Sufferers of celiac disease used to find it hard to pursue a gluten-free regimen. Thanks to a growing awareness of this disorder and of food allergies, nutritionists and chefs have come together to generate a balanced diet with plenty of flavors and extensive variety to assuage the celiac's appetite. Hagman's Gluten-Free Gourmet series of cookbooks has added another volume: The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Comfort Foods. Her latest recipe collection begins with a review of the various grains that lack gluten and the flours that can be produced by milling them. Mixtures of rice, potato, tapioca, and cornstarch--plus flour from exotic beans--provide texture, flavor, and nutrition to foods without resorting to forbidden wheat. This allows celiacs to relish formerly taboo comfort foods such as "macaroni" and cheese, chicken-fried steak, lasagna, rye bread, biscuits, pie, and a host of other heretofore inaccessible foods.
