Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Food writer Mallorca (The Wheat-Free Cook) took up gluten-free cooking after being diagnosed with celiac disease. In this flavorful Italian collection, pasta-centered fare is the exception rather than the rule, but the majority of Mallorca's dishes require no special ingredients at all, a godsend for celiac sufferers often sent hunting for esoterica like celiac-free pasta and xanthum gum. They'll also expand their palates and recipe boxes with dishes like Cioppino, ten different risottos (naturally gluten-free), and rustic mains such as Braised Pork in White Wine with Savoy Cabbage, and Roman-Style Lamb Stew with Fennel. Those with a sweet tooth will appreciate desserts like Almond-Ricotta Cake and macaroons, though her Tiramisu, which requires home-made ladyfingers, calls for advance planning and preparation. Suggestions for a naturally gluten-free Italian pantry and celiac resources will further aid cooks on a wheat-free diet.

I was astonished when I read the "disappointed" review of Gluten-Free Italian, as there is a wonderful recipe for home-made pasta right on page 70 of the book! Both this and Jacqueline Mallorca's other book, The Wheat-Free Cook, are terrific; absolutely the best gluten-free cookbooks that I have seen. I've always loved to bake and cook, and when I finally accepted that I was now gluten-intolerant, I was devastated. I really didn't like the cookbooks with the "one size fits all" recipe substitutions for wheat flour. They just didn't work.
Ms. Mallorca is a professional cook, and obviously spent a lot of time and care creating each recipe. They are all delicious, healthy, simple to make, and easily adaptable if you need to make any substitutions. (I live at a high altitude, so that's important for me.) Her bread recipes are incredibly tasty. This was the one thing that I missed dreadfully when I gave up wheat, and honestly, I like these much better. There is a chapter listing the different ingredients in detail: everything can be ordered on the internet if necessary. She also has a video on her website showing how she makes pasta - very helpful. I use both of her cookbooks constantly. They have made adapting to gluten-free cooking uncomplicated and very enjoyable. Bless you, Jacqueline Mallorca!

This is a very nice Italian cookbook, with interesting insights into Italian food, comprehensible information on gluten and wheat issues and well-written recipes. While obviously a useful book for delicious gluten free cooking, it would be a nice addition to any cook's bookshelf. I have many cookbooks, and am able to eat gluten, but I find myself turning to this book when I want to make something appealing and delicious.

Some Gluten free cookbooks need a warning for those whose memory of taste is still fresh. This doesn't. The food is tasty, flavourful and authentic Italian with or without the gluten free side.

I appreciate her work and I am finding my kindle making it's way into my kitchen a lot lately. Thank you Jaqueline for a wonderful book that gives me back Italian cuisine now that I've gone gluten free. I'm finding this book and Elisabeth Hasselbeck's Deliciously G Free, along with 20 Incredible Coconut flour recipes by Marissa Paine and Carol Fenster's 1000 gluten free recipes are the ones I refer to over and over again.

My first recipe was the Italian Baguette. It is really hard to find good bread recipes that end up airy and light without being overly dry or too moist. I made these baguettes for a kid's birthday party and the non-gf kids all ate it and loved it -- never realizing it wasn't a regular sub sandwich. If that is not success, I don't know what is! I admit at first I was a bit skeptical that I could actually make anything remotely like a baguette, but it came out wonderfully!

I was skeptical thinking making a delicious gluten free focaccia, pizza and italian style baguettes were impossible. But that's not true. Every recipe I tried so far is clear and the results delicious. Even my old fashion 93 year old Italian mother in law loves all the recipes I prepared from the book. Every one of them came out delicious. I was so impressed with this book and how delicious the recipes were that I purchased her other book -- wheat free. Her directions are easy to follow. She also gives you ideas on substituting ingredients if you don't have them on hand. She gives you helpful tips throughout the book. If you are on a gluten free diet, this is a must have book.

This is great, because I love Italian food. But, even when you use gluten free pasta, some of the sauces are off limits. Now I can enjoy classic Italian favorites at home.

This is a wonderful collection of delicious recipes. While there are plenty of Italian specialities that naturally do not include wheat, such as risotto and polenta, it's nice to have such a treasure trove of wheat alternatives. I like that most of the recipes are for fresh ingredients but a portion are "off the shelf" for those busy nights. The only thing missing is a recipe for plain, basic potato gnocchi.

At the time I eliminated wheat products from my diet, about ten years ago, I researched deep and wide for alternative cookbooks and resources. Much of what was written then provided basics of shopping for and switching over your pantry to, wheat/gluten-free ingredients. There also was a small group of books dedicated to from scratch wheat-free baking of breads and desserts. What I like about this new (2009) entry into the field is that many main vegetable dishes, soups, and poultry, meats and fish recipes are included, with Italian influence and spices. This is a great addition to your cookbookshelf if you are well established in your wheat-free diet, and are wanting to add the variety of Italian cooking to your meals. If I had one reservation about this book, it would be that I would like to have seen more photos of finished meals.
