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.
