Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The latest addition to the rapidly expanding universe of gluten-free cookbooks is a breezy, friendly, and straightforward volume from the food and lifestyle editor at Delight Gluten-Free Magazine. It's full of no-nonsense advice (cheating on the diet is not an option and can lead to long-term complications, so resist temptation to cheat!) and—better yet—flavor. Divided into four sections, the book covers an array of recipes in the Italian, Asian, and Mexican genres, plus desserts. It's not for food snobs (the note at the start of the Italian section comes from the executive chef of the Maggiano's chain), but it does have a lot of accessible, tasty options. Italian dishes include creamy crab and green pea risotto, chicken marsala, and spinach gnocchi with gorgonzola cream sauce. (Note: The food is gluten-free, decidedly not fat-free). In the Asian section, there are shrimp and mint summer rolls; pineapple fried rice; and chicken with cashews. Papaya-cilantro salmon with coconut rice and strip steak with black beans, corn, and cilantro represent Mexico. Desserts range from bananas foster (easy to make sans gluten) to a more complex chocolate fudge cake. With this book, following a gluten-free diet is a fairly sweet prospect. (Apr.)

From the Back Cover

Give up the gluten, not the flavor!

You may have Celiac Disease, but that doesn't mean you can't spice up your meals every day of the week. In The Gloriously Gluten-Free Cookbook, Vanessa Maltin—with the help of three renowned chefs—gives you 125 Italian, Asian, and Mexican recipes that cut out the gluten without skimping on taste.

  • Keith Brunel of Maggiano's Little Italy offers Celiac-safe suggestions for approaching Italian cooking in a restaurant. In this chapter, you'll find all your favorite Italian staples, including creamy risottos, pastas, Chicken Parmesan, and even pizza, calzones, and breadsticks.

  • Katie Chin of Thai Kitchen and coauthor of Everyday Chinese Cooking presents an overview of Asian cuisine and staple ingredients. Then, she offers familiar Asian classics like Crunchy Vietnamese Spring Rolls, Shrimp Fried Rice, peanutty Pad Thai, sushi, and crispy tempuras.

  • Edgar Steele of Café Atlantico demystifies the flavors of Mexico and provides a variety of alternatives for gluten-free cooking. Then, he includes recipes for traditional Mexican dishes like Corn Tortilla Soup, sizzling Chicken Fajitas, empanadas, and—of course—tacos, as well as modern main dishes like Grilled Chicken with Avocado Salsa.

In addition to these recipes, you'll find handy lists of foods for stocking your gluten-free pantry, plenty of vegetarian and dairy-free options, and powerful resources and advice for living the good life without the gluten.

Vanessa Maltin inherited the DNA for Celiac Disease (CD) from her Mom. Then her best friend was diagnosed with Celiac after nearly losing her life. CD is much more than a never-ending digestive upset. However, once you have the diagnosis life is much simpler. There are no drugs - you just change your eating habits to eat gluten-free food and hopefully, healthier food.

Vanessa was inspired to develop a variety of interesting, tasty meals and treats that everyone will enjoy and in the process became a skilled gluten-free chef.

This cookbook is her second and goes beyond the basic gluten-free kitchen to incorporate recipes from Italian, Asian, and Mexican cuisine. The last section is devoted to gluten-free desserts.

There are no `food porn' pictures but a reading of the ingredients can make you drool. Please be aware that nearly all the Italian recipes and many of the Mexican recipes use dairy products and that is very good if you are so fortunate as to have that on your `yes' list. Many of the desserts also use dairy products. If you really love Asian food then that section may be worth the price of the book. Most Asian food is naturally vegan which eliminates the all-too-common allergy triggers of eggs and dairy.

If your focus is only on the gluten then these recipes are a cut above ordinary gluten-free. However, if you have multiple food sensitivities and/or allergies then you most likely need a different cookbook.

As a recent graduate from culinary school, it's obvious from reading through these recipes that they were written by a classically trained professional chef. Vanessa's creativity and ability to put a unique spin on flavors from across the world beautifully exemplifies her true understanding of varied cooking techniques. Gluten-free or not, these recipes are solid house-hold staples that will always keep your meals delicious and interesting!

This is by far the best gluten-free cookbook I've ever seen. This book makes you realize that there are no boundaries with gluten-free cooking. Asian, Mexican and Italian food has never tasted so good! I've tried several of these recipes, and would never have realized they don't contain gluten.

All the recipes are amazing, but some of my favorites include the Vietnamese spring rolls, Grilled Salmon and Green Curry Risotto, Fried Eggplant with Garlic-Ginger Sauce and Jasmine Rice, the pizza crust, calzones, any of the risottos, Mango Avocado Ceviche, Watermelon and Halloumi Cheese Salad, Enchiladas, Empanadas, Mango Quesadillas, Tequila Shrimp, Red Snapper with Peach Salsa and Quinoa, and any of the desserts!

The recipes are for all skill levels. Some are geared more toward beginners while there are still plenty for the seasoned home cook. But all the recipes are straight forward and simple to follow.

Vanessa's blurbs about each recipe add a personal, fun twist to this book. There's also a great informative section detailing Celiac disease and the basics to gluten-free cooking.

A+++++++!!!!

This cookbook is hands down my favorite and I pretty much own/have cooked from most of the gluten free cookbooks on the market. Every recipe that I have tried has gotten rave reviews from my family. This cookbook needs to be on everyones shelf...not just people that have to cook and eat gluten free.

I was recently diagnosed gluten-free and immediately purchased four cookbooks. This is, by far, my favorite of the four. The dishes are simple, but elegant, and they taste delicious. The portabello risotto with goat cheese cream has become a staple in my house. I highly recommend this cookbook to gluten-free and gluten eaters alike. It would make an excellent gift for any family members who have recently been diagnosed or family members of the recenlty diagnosed.

Not a follower of a gluten-free diet myself, I got this book in hopes that it would help me cook for gluten-free friends. I was surprised, not only by how easy the recipes were, but how great everything tasted! With the help of this book, I have been able to make incredibly enjoyable Mexican, Asian and Italian meals that everyone - both those who were gluten-free and those who were not - thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend it.

It's nice to have a recipe book that is totally gluten free, and features spicy flavorful food. Many of the recipes involve breading, frying or sauces that are normally difficult to make gluten free without guidance. She does not shy away from spices, but uses common ingredients and straight forward instructions.

I couldn't even tell the difference! You wouldn't know these are gluten free dishes from the taste.
