Our area of eastern Washington and northern Idaho, the Palouse Region, grows a third of the lentils in the United States.

Lentils are versatile, nutritious, and always add a special flair to cooking, whether used in cakes, pies and breads, in preserves, as a salad ingredient, in wines or brandies, or any number of other imaginative ways. In Lentil Delights Cookbook, author Karen Jean Matsko Hood presents her collection of more than 250 exciting lentil recipes that will be sure to please everyone! Inside, you will also find some fascinating reading regarding this legume's history, folklore, cultivation, and much more.
