"As a scientist in the kitchen, it’s always fascinating to follow along with the experiments of other kitchen tinkerers, particularly those working under a completely different set of constraints. Elizabeth Barbone’s writing and recipes for the gluten-free diet are consistently well-researched, comprehensive, sprinkled with fun, relevant, personal anecdotes, and, most importantly, are downright delicious-sounding."
-- J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, Managing Editor of SeriousEats.com and author of The Food Lab, March, 2012
