Review

A delightful collection of creative recipes that use fruits, vegetables, nuts, and legumes...adding both flavor and nutrition to meals. -- Shelley Case, B. Sc., RD, Author, Gluten Free Diet, (Case Nutrition Consulting, 2002)

Fabulous recipes, many contributed by celebrated chefs, paired with tantalizing watercolors make Cooking Gluten-Free! a welcome collection addition. -- Living Without Magazine, Fall 2003

This book meets a need for gourmet dishes without gluten. We are ordering for our dietitian and parent resource center. -- Phillip I. Tarr, M.D. Director, Division of Gastroenterology, Dept. of Pediatrics, Washington Univ. School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri

From the Publisher

One of the most challenging problems of cooking gluten-free is finding a flour mix that actually creates baked goods that are moist and delicious. When Karen Robertson discovered the flour mix featured in Cooking Gluten-Free! she decided to make it her personal mission to spread the good news to others in the gluten-free world. Additionally, she thought it was important to create a beautiful, uplifting book with every day recipes for the gluten intolerant person. These goals helped shape the direction of Cooking Gluten-Free! while celebrity chefs enthusiastically contributed gluten-free meals to tantalize the palate. Cooking Gluten-Free! recently received the Benjamin Franklin Award in the Health/Nutrition catagory. This award celebrates excellence in editorial and design. Judges include media reviewers, bookstore and library buyers, artists, writers, and non-competing publishers. Over 1600 entries were received for this years'competition.

We had Thanksgiving at our house and no one noticed that apple pie was GF!!!

I've been cooking GF for 6 years, and for most of that time I could improvise recipies that were MUCH better than the usual GF cookbooks.

I found this wonderful book through my family -- my mother bought it to help cook for my sister, who has Celiac Disease.

Format: Paperback
Finally, a gluten-free cookbook with recipes for 2000's ! I was diagnosed at age 30 with Celiac Disease, and sorely missed my old way of eating. The first Gluten/Wheat free books I purchased seemed to have recipes from the 70's like tuna casserole, etc. (open a can of gluten free mushroom soup and pour it over gluten-free pasta, UGH!) I didn't eat that way before my diagnosis, and certainly didn't want to start. Also, I enjoy entertaining and it is important to me that when I cook for others, no one but me knows that the food is gluten-free. This cookbook features recipes I can serve my friends & family members with pride. For instance I served the blueberry muffins at a baby shower, and baked them for neighborhood firefighters to rave reviews. The last time I made the cornbread, there were no leftovers because my non-celiac friends all ate second and third helpings.If you are looking for recipes featuring FRESH seasonal ingredients, then this is the cookbook for you. I can't recommend it enough!

I've been cooking GF for 6 years, and for most of that time I could improvise recipies that were MUCH better than the usual GF cookbooks.
But someone made the leap forward! The baked goods in this book use the state of the art flour combinations that allow you to make cookies, muffins, pizza crust, even TORTILLAS (!!!) that are EXACTLY the texture and flavor of wheat. No one even knows they are GF until you can't help yourself and start bragging :D
But this marvelous book doesn't stop there. Every entree is THE BEST entree of its kind I've ever cooked or eaten.
All sections of the book, from entrees to breakfast to desserts to baked goods has a wide range of recipies - from "basic staples of your menu" to "Blow the Socks off your guests at the Christmas Party or wedding!" This is delightful, as most cook books are either too simple to use for entertaining or too fancy for every day.
Honestly if you only ever buy ONE GF cookbook, give these people your money. Its the only one you'll ever need.

I was invited over to a fellow Celiac's house and bless her heart, she'd made three different varieties of gluten free baked goods. By far and away the BEST was the coffee cake recipe from this cook book. I tried not to make a pig of myself, but it was so good! It was light and fluffy [not gritty and dense like most GF breads and cakes]. I think I ate half all by myself! I'm not ashamed.

After a life time of eating gluten [too bad I know what stuff is "supposed" to taste like] I was diagnosed; I've been on the diet for 5 years now and have tried a lot of different avenues to get my dessert fix... this was the closest thing to the real deal. So if the coffee cake is any indication of the rest of the recipes in this book I'm gonna be one happy camper! [And my fellow Celiac assures me that this is the best GF cook book out there - we can all be happy for that!]

My youngest daughter had to go gluten-free last year. It was difficult to make that transition for her. She wanted what her friends had. Finally, I am able to do that for her with this book. Wonderful recipes, easy to make baked goods, the list goes on. My husband likes the gf brownies in this book as well or better than homemade regular brownies. I love some of the stews. I just can't say enough about this book. I am so glad I got it. We can eat well again.

Karen put a lot of effort into this book! We had Thanksgiving at our house and no one noticed that apple pie was GF!!! The green beans with pecan paste is simply fabulous. I was hoping for leftovers of this, but there were none. With this book, we can have pizza night like we used to. Next to try are the cutout cookies. This book has made our lives easier since finding out that both my son and I are Celiacs. My husband prefers the GF brownies-richer and more tasty! Please get this book. To Karen: When are you putting out another cookbook?

This book is a must have for gluten-free diet folks. The baking is outstanding--neither you nor your guests will be able to taste or see a difference in your desserts! The secret seems to be in incorporating the recommended recipe for "Wendy Wark's Gluten-Free Flour Mix" in recipes instead of other flour mixes. I use it in all of my baking now--nothing compares to it! Also, great notes & tips are added throughout the book.

I absolutely love this book. The recipes are easy to follow and actually taste good...(unlike some other more well known GF cookbooks). I made chocolate chip cookies today and I could not believe how wonderful they tasted...even better than wheat based cookies (seriously). I have also made several of the dinners and my husband who is not GF enjoys them greatly. As with any GF cookbook you will need to stock your pantry with a good variety of GF flours and staple products...but with the growing awareness of celiac disease many mainstream food markets are carrying these special products. This book is a must have. Enjoy.
