About the Expert
Carla Bartolucci came across einkorn when searching for an alternative grain for her daughter Giulia, who was diagnosed with gluten sensitivity. The only wheat in existence that has never been hybridized, einkorn has remained unaltered for thousands of years, which allows many people with gluten sensitivity to eat wheat without adverse reactions. Bartolucci is the author of the cookbook Einkorn: Recipes for Nature’s Original Wheat (Clarkson Potter, 2015). She and her family divide their time between Modena, Italy, and Connecticut.
