With a focus on delicious, quick, family-friendly recipes (most of which just happen to be healthy and gluten free), Maria Speck not only promotes an understanding of and appreciation for ancient grains, but she crafts recipes that everyone will love.
In this exclusive, intimate event, Maria will talk about cooking with these grains, purchasing them, storing them, and her approach to transforming them into breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
From black rice to red quinoa to golden Kamut berries, ancient grains are showing up on restaurant menus and store shelves in abundance. Yet in home kitchens, many fear that whole grains are too difficult and time-consuming to prepare. In Simply Ancient Grains, Maria makes cooking with these fascinating and nourishing staples easy and accessible with sumptuous recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Maria’s tips and simplified approach take whole grain cooking to the next level by amplifying the flavor and enduring beauty of these nutritious grains.
The price of this event includes a detailed talk and Q&A session on all aspects of cooking with ancient grains, a tasting of several of the recipes from Maria’s book, a copy of Simply Ancient Grains that Maria will sign at the end of the evening, and beer or wine.
