{FSC Book Club} our next book choice is…

We read, we cook, we chat.
That is the FSC Book Club.

We are happy to announce the book selection for the 3rd Round of the FSC Book Club!

We will be reading and cooking our way through Whole Grains for a New Generation: Light Dishes, Hearty Meals, Sweet Treats, and Sundry Snacks for the Everyday Cook by the lovely Liana Krissoff, who also authored Canning for a New Generation. We had been tossing this book around as an idea and were delighted that so many of you have also been itching to cook more whole grains!

Whole Grains for a New Generation is the perfect winter cook-a-long guide and introduction (or re-introduction) to the range of whole grains. The book contains recipes for vegetarians, vegans, meat-lovers and our gluten-free crowd. It opens up with a comprehensive primer and glossary of whole grains- what are they, what are their nutritional benefits and what do you do with them. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert- it’s all in there!

The 3rd round of the FSC Book Club launches on February 1! We will once again be “meeting” over on Goodreads and checking in with each other all around the social media universe.

Want in? Here’s your mini-assignment between now and February 1:

  1. Sign up for a free account at Goodreads. Once you register, you can log in easily using your Facebook, Twitter or Google accounts if you’d like. Join the FSC Book Club & introduce yourself if you are a newbie!
  2. Follow @FSCBookClub on Twitter and “Like” From Scratch Club on Facebook too and follow our ‘FSC BOOK CLUB’ board on Pinterest. Be sure to use the hashtag #FSCBookClub on Twitter & Instagram so we can see your updates.
  3. Get your hands on a copy of Whole Grains for a New Generation. You can visit the FSC Pantry on Amazon to buy a copy of the book and all other book club selections. A small portion of sales from our shop will come back to FSC to help support our free book club. Think of it as a tiny tip jar to keep everything running smoothly.

We’ll announce more details and the “assignment” schedule here on the blog and over on Goodreads on February 1st. So grab a copy, sign up and get ready to cook. (You can read more about Goodreads and how to sign up for an account here).

    I went and poked around the book on Amazon last night.. was hoping for a Kindle version since space is at a minimum.. but looking at these pics, I might just pick up the “real” book. Besides, cooking requires getting pages full of schmutz and that’s not really a good idea on a tablet.

    Although we are “low carbing” it, when we do eat grains we try to make them as whole as possible..

    I’m in!

    Yes! I got a copy for about $5 last month. I don’t cook grains all that often, but I will be doing this one. (She also wrote my favorite canning book.)

    @Beni B. Kindle version on Amazon says it’s unavailable anyway. So weird.

    FAX – is this going to be available on Kindle?

    Awesome. Thanks for the excuse to buy myself a new book (or 2).

    Ordered the book a couple days ago from Amazon. Should receive it soon. Not sure how much I’ll be able to do with it before leaving for Florida & won’t be back ’til 2/28. Hmm… could photocopy a few recipes & see if could make at least 1 dish while staying at my cousin’s… it’s a possibility!
