Regular readers will know that I’ve become really interested in whole grain baking lately, and it’s all because of Good to the Grain: Baking with Whole-Grain Flours, a lovely new book by Kim Boyce. Boyce doesn’t just stick to more well-known whole grain flours, like whole wheat – she has recipes that use amaranth flour, oat flour, quinoa flour, and more.
And I love her approach to whole grain baking – she’s interested in the health properties of whole grain flours, to be sure, but her recipes really seek to bring out the best qualities in each grain. This means she’s not afraid to mix some whole-grain flour with white flour, if it results in a better product. And whole wheat chocolate chip cookies? Pear and buckwheat pancakes? Maple danish? Um, who wouldn’t want to make these recipes?
Well, I have a free copy of “Good to the Grain” to give away to one lucky reader, courtesy of Abrams books! Just become a fan of ModernDomestic on Facebook by Friday, noon (Eastern time). I’ll randomly select one Fan using Random.org to receive the book and will contact you via Facebook for a mailing address (note: I can only ship to US addresses).
So become a fan of ModernDomestic today! And you too could be making whole grain baking sexy in your kitchen.
Edited to add: I got a couple people asking if people who were already fans would be eligible for the giveaway – the answer if yes. I’ll be randomly choosing from all fans – not just new fans – although for propriety’s sake I’m going to exclude my family members (sorry Mom). There are just so many benefits to becoming a ModernDomestic fan.
