I have most of Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa cookbooks. They have such great recipes and I always find them easy to follow with delicious results. I wouldn't call this Wheatberry Salad a fail by any means, but it definitely did not turn out the way I expected. The wheat berries took twice as long to cook as the instructions said, and I they didn't really turn "soft." It was more like "chewy."Nonetheless, it was an easy dish to make (I even made pesto sauce while waiting for the wheat berries to cook) and I look forward to having it for lunches this week.
I use Alessi coarse salt when I salt water for cooking
