Gluten-free foods needn't be plain or unappetizing. When there's a food allergy such as celiac disease, wheat intolerance or lactose intolerance, it usually means cooking two separate meals. That's no longer the case, however, thanks to the imaginative recipes in Complete Gluten-Free Cookbook. Everyone can enjoy these tantalizing recipes, which include everything from baked goods, pasta dishes, appetizers and family meals to mouthwatering desserts.
The Best Gluten-Free Family Cookbook features sensational recipes for baked goods, desserts, and main meals -- foods that are typically avoided in gluten-free diets. Accompanying each recipe is a wealth of tips and techniques for novice and experienced cooks alike.
Based on extensive feedback, we’ve learned that gluten-free home bakers prefer small batches, or yields, from their efforts. The reasons vary from space constraints (since people managing gluten intolerance typically require more products, which take up valuable cupboard, refrigerator and freezer space) to the high cost of gluten-free ingredients. Handy and specially created glossaries on equipment, techniques and ingredients are also included for those managing gluten intolerance.
