1) the hints she gives for shortcuts, modifications, substitutions, and advice about ingredients to use/not use - not only helpful but invaluable to me as I expand my gluten free repertoire
2) she tackles a fairly broad variety of recipes, from breads and baked goods to assorted appetizers, salads & sides, soups, gravies, and entrees
3) the resource pages in the back are helpful as I am discovering more and more gluten free foods I never knew existed; many of these are only available online but at least I know they're out there!
4) the section with all her flour blends is priceless--I learned a lot reading about her different blends
About the only disappointment for me is I wish every recipe had a photo to go with it, but I'm sure that would have made for a much more expensive book. The center section of photos is beautiful and inspiring.
Buy this book and amaze your family and friends!
The other recipes that I cannot wait to try are: Apple Carmel Monkey Bread, Stir Fry Asian, Gilbet stock, PF Chang Style Chicken in Lettuce Wraps, Mexican Pizza and the list goes on. I wanted a book that had something other than desserts which this book has, but has a whole lot more and you do not have to have a bread machine to make the breads.
I am Gluten, Dairy, Oats, Refined Sugar and presevative free.
I do look for good recipes for baked goods, though - and like most authors of gluten-free cookbooks, Hillson lists ingredients for her own flour blends in an early chapter and refers back to them in her recipes, so that you either have to have premixed bins of her five special blends on hand, or flip back and forth and calculate the exact amount of each ingredient you need. Calculation isn't easy, either - her two bread flour blend recipes total 3 cups plus 13 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon for one and 8 cups and 15 tablespoons for the other, and the others are equally hard on the pocket calculator. Mine has been kept in the kitchen since cookbooks with these mixes began to proliferate 6 or 8 years ago. Three of her mixes call for flours that aren't among the 6 or 8 I normally keep on hand - amaranth in two cases, chickpea in the third. (The others she uses are white rice and sorghum flours, along with corn or potato starch and tapioca starch. She does include a flour substitution chart I haven't tried using.)
I have tried several cake recipes using the pastry flour mix (sorghum and white rice flours and cornstarch plus xanthan gum and salt).Read more ›
