“Barley is an incredible, versatile ancient grain that grows wonderfully across North America. It is full of fibre and a multitude of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It can be used in many different ways — from barley flour in your pancakes to pearl barley in your soup and in any meal in between. Canada is one of the top ten producers of barley, and this should be reason enough for home cooks to use this grain to add diversity to their meals. But if that, coupled with the significant health benefits, isn’t enough to entice, the wonderful nutty flavour and the abundant recipes in this book will help make barley either the star of a dish or a very strong supporting cast member.”
