From breakfast to midnight snacks, grains are healthy and add delicious diversity to your diet. In this class, you will learn the secrets to obtaining great grains at home, such as how to make steel cut oats in one minute. Learn new techniques and tools to give you the building blocks of whole grain cooking, even for busy weeknight meals. You will discover sweet and savory recipes such as Grains, Greens, and Fruit Salad; Oat-based Smoothies; rich Cinnamon-scented Lamb Stew with Wheat Berries; Mussels with Farro and White Wine; and dramatic Black Quinoa with Golden Beets, Sumac, and Cumin. You'll explore the uses of grains, pseudo-cereals, and seeds in cooking and baking, including the use of whole grains in desserts such as Black Rice Pudding with a hint of Rose, chewy Fruit and Nut Bar Cookies, Rye Berries with Harissa-maple Glazed Carrots and Roasted Onions, and Barley with Green Butter Oatmeal Peanut Butter Lace Cookies. Rediscover whole grains for a healthy heart and happy table. A $40 food fee is payable to the instructor at the first class.
