In The Spelt Cookbook, Helga Hughes shares an exciting collection of over 175 easy-to-prepare recipes that marry the rich taste of golden spelt with a variety of fresh and flavorful ingredients, including Old-World Buttermilk Waffles, White Bean Chili with Elbows, and Hazelnut Granola.
Whether you are looking for a wheat alternative, or simply want to mix up your mealtime routine, The Spelt Cookbook is the only guide you’ll need to the delicious world of spelt cookery.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Obscure ingredients I bought this for a friend and leafed through it before I gave it to her. Lots of the ingredients are very obscure and hard to find. I'm an avid baker and there were hardly any mainstream desserts to make with spelt. This book is something to pick up when it's really on sale for someone that only uses spelt.
