garden and you have the most amazing side dish ever! I have a LOT of cookbooks and this is easily one of my favorites... one I won't part with, one I give to others as a gift!

5-0 out of 5 stars Delicioso!
Every recipe I have tried so far has been wonderful. I especially enjoyed the detailed technique descriptions, and the fact that there are many vegetarian/seafood recipes.

4-0 out of 5 stars Risotto Lovers Unite!!
Risotto has been a dish that I have loved ever since I was a child, and this book not only includes a truckload of recipes, ranging from the traditional to the truly creative, but it's also prefaced with an interesting account to the origins of this fabulous Italian creation. Not being a cook, I enjoy this book for its straightforwardness and lack of pretension. Risotto is also a versatile dish that can be easily prepared with various vegetables, cheeses, fish, beef, etc. As such, the chapters are broken down according to the kind of risotto one would like to prepare. This also makes the book easy to understand and thoroughly enjoyable. It takes a lot for me to invest in any kind of cook book, so if I say this one is worth it, I mean it. ... Read more

Grains can transform taste and texture in unsurpassed ways like these:

  • Hearty buckwheat becomes a sweet, delicate, Parisian-inspired crepe

  • Thai black sticky rice flavored with coconut makes unforgettable exotic banana dumplings.

The natural and native history of each grain is also explored along with its health benefits. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Award-winning cookbook celebrates the jewels of the fields
Where was I when The Splendid Grain won the James Beard Foundation Award for Excellence and the International Association of Culinary Professionals Julia Child Cookbook Award? Usually I am waiting with bated breath to see who wins these awards and I have read and digested all the cookbooks in the running. It is like the Academy Awards for the cookbook world. "The Splendid Grain" by Rebecca Wood did win the award and deserved it. It is filled with text that engages and recipes that have kept us cooking since I first discovered it about three years after it came out.

My only excuse for not having found it earlier is that I had one year old twins who never slept and all I did was nurse, look about with bleary eyes and try to make noodles for the fifth night running. I guess The Splendid Grain would have been of no use to me then. I would have cried when I read it. All these recipes for bagels made with barley flour and Strawberry Blue Corn Waffles that I could not cook because I was on the floor baby-proofing the outlets or cleaning up oatmeal from the baseboards.

I read an article on bread by Laurie Colwin back before I had children. Wisdom wasted on the uninitiated. In it Laurie Colwin said that she found a bread cookbook when her daughter was young and she read it as fiction because that is what bread baking is to people with babies. This is not just to let me off the hook for missing a great cookbook when it came out but to say buy it even if you have no kitchen because it makes such a good read.

The recipes in "The Splendid Grain" are easier than they appear. I made bagels with my three kids and a few assorted extras over on play dates. We made the dough in a few minutes and then let it rise while we kept the dog from scaring one child and we forgot about the dough all together by the time the dog was on a leash and the child pacified. When we came back to the dough it had a strange gray color from the barley flour but this was a plus for the under seven set.

Making the bagel shapes was easy enough for three year olds. Boiling was fun and baking easy and we were done. The dozen were gone immediately. I had one that I split with my husband. They were an eerie Halloween gray but had a complex taste from the barley. I forgot about them in my rush to try the next recipe from The Splendid Grain. I was informed at school a few days later that my son's friend, the one who is scared of the dog, was never coming over again if I did not stop upstaging her mom by doing things like making these great homemade bagels. I guess they did not forget about the bagels for a while.

We made waffles, and breakfast cakes; winter squash potage was the hit of a Hanukkah party for which we promised to make Matzoh Ball soup but I just couldn't leave old Rebecca Wood to do it. No one missed the Matzoh Balls, and I make excellent Matzoh Balls. We had cornmeal mush instead of oatmeal. Real Vietnamese Spring Rolls are the plan for dinner tonight. She makes it look so easy. On the still-to-try list is a Rye and Cauliflower Casserole and Quinoa Soup Saigon Style.

The Apricot Millet Breakfast Cake is what brought the book to my attention. I would like to thank my friend Jeanie for the cake I finished before I could share it with the kids as intended. Jeanie was a chef and cake baker extraordinaire before kids. I trust her food judgment and envy her huge Hobart mixer and professional range. She gave us a piece of this cake as I was picking my son up from a play date. Jeanie showed me "The Splendid Grain." "You've seen this, right?" I hadn't. I wanted to borrow it but she wouldn't let it go--a sentiment I appreciated.

So I went out and bought the book. That was about six weeks ago. I slept with it next to my bed. Read all the fascinating information about each kind of grain and read the recipes, as Laurie Colwin taught me, as a good novel and not a cookbook. Then I started making grocery lists for all Rebecca Wood weeks. This has continued for at least a month and no one has stopped eating long enough to thank me. But I want to thank Jeanie publicly. This gift of "The Splendid Grain" does not raise her in my esteem, it simply reminds me of how highly she is held (even though she would not lend me her copy).

You do need to add a salad or some steamed vegetable to the all Splendid Grain menu. But no protein need be added as she has every combination of chicken, prawns, tofu, you name it in the recipes. It is just a little light on salads or some kind of green stuff.

I have a mind to call Rebecca Wood and thank her for this book. She researched so thoroughly and cooked so plentifully for us, her readers. Rebecca wood covered it all. Ancient food from the Americas to a Norwegian friend's mother's recipes. From macrobiotics to blinis with caviar and Christmas Hen. Normally I am wary of someone trying to cover the whole world and every grain. Things tend to get diluted and hodge-podgy. Not so in "The Splendid Grain." Each recipe is crisp and novel.

I am grateful. It is the week after Christmas as I am writing and Hanukkah has passed into the winter. I have been made aware this year of how the traditions I find around me all stress this time of year as a time to bring light and warmth into your heart in this darkest time of the year. Rebecca Wood's book feels like a warm hearth to me, and a good friend cooking for you. I am grateful that I am out of the dark woods of parenting early childhood. I am grateful to Jeanie for bringing this book and a lot more into my life. The Splendid Grain came to me through a warm friend and I have shared it with my friends over the winter. I am grateful for the feeling of warmth and the book that has helped inspire me to share it.

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW,what a book!
I'm inspired by The Splendid Grain. I've been getting back to healthy eating and a healthful lifestyle after several years of being off track, and this book gives lots of great idea, recipes, information about getting those whole grains back into my diet.

Thank you for reminding me what is important.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a terrific cookbook! What wonderful flavors & textures
I have had so much fun (and great meals) trying recipes from this book. There are so many grains available to us, besides the everyday rice and corn, but if you are like me, you don't always know what to do with them. The Splendid Grain is full of terrific ways to use locally available grains such as Quinoa, Millet, Amaranth and Wild Rice. The book also contains excellent meat recipes such as the oatmeal and spice coated "Better than fried chicken." I took "Onions stuffed with Millet and sun-dried tomatoes" on our last camping trip and cooked them in the campfire. They were superb alongside smoked pork chops. Try the popped Amaranth cold breakfast cereal, or just sprinkle it on your next tossed salad for a boost of crunch and nutty flavor. It couldn't be easier to do. You will never make waffles with plain wheat flour again, once you try "Tef waffles" Tef tastes almost like hazelnuts, and combined with cinnamon it is truly a treat. I must say I was most amazed with the "Couscous Marmalade Torte," it is very tasty and very light (even with the whipped cream on top). It is the easiest and quickest dessert I have made in a long time, and all my guests wanted seconds! I highly recommend The Splendid Grain, it is a terrific resource, taking you from selection, storage and the cooking methods for specific grains to delectable recipes with a new twist. Put it in your shopping basket, you won't be sorry. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Tasty food if you are trying to kill yourself
I would guess anyone looking for a cookbook on grains would be thinking of healthy recipes that are also tasty.Well, you have come to the wrong cookbook.Make no mistake about it, the recipes are pretty delicious, but if I made a regular habit out of serving these butter & cream laden artery-cloggers at dinner, I would be slowly eating myself to death.To echo the earlier reviewer, look elsewhere for healthy recipes.

The 3 stars represent a combined rating.Because the recipes are tasty & pretty easy to prepare, I give the book 5 stars.Because of the utter lack of healthy recipes, despite the title leading you to believe otherwise, I give it 1 star.

Forewarned is forearmed.Enjoy these recipes, but don't overdo it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Tasty and creative, but not very healthy.
This book has a wealth of creative recipes for grains, and the ones I tried were delicious.The "Four Seasons Olympic Bran Muffins" are so good, you could easily forget they're bran muffins, but like manyrecipes in the book, they have a very high sugar content.Low fat isdefinitely not a priority in this book either. In many of the recipes, thewhole grain is a very minor ingredient. The book provides excellent generalinformation about each grain and is useful for creative inspiration, but ifyou want healthy recipes, look elsewhere. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I never thought bean dishes could be this tasty
I have never been a bean lover but am a vegetarian. So when I discovered More Easy Beans and found so many great recipes, especially for appetizers, I was hooked. I truly believe this is the best bean book I have ever used. Some recipes call for meat, but of course, everyone has a friend who likes red meat. What I really found helpful was the recipes all use a can of beans or allow you to make the beans from scratch. All the recipes I have tried are right on with the cooking times. Other books I have used produce bean mush at the end. I highly recommend More Easy Beans.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great recipes -- From the Exotic to the Everyday
Who knew beans were so versatile? This lively cookbook also provides a wealth of information on bean nutrition, varieties, preparation and availability. I consult it for exciting potluck appetizer recipes like creamy frijole dip and black bean tarts, exotic salads like white bean crab salad and adzuki fruit salad as well as everyday main courses such as chili (for which there are five variations) and wraps.

The recipes are usually quick, the directions are straightforward and the results are tasty and nutritious. This would be a great gift for the health conscious and vegetarians on your gift list!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best whole grain book available
This is by far the best whole grain book available using the powerful macrobiotic principles of healthy balance. I highly recommend it! The recipes are simple, easy to follow and clear. Since it is out of print, get it while used copies are still availble

3-0 out of 5 stars Watch out for the title!
Don't be fooled by the title of this book which should be more appropriately named, "The Whole Grain Japanese Macrobiotic Cookbook". That is what it is! That is ok, however I wrongly assumed what the contents were when I ordered it online. There are very few recipes for breads and 90%+ of the main recipes call for ingredients such as: mochi, burdock, nori, daikon, amazake, kombu, soba, etc... Being non-Japanese, I have no idea what these are and unfortunately, in a very rural community, I doubt I could find them. Also, if you are allergic to CORN, a lot of corn products are called for. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-read for anyone on a gluten-free diet!
This book tells you all you need to know to live a rich life without gluten. With gluten-laden products looming everywhere (who would've thought that teriyaki sauce contains gluten?) guidance from an expert on how to avoid contaminated foods is invaluable (the author has been on a gluten-free diet for over 15 years). With great humor, author Jax Lowell Peters explains how to be assertive yet charming when requesting gluten-free ingredients at restaurants and provides invaluable tips on what to do in numerous tricky food situations (what to do when the caviar is served with wheat crackers only?). The multi-language "I'm on a gluten-free diet" cards in the back of the book could prove meal-saving when trying to explain to the french-speaking waiter that you can't have anything made with a "roux". The book also provides detailed information on celiac disease, resources for products and organizations, tips on how to raise a child on a gluten-free diet and delicious recipes (anyone for a gluten-free biscotti?).

5-0 out of 5 stars "You're not dead."
... is the first line of the book. And after reading this book, you'll no longer occassionally wish you were. Bread - wheat - is such a huge part of the American diet that it seems like there's NOTHING to eat without it. This book is wonderfully funny, easy to read, and extremely informative. If you have celiac, or if you're close to someone who does, BUY THIS BOOK!

The only thing it's missing is info for those of us with both celiac and diabetes. (A common combo). Otherwise, I can't praise it enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars a must-have, for the wheat-intolerant "newbie"
I've had this book since late August '03, and already I have probably read through the entire thing about 4 or 5 times..and it's still great! Not only does it have tons of information, tips, & recipes, is HILARIOUS! Reading it makes me feel like maybe i'm not the biggest weirdo for having to dissect my food in front of everyone at a dinner party. I swear, any celiac/wheat intolerant person who reads this will finally be able to laugh out loud at all the funny/eccentric things (i.e. eating caviar w/ a spoon, bringing your own rice pasta to Italian restaurants) that one tends to go through with gluten/wheat intolerance. Especially after you've just been diagnosed (as I had), it's great to know that there's someone else out there who has the same annoying issues as i do (i.e. difficulty eating out at restaurants, dining with friends), and can offer some good advice on how to cope.

So, the next time you're down in the dumps because you had to sit through your neighbor's pizza party by munching on peanuts and carrot sticks (and gathering weird/pitiful looks from others at the same time), don't sit and mope..go and read "Against the Grain" and you'll be a happier camper!

2-0 out of 5 stars chatty but sloppy
Some of the advice in this book is great, especially on suggestions for enjoying meals socially without feeling like a freak. However, based on the title and the author's condition, it's easy to assume that the only foods recommended in the book are gluten-free, and that's not true. Several of the recipes and purchased-food recommendations are wheat-free, but not gluten-free, and are NOT clearly identified as such. I found the tone to be rather snobbishly superior, as well- perhaps a nice book for those in the caviar-eating set, but not written for the unprivileged who can not expect to be waited on hand and foot or to be able to afford all the specialty foods the author considers necessities.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Celiac's Bible
Along with the words, you have Celiac-Sprue Disease, your GI doctor should hand you this book and tell you to go home and read it. A diagnosis of Celiac seems overwhelming and the diet restrictive. The author uses humor and common sense along with personal experience to ease the pain and educate the consumer reading the book. Although a Gluten-Free diet is unlike any other, you can get a good, basic feel for it using this book. It helps to get one over the hump and on the road to wellness. I highly recommend this book. If you have Celiac Disease do yourself a favor and get it, if you have a friend or loved one with the disease show them that you care. ... Read more

Book Description

This seventh volume in an award-winning, superbly illustrated series delivers the last word on the world's favorite, inimitable grain

From ancient China's mountains and paddies to today's chic Western restaurants to the homesteads of the Caribbean, rice binds the world together. Here is the ultimate, authoritative, sumptuous guide to the genus Oryza: its history, lore, botany, and cultivation; important culinary varieties; and rice products from flour to pasta and vinegar to wine; cooking techniques for short, medium, and long grains; and seasoning and coloring, all the way to the bright red, green, and black rices of Asia and the Mediterranean. From the wok comes fried rice topped with a crunchy vegetable curry or spicy fish. The pilaf of Asia and the Balkans segues into Italy's risotto, maybe with eel or zucchini flowers, and then into a Spanish paella fragrant with saffron and a dozen more ingredients.

More than five hundred color photographs in this regal volume illustrate both step-by-step instructions and finished dishes, displaying the endless variety, versatility, and indispensability of this timeless staple. The Rice Bible makes a magnificent gift for any serious cook or gastronome.
