I just had to post this from yahoo on January 5 th.
I have been waiting for this since ” gluten free” when the mainstream.
Yeh wheat ( with gluten ) is back….for some of us it never left!
There is a link to the entire article below. Also a link to the Grain Divide, which seems to be a wordpress site…fancy that.
There will be a wheat revolution.
Sure, there are still a lot of gluten-free recipe fans, but chefs like Marc Vetri are betting on a wheat revolution in 2015. Earlier this year, the Philadelphia native started milling his own flour in a grain mill above his eponymous restaurant. The reason? “We do it because it simply yields a better product,” Vetri said. “The resulting freshness, texture and, most importantly, flavor are like nothing I’ve ever experienced.” What’s more, restaurants are already partnering with producers to grow and mill grains like wheat, barley, buckwheat, and rye. And some chefs—like Vetri and Alex Stupak (who grinds his own masa at his New York taqueria, Empellón Al Pastor)—are milling in house. Michael Tusk, the chef-owner of San Francisco’s two-Michelin-starred Quince, predicts grain will be the next food stuff (consider chocolate, coffee, wine) to go “single origin” (from just one farm or geographical location). “I expect to see more awareness and discussion of monocultivar grains in the coming year,” says Tusk, who worked with chefs and food experts like Michael Pollan, Dan Barber, and Sean Brock on the documentary, The Grain Divide.
