Imagine the many culinary directions a small piece of dough wrapped around a creative filling can take. Endless! Skip the traditional meat and seafood and substitute highest-quality intact grains such as Nerone Italian Black Rice, Greenwheat Freekeh™ and French Green Lentils. These savory sojourns—to North Africa, East Asia and India—are just the beginning.
