Pittsburgh offers more activities than much larger cities. For example, entertainment options abound in a city with its own ballet, opera, and symphony and visiting Broadway series. For the younger crowd, Pittsburgh is Kidsburgh (dinosaurs and so much more!). And locals and visitors alike enjoy a seemingly endless array of arts and cultural attractions—many bequeathed by the industrialists who defined the city’s past. Recognized for its renaissance, the area has a certain Old World charm that mixes harmoniously with the emerging high-tech culture. It’s also one of the country’s greenest regions in more than one way, offering premier outdoor recreation as well as a record number of sustainable buildings, many housing attractions open to the public. The surrounding vista stuns, with urban views that provide both chills and romance. And distinct neighborhoods reveal their own unique character, offering enticements in all corners. There’s much to do in the city’s heart or within a short drive. Smart and friendly, Pittsburgh promises a mighty welcome. And this book offers a guide to anyone who wants to make the most of their time in this hip and historic destination.
Reinhart begins with the simplest French bread, then moves on to familiar classics such as ciabatta, pizza dough, and soft sandwich loaves, and concludes with fresh specialty items like pretzels, crackers, croissants, and bagels. Each recipe is broken into "Do Ahead" and "On Baking Day" sections, making every step--from preparation through pulling pans from the oven--a breeze, whether you bought your loaf pan yesterday or decades ago. These doughs are engineered to work flawlessly for busy home bakers: most require only a straightforward mixing and overnight fermentation. The result is reliably superior flavor and texture on par with loaves from world-class artisan bakeries, all with little hands-on time.
America's favorite baking instructor and innovator Peter Reinhart offers new time-saving techniques accompanied by full-color, step-by-step photos throughout so that in no time you'll be producing fresh batches of Sourdough Baguettes, 50% and 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Loaves, Soft and Crusty Cheese Bread, English Muffins, Cinnamon Buns, Panettone, Hoagie Rolls, Chocolate Cinnamon Babka, Fruit-Filled Thumbprint Rolls, Danish, and Best-Ever Biscuits.
Best of all, these high-caliber doughs improve with a longer stay in the fridge, so you can mix once, then portion, proof, and bake whenever you feel like enjoying a piping hot treat.
From the Hardcover edition.
A new generation of bakers and millers are developing innovative flours and baking techniques that are designed to extract the grain’s full flavor potential—what Reinhart calls “the baker’s mission.” In this lushly photographed primer, Reinhart draws inspiration from these groundbreaking methods to create master recipes and formulas any home baker can follow, including Sprouted Sandwich Rye Bread, Gluten-Free Many-Seed Toasting Bread, and Sprouted Wheat Croissants.
In many instances, such as with sprouted flours, preferments aren’t necessary because so much of the flavor development occurs during the sprouting phase. For grains that benefit from soakers, bigas, and sourdough starters, Reinhart provides the precise guidance that has made him such a trusted expert in the field.
Advanced bakers will relish Reinhart’s inventive techniques and exacting scientific explanations, while beginning bakers will rejoice in his demystification of ingredients and methods—and all will come away thrilled by bread’s new frontier.
*Correction to the Sprouted Whole Wheat Bread recipe on page 63: The volume measure of water should be 1 ¾ cups plus 1 tablespoon, not 3 ¼ cups.

Now Ms. Roden gives us more than 800 recipes, including the aromatic variations that accent a dish and define the country of origin: fried garlic and cumin and coriander from Egypt, cinnamon and allspice from Turkey, sumac and tamarind from Syria and Lebanon, pomegranate syrup from Iran, preserved lemon and harissa from North Africa. She has worked out simpler approaches to traditional dishes, using healthier ingredients and time-saving methods without ever sacrificing any of the extraordinary flavor, freshness, and texture that distinguish the cooking of this part of the world.
Throughout these pages she draws on all four of the region's major cooking styles:
- The refined haute cuisine of Iran, based on rice exquisitely prepared and embellished with a range of meats, vegetables, fruits, and nuts
- Arab cooking from Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan--at its finest today, and a good source for vegetable and bulgur wheat dishes
- The legendary Turkish cuisine, with its kebabs, wheat and rice dishes, yogurt salads, savory pies, and syrupy pastries
- North African cooking, particularly the splendid fare of Morocco, with its heady mix of hot and sweet, orchestrated to perfection in its couscous dishes and tagines
From the tantalizing mezze--those succulent bites of filled fillo crescents and cigars, chopped salads, and stuffed morsels, as well as tahina, chickpeas, and eggplant in their many guises--to the skewered meats and savory stews and hearty grain and vegetable dishes, here is a rich array of the cooking that Americans embrace today. No longer considered exotic--all the essential ingredients are now available in supermarkets, and the more rare can be obtained through mail order sources (readily available on the Internet)--the foods of the Middle East are a boon to the home cook looking for healthy, inexpensive, flavorful, and wonderfully satisfying dishes, both for everyday eating and for special occasions.

Praise for Whole Grains For a New Generation:
“These days, plenty of folks have chosen to eat lighter and make whole grains and legumes a large part of their diets. Liana Krissoff . . . make[s] a convincing case for the change, showing how adding hearty and delicious grains will enhance any diet. But it’s not a strict vegetarian guide; many of the recipes do have meat—long-braised pork with grits and cilantro-chile-lime sauce, for instance. Don’t skip the introduction, a primer on the buying, storing, substituting and cooking of numerous grains.” —Detroit Metro Times
“Whole Grains belongs in everyone’s kitchen.” —Buffalo Spree magazine

The Rice Diet Program in Durham, North Carolina, was one of the first medical facilities in America to use diet as the primary way to treat disease. On this high-complex-carb, low-fat, and low-sodium whole-foods diet, “Ricers” lose weight faster, more safely, and more effectively than people on any other diet. Men lose on average twenty-eight to thirty pounds and women on average nineteen to twenty pounds per month! The Rice Diet also detoxes your body, ridding it of excess water weight and toxins from processed foods and the environment. The program's results have been documented by extensive studies and confirmed by thousands of people who report amazing weight loss, as well as immediate improvement in such conditions as heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension.
Here’s how it works: The Rice Diet strictly limits salt and sodium-rich ingredients. Salt, like refined sugar, is an appetite stimulant, so when you reduce salt intake, you lose water weight and are less inclined to overeat. The Rice Diet also limits saturated fats and instead relies on carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables, grains, and beans) as the main source of nutrition. The fiber cleanses your system and satisfies you so you feel full quickly. The Rice Diet makes it easy to limit calories; when you’re eating foods that truly satisfy your hunger, it’s a challenge to eat 1,500 calories per day!
To make it easy to follow the program, The Rice Diet Solution includes hundreds of tasty, filling, easy-to-prepare recipes—some from the Rice House kitchen, others inspired by major chefs and adapted to Rice Diet standards.
From Prasenjeet Kumar, the #1 bestseller of the “Cooking In A Jiffy” series of books, comes the ultimate rice cookbook that anyone looking for gluten-free food should just grab with both hands.
Cataloguing the legendary “love affair” that Indians have with rice.......
The book narrates how rice forms an intrinsic part of every Indian’s life from birth till death.
Every religious ceremony has to involve rice.
Rice is stuck on the red vermillion that is applied to your forehead as akshat.
Rice is poured into the holy fire lit during religious ceremonies as an offering to the gods.
Rice is sprinkled over guests, worshippers and the newlyweds to bless them, with the incantation: “May your life be full of dhan (wealth) and dhanya (rice).”
Rice is “popular” because it is one of the easiest foods to digest.
Being totally gluten free, it is the best food for infants when they have to be weaned.
For young adults and old people too, who may have wheat allergies or even celiac disease, adopting a rice diet would be what every sensible doctor would prescribe as the first step to adopting a totally gluten free diet.
For the same reason, rice is great for relieving digestive disorders like diarrhoea, dysentery, colitis and even morning sickness.
This is why 70% of the world, including USA and northern Canada, grows and consumes rice.
Rice grows in almost any part of the world which is wet and humid and NOT colder than 21 degree Celsius (70 degree F).
There is hardly any type of soil in which rice cannot be grown including alkaline and acidic soils.
Rice in India is grown from below sea-level to an elevation of 2000 metres in the Himalayan regions.
Indians cook rice with anything and everything; with lentils, veggies, meat, fish, chicken and seafood.
In addition, they have plain or spiced rice as a bed for curries and ground rice for making all kinds of pancakes like appams and dosas.
Rice flour is also used for crisping savouries called pakoras.
Most temples serve as prasadam (blessings) the Indian rice pudding called kheer or payasam.
And then in many Himalayan states, from Ladakh to Sikkim, fermented rice is used for making the potent brew called chhang.
In this background, this rice cookbook presents a total of 35 mouth-watering rice dishes, including 20 dishes where rice cookers can be used. There are eight plain rice recipes, five for cooking rice with lentils, five each for cooking rice with vegetables and meats, five ways to use rice in snacks and seven as desserts.
There is no Chhang recipe, sadly because that is one dish that, as Prasenjeet says, is not made in his house!

**BONUS Link inside: For a Limited Time Only: The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Rice the Indian Way Available at NO COST if you purchase this book**
This is simply the ultimate vegetarian protein cookbook.
We all know that as the cheapest and most versatile sources of protein available to mankind, lentils have been cultivated and consumed from the time immemorial.
Lentils are mentioned in religious books such as the Bible, Quran and the Vedas.
Lentils were so important for those long sea voyages that the Romans named their emperors after the most common legumes: Lentulus (lentil), Fabius (fava), Piso (pea), and Cicero (chickpea).
And yet, lentils came to be almost forgotten in the modern post-20th century world with easy availability of red meat and the rise of fast food joints.
Now thanks to scientists and expert bodies like the Mayo Clinic, we know that lentils are actually better than meat.
Lentils are actually the “Healthiest Food” in the World.
* Lentils are good for a Healthy Heart: Lentils contain significant amount of folate and magnesium, both doing wonders for your heart.
* Lentils replenish Iron Needed for Energy: Lentils are rich in Iron, which is a vital component of energy production and metabolism in the body.
* Lentils are low in cholesterol: Lentils, unlike red meat, are low in fat, calories and cholesterol. They are also somewhat lower in oxalic acid and similar chemicals which cause stone formation in kidneys and result in gout, a painful affliction of joints caused by the deposition of crystals.
* Lentils are rich in fibre: If you are looking for ways to reduce constipation, try Lentils as they contain a high amount of dietary fibre, both soluble and insoluble.
˃˃˃ The way Indians cook lentils is unmatched by any other cuisine on Planet Earth.
No one can cook lentils the way Indians do.
This is because almost every Indian meal has to have a lentil dish, as dal (soup), curry, snack or dessert. So they have centuries of expertise in turning lentils in whichever way you want.
On the other hand, most western cook books would, at the most, recommend baking lentils with cheese, putting them in hamburgers, having them with sausages and casseroles or making lentils stew.
One is, of course, not counting the lentils sprouts salad or the famous students’ dorm dish of baked beans (straight from the can) as well as the West Asian “sauce” hummus, without which no Lebanese meal can be termed complete.
There is nothing wrong if you want to have your lentils this way.
˃˃˃ But if you want to experiment, and wish to embark upon a roller coaster culinary adventure, you must look at Indian cuisine.
“The Ultimate Guide to Cooking Lentils the Indian Way” lets you savour, in this background, as many as twenty most popular “Home Style” dal recipes; ten curries; six lentil dishes cooked with rice; eleven snacks; three kebabs; three lentil stuffed parathas; and five desserts.
˃˃˃ It is said that without carrying Sattu or roasted chickpea flour with them, for sustenance on those long and arduous treks, Buddhist monks from Bihar could NOT have spread Buddhism to far off places from Afghanistan and Tibet to Korea!
Still don’t believe about India’s robust lentil tradition?

The only wheat in existence that has never been hybridized or modified, einkorn grew thousands of years ago in the Fertile Crescent. Carla Bartolucci came across it when searching for an alternative grain for her daughter Giulia, who was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity in 2008. Einkorn has remained unaltered for thousands of years, which allows many, including Giulia—who suffered from mood swings, asthma, and digestive problems—to eat wheat without symptoms. Amazed by her daughter’s health transformation, Carla became a champion of this little-known, nutrient-packed grain.
Einkorn shares 100 delicious recipes for working with the grain and its flour in a wide variety of flavorful dishes, such as Yogurt Blueberry Muffins, Spinach Lasagna Bolognese, Neapolitan Pizza Margherita, and Soft & Chewy Ginger Cookies—as well as sourdough and yeasted breads like Classic French Boule and buttery Sweet Potato Rolls. This book also explores einkorn’s history, unique genetics, and superior nutrient content, while sharing Carla’s tips for using it to its full baking and cooking potential.
With eighty-five beautiful color photographs, Einkorn will introduce home cooks to a delicious ancient grain that can transform the way they eat for the better by adding more nutrition and flavor to the foods they love.

Daniel Fast is a partial fast meaning that rather
than refraining from all food, during the Daniel Fast you can partake of a
strictly limited diet over an extended period of time. Many people have an
inner desire for better health, but they can’t discipline themselves to avoid
junk food, and other foods that are not good for their health, then this fast
is meant to teach self-discipline and provide a focus on spiritual matters
through self-denial. It is 21 Days Fast to restrict commonly enjoyed foods
as an act of worship and consecration to God. Avoiding caffeine, alcohol, and
artificial flavorings and preservatives, meat, eggs, dairy, and sweet foods
also eliminates most fat and cholesterol, in addition to drinking extra water,
can have a detoxifying effect on the body. With the main portion of the fast
made up of fruits and vegetables, the diet provides plenty of fiber, vitamins,
and antioxidants, resulting in weight loss, lowered cholesterol, and better control
of blood glucose levels. The Daniel Fast is a very healthy way to eat!

Cooking foods other than rice in a rice cooker is like baking a layer cake in an Easy-Bake oven: best approached with patience, curiosity and something to snack on in the meantime.
A basic rice cooker consists of a nonstick metal bowl set inside a plastic-and-metal housing, with a heat source on the bottom. To cook plain rice: add rice, measure water, press start, and walk away. The machine brings the mixture to a boil, reduces the heat for a prolonged simmer, and then switches to a very low setting to keep the cooked rice at serving temperature.
How does the machine know when the rice is done? A built-in thermostat tracks the temperature of the bubbling mixture of rice and water. When the water boils and turns to steam, the temperature in the pot begins to rise, which signals the cooker to switch to warm.
But it’s easy to override the rice cooker’s small brain. Press the “cook” button, melt butter in the bowl, and sweat a finely diced shallot in it until soft — then add rice, broth and saffron strands, and start the machine again to make a daffodil-yellow pilaf.
