As featured in The Toronto Star and on Guest of a Guest, The Indepdendent"Trendy, inventive..." -Toronto Star"Grains are having a culinary moment. But the question is, can grain-based dishes actually be enjoyable?... [Nik Williamson] has produced a spirited response with this cookbook, featuring 90 recipes, sweet and savoury, for all times of day. Oats and rye with baked plums, cherries and pickled hazelnuts dispelled my misgivings. Hearty combinations such as farro with goat's curd, fava beans and pancetta are perfect winter warmers. And [...] there's a handy illustrated grain guide." -The Lady"Coming from the man behind the now-closed Porridge Cafe, this has 90 recipes split into Healthy, Meat, Vegetable and Indulgent sections. Most involve about five minutes of preparation and 30 minutes cooking time. The buckwheat, cherry, coconut yogurt and macadamia nut bowl I made was surprisingly filling, and the instructions were easy to follow." -Square Meal Magazine online"Exploring popular as well as lesser known varieties for use in meals throughout the day, the book demystifies an ingredient which we are all too often cautious to explore." -Evening Standard online"Thinking about building your dream library and brightening your coffee table with eye-candy and conversation starters? Look no further than Phaidon books." -Big Life Magazine"Elevates the humble bowl of porridge to quite another level." -Manor
