If you’ve been following along, you may remember my struggle with going to ALT summit and my mini-freak out about life. I wrote goals and dreams, some of which I wasn’t (and still am not) sure how to even achieve.
Sometimes though, hard work pays off.
Shortly after that post, I was contacted by a editor who had an awesome idea for a cookbook: grinding flours at home. At first I wasn’t sure this project was for me. A book all on flours? Seemed a bit overwhelming! But after I thought about it, I fell more and more in love with the idea (plus, I was about to finish my job and the timing was perfect). I’m a huge proponent of bulk-bins (and all things grains, beans, and nuts) and here was my chance to show a second use for all of those things. I saw this book as a natural extension of this site and one more way I can show that eating unprocessed foods is pretty awesome.
So, I wrote a proposal, got it accepted, and have been working like mad ever since!
I’ve been keeping it a bit of a secret but I received the cover for the book today and couldn’t keep it any longer! The book will include 30+ different kinds of flours you can grind at home along with recipe ideas on how to use each one! I’m hoping it will open up a new avenue to all those grains/beans/nuts/seeds you hopefully already have stashed in your cupboards.
Be on the look-out for the book next summer, published by Fair Winds Press. I couldn’t be happier with the progress so far and I think this will be a great resource for the unprocessed kitchen!
Thank you so much for your support and hopefully you are as excited as I am!
