Read from the Book

About this Book I’ve always wanted to write a breakfast book. It’s the meal we all start with, the meal that ushers us into the day. Even more, I wanted to write a book that reflects the way I do breakfast, acknowledging the fact that what we eat looks different on a cold, gray morning in February than it does on a sunny morning in June. A busy Wednesday brings about different breakfast options than does a leisurely Sunday. Sure, some of that has to do with the available produce. But a lot of it has to do with what we’re drawn to in those different months or what our bodies crave. So I decided to split this book into seasonal chapters and further divide each chapter, noting which recipes are best for busy weekdays,  slow Sundays, or brunch. I hope you return to the book as the months pass, the seasons  change, and friends and family trickle in and out to join you at the breakfast table throughout the year.     In addition to a seasonal breakfast book, I wanted to write a somewhat personal book, beginning in the San Francisco Bay Area and ending in Seattle. A book that tracks  a particular season in my life, as much as the many breakfasts from that time—the story of a high school English teacher searching for a new school and landing in a bakery instead.

Editorial Reviews

“This is a brilliant book filled with whole-grain breakfast inspiration, and so much more. Megan is an entrepreneur, a storyteller, a friend, and my kind of cook (and baker!). With this book, she delivers a range of enticing, seasonally minded recipes to start the day, wrapped with her warm, generous, personal narrative. Breakfast Fried Rice, Huckleberry Cornmeal Custard, California Barley Bowl? She does  mornings right.” —Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day “Each page of Whole-Grain Mornings reveals a new grain I can’t wait to try, a story that makes me smile, and a recipe that gets me excited to roll out of bed in the morning. If you thought whole grains were only for the health conscious, this book will prove you wrong. Megan Gordon shows us how delicious whole grains really are, and how, when we bring joy and love into breakfast, it sets the tone for the entire day. This is truly a book for everyone, and for every morning.” —Alana Chernila, author of The Homemade Pantry “ Whole-Grain Mornings is an honest story of a woman following her dreams, both in love and business.
