As you most likely already know, There's an incredible wealth of information squeezed into these two volumes. This one details the uses of Sweet Rice, Sorghum, Buckwheat, Teff, Cassava and Potato Flours. Gluten Free Baking 101 (as I call it) which discusses flours, starches, substitutions, egg replacers and alternate sugars starts out the book. Plus, I really love the interviews with all the other Gluten Free baking experts.
The recipes are:
SORGHUM FLOUR: Cheesy Cornbread Balls, Apple Cinnamon Waffles, Spinach & Shallot Souffles, Spicy Chipotle Jalapeno & Corn Muffins, PB&J Snack Crackers, Butternut Squash Pot Pie with Vegan Crust; YEAST-FREE VEGAN SANDWICH BREAD (I made this and loved it), Pineapple Upside Down Cake, and Lemon Crumb Cake.
BUCKWHEAT FLOUR: Buckwheat Crepe Tortillas, Buckwheat Tortillas, Buckwheat Molasses Bread, German Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches (my husband loves these), Chocolate-Coated Apricot Brownie Bites, Sesame Buckwheat Breakfast Cookies, Winter-Spice Pancakes (soo good), and Apple Kuchen.
TEFF FLOUR: Whole Grain Dinner Rolls (Egg-Free)- my husband said "they're just like bread!Read more ›
Although the names of the non-wheat flours may sound exotic at first, the authors The first part of this slim volume is packed full of exactly what one needs to know to accommodate one's needs by telling the reader how to make satisfying substitutions. In addition to providing tips regarding which non-wheat flour(s) can be substituted one for the other, sugar-free and dairy-free adaptations are also covered.
Then you get to the great recipes! This is not a case of buying a book with hundreds of recipes, but only find a very few palatable - every one of the 50+ recipes is enticing. And there is something good to try for each flour, so that flour purchases can be made step-by-step. The result is that the reader stops thinking about what cannot be eaten, because the things that *can* be eaten are so delicious!
The authors also provide a list of additional resources, including additional cookbooks, magazines, and informative websites to help the reader find additional information and recipes.
All in all, I'm very pleased that these are my first purchases following the very-recent diagnosis of my wheat allergy.
The cookbook is well-illustrated, easy to follow, and provides information about favorite flours, and about other authors.
