When you open your kitchen cupboards do images of the rugged mountains of South America the colourful tablelands of Africa and the fertile river valleys of the Middle East dance before your eyes?
If not, you have yet to discover Amaranth, Quinoa, Spelt, Kamut and Teff, the quintet of nutritional powerhouses known as the ancient grains.
The legends behind their origins many millennia past, their loss over time and their ultimate modern revival – literally tell the story of civilisation.
