The book looks like it will/would be amazing - but one itty bitty teeny tiny issue that is making me want to tear out my hair - while there are pages devoted to various gluten free flours, gluten free grains, how to and why for's, when you get to the bulk of the recipes, one item over and over is called for.

"All Purpose Gluten Free Flour".

Um.

Say again? A flour mix for bread is given, a flour mix for pasta. And again, the handy dandy list of various other types of GF flours. But not ONCE (not even in the index) is this magical substance discussed. Not once. And there are, quite literally DOZENS of things on the market all claiming to be all-purpose subs (along with a few hundred recipes) - all with different properties. All with different ingredients. And really? Not one single Hail Mary this sucker works for : bread, pasta, pie dough, cookies, and to dredge your chicken fingers in. Hence... the difficulty in GF cooking. If you are NOT going to give a GF All purpose mix recipe - then, at the very very least, you need to discuss all the options on the market, and what to look for/how to buy. Because if all a cook has is a "Good luck, God speed, hope you figure it out before it breaks the yearly budget (All purpose GF mixes on the market can range from $2 a pound to $16. Which is a big ol' reason a lot of us try to cook from scratch!) buying a cookbook seems a bit.... pointless. Don't get me wrong, I'm a dratted stubborn gal, and I'm not giving up on this book. But COME ON. If you are going to fall back onto a store bought staple - give specifics. Explain. EDUCATE.

This is a GREAT cookbook! It also offers a lot of insight into the world of gluten free. We have given it as gifts to a few people since we tried it ourselves. It is full of yummy recipes. We don't miss the gluten at all.

I personally disagree with people who have downgraded this book because it doesn't give recipes for making your own gluten-free mix and then use them for every recipe. However, the book does have some recipes for gluten free blends for some of the recipes, such as bread, self-rising, and pasta.

--I only use organic products where possible, and it's almost impossible to find organic versions of many of the gluten-free ingredients that are used in the other books. However, I recently found an organic all-purpose mix, so this book is wonderful.

--So far many of the gluten-free breads and cookies I've made were sad; I used recipes from the internet and on some of the gluten-free products. I'd rather use something that works, especially while learning. Commercial mixes aren't ideal, but under the circumstances they fit the bill.

--In terms of saving money, while other books have lovely recipes, they often have so many expensive ingredients that it doesn't matter if you're making your own mix. Granted with a very large family, you might be able to use all the products before they go stale, but otherwise, you'd have lots of ingredients that were less than prime.

--Where possible, I check books out of the library to evaluate them before buying them (after some unhappy experiences). This one is definitely on my wish list to give my daughter for xmas--many good basic recipes for bread, pies, and main meals.

I bought this book when I first started on a gluten free diet – due to being gluten intolerant. I found it useful, and informative as well. It’s a nice book, and although not all of the recipes have photos, there is such a wide spread of recipes I found I wasn’t disappointed. It has plenty of mains and savouries as well as a few good sweets. I liked their lamb and beans in wine type dish, although I adjusted it to include more vegetables and more liquids, and I have made a few of their cupcakes, some of their biscuits, and have not had to use the xantham gum recommended in the recipes. The only thing I found was that when I tried to make the Viennese Biscuits I couldn’t pipe the dough. But so far I haven’t had any other real troubles with the recipes. In fact I recommend keeping the xantham gum out of the muffins as it can make their mixes difficult to beat.

Pros: Very informative, the hardcover version is very attractive, good spread of gluten-free recipes, doesn’t ask for hard to find gluten-free flours, etc.

Cons: Not every recipe has photos.

I quite like this book. It has a wide selection of recipes, including a whole section with pies and tarts and things, which is pretty novel for me. So I recommend this book for people who want both gluten intolerance and coeliac disease information as well as recipes.
