The Miller's Daughter: Unusual Flours & Heritage Grains: Stories and Recipes from Hayden Flour Mills 

by Emma Zimmerman

 

The Miller's Daughter is a cookbook at the forefront of America's heritage grain movement with 80 glorious recipes and beautiful, candid stories that celebrate community, agriculture, sustainability, and the place of grains at every table.

Emma Zimmerman with her father, Jeff, is a rebel and a dreamer on the outskirts of rural Phoenix. In a country overrun by corporate, homogenized grain farming, the daughter-father team are champions of rare and near-extinct varieties of ancient grains. The rejuvenation of their business, Arizona's Hayden Flour Mills, is an unlikely tale of an underdog rising from the Wild West.

In The Miller's Daughter, Emma shares her stories of entrepreneurship and personal growth alongside stunning documentary photography. Her insights show readers how grains can and should be used to elevate our meals every day.

Organized by grain (from farro to white sonora to red fife to corn, barley, durum and rye), Emma's collection of recipes covers breakfast, sweet, savory and mains within each chapter. Think recipes for chickpea cookies, pink polenta with crispy pancetta, sprouted barley salad, farro crust tart, white sonora berry salad – and much more.

This is the true and captivating story of a mill restarted, of near-extinct grains rescued, and a whole host of nourishing dishes created and enjoyed along the way.
