"Carreno has impeccable creds on the seemingly ubiquitous yet still growing phenomenon of one-bowl meals. . . . her take on value-added whole grains is deeply authoritative and inspiringly delicious. . . . [the] determinedly 'flavor first' approach draws on influences modern eaters want."
"Carolynn Carreno is perhaps the most honest and knowledgeable cook I know. She is fearless in her pursuit of authenticity and flavor, and she creates recipes that are filled with her unstoppable quest for deliciousness. She is truly a cook's cook."—Jonathan Waxman
"When Carolynn told me she was working on BOWLS OF PLENTY, I knew it was a great idea, and also that she was the one to write it. Carolynn is the rare combination of cook who has a 'chef' mentality. . . . Combining those two sensibilities to create 100 grain-based recipes, well, those will be grain bowls that I will want to eat for a very long time."—Nancy Silverton
"Carolynn Carreno is both a knowledgeable writer and an entertaining one, a writer with a flair for language and a talent for storytelling. She can make any topic interesting, even fun, to read about."—Colman Andrews
