A Photographic Guide to Great Grains Around L.A.

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

If you've been dining around Los Angeles lately, you might have been some unique grains sprouting up on menus. But there's no reason to be freaked out by things like freekeh. Quite the opposite in fact. In this photographic guide, we demystify some of these cereals, and give you a hint as to where you can find dishes that use them to their fullest. If you're feeling particularly inspired and would like to cook some of these grains up yourself, we recommend the excellent book Ancient Grains for Modern Meals by Maria Speck.
