Grains for Every Season
By Joshua McFadden, Martha Holmberg
2021 • Artisan
James Beard Award–winning author Joshua McFadden gives grains the same considered and wide-ranging treatment he did vegetables in this much-anticipated follow-up to the mega-successful Six Seasons.
Once called a “vegetable whisperer,” Joshua McFadden is now a grain whisperer too. To follow up the smashing success of Six Seasons, with nearly 225,000 books in print and named cookbook of the year by the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Bon Appétit, and USA Today, among others, McFadden gives us just as many flawless recipes to transform accessible grains into knock-your-socks off breads, pastas, and pizzas but also stir-fries, soups, and salads, and even desserts. With recipes organized into chapters by grain type and designated as gluten-free or not, readers will learn how best to prep, cook, and store the grain and then learn all the grain can do in dishes both savory and sweet, from Meatloaf with Barley and Mushrooms to Peanut Butter–Barley Cookies, from Oat Granola Bars to a super-fudgy Chocolate Oat Layer Cake with Chocolate Oat Milk Frosting, and from Beef and Swiss Chard Soup with Buckwheat to Buckwheat Cream Scones. Throughout the book there are expanded sections highlighting six seasonal variations on grain bowls, stir-fries, pizzas, pilafs, and more, to show how flexible and satisfying cooking with grains can be. Grains for Every Season gives readers more than 200 grain-based recipes for bigger flavors, better nutrition, and incredible meals.
