Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Anyone suffering from an allergy to wheat will find Hagman's newest book a godsend. The author of three earlier gluten-free cookbooks (e.g., The Gluten-Free Gourmet), she tested and retested recipes to come up with dozens of yeast breads and quick breads, rolls and muffins, crackers, and more for those who would otherwise be deprived of their "daily bread." Most of these recipes can be made either in a bread machine or by hand, and many are suitable for those with other allergies or dietary needs as well. Strongly recommended.

From Booklist

For people with genetically induced celiac disease, finding breads safe to eat presents significant challenges, since the very gluten that holds most breads together is precisely the source of the sufferers' gastrointestinal distress. Hagman, who has already produced one book of general recipes for the celiac affected, turns her full attention to bread. She overcomes the gluten obstacle through use of nonwheat flours, most of which are made from beans of different sorts. To reproduce the "spring" of yeast-leavened wheat flour breads, Hagman recommends the addition of xanthan gum. Each recipe has two sets of directions, one for hand mixing, the other for the easy-to-use bread machine. Along the way, Hagman offers tips for producing breads that will make the celiac feel very little deprived. A useful addition to public library nutrition collections.

I've had this book on my shelf for a while, always putting off baking some gluten-free bread partly because most gluten-free recipes come out disastrously and partly because I take the easy way out and buy a loaf of rice bread at the local health food/WF store.

The other day I was having a rice-bread shortage so I thought I'd try a recipe, "Basic Featherlight Rice Bread," from the cookbook. Good thing I gave it a try. That was the best, most delicious gluten-free bread I have ever tasted. The texture couldn't be more perfect, crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle, qualities that I miss and long for from regular bread. It tastes very delicious. It also doesn't necessarily need to be toasted, as most gluten-free breads require to make them more palatable. The bread was actually very easy to make. The batter is much like cake batter, thus no worries or guess work in the kneading department. I had only filled the loaf pan barely to the quarter mark, and after about an hour the darn thing rose to the top edge of the pan. I was shocked. There was one ingredient that I had to omit, the egg replacer, since I didn't have any at hand and I really do not know what it is anyways. The bread came out perfectly regardless. I also substituted the xanthum gum with guar gum since it is significantly cheaper...

Bette Hagman organizes her recipes according to how much bread you would like to make, from small, medium or large. This was extremely helpful since I didn't want to go too overboard. She includes instructions for bread machines as well. She gives a lot of different suggestions for flour mixes that you can use. I personally prefer the rice/tapioca/potato starch mixture, so I most likely will ignore the other suggestions.

When we were setting up our bakery, we wanted to try to please people with wheat sensitivities. In the end, we realized that we could do wheat or be wheat free, but not do both.

Still, in our research phase we looked at a lot of wheat free bread recipes, and Ms. Hagman's recipes were the only ones that made us think we were eating bread.

If you are unfortunate enough to have a wheat or gluten sensitivity, and if you miss "real" bread, this book is a must!

I was disappointed with this book. Many of her breads call for use of unflavored gelatin which gives the loaves a springy texture which works right out of the oven but makes for a gross, hard consistency once cooled (kind of like cold chicken fat - EW!) I have had much more luck with Rebecca Reilly's recipes. I find them more sophisticated, less 1950's inspired. Also, Living Without Magazine featured a great bread recipe in their November 08 issue. This woman has posted the recipe with step-by-step photos on her blog: [...]

For anyone newly diagnosed with Celiac disease, it doesn't take long to figure out the Bette Hagman is 1st in gluten free cookbooks. Her previous books not only contained recipes, but wonderful information for Celiacs. So I must say I was disappointed to find out that I could not try a large portion of the recipes in this book because they all contain a flour that I am unable to obtain. Bette's latest favourite flour is sorghum flour, and it is produced in the U.S. by JOWAR foods. Neither my local health food store, nor myself via their web page, have been able to get a response on ordering this flour to be shipped to a Canadian address. What recipes I have been able to try have been wonderful, but with the main section of this book based on having sorghum, I would not recommend this book unless you have access to this ingredient.

I have loved Bette Hagman's cookbooks since I first got "More from the Gluten free Gourmet" with her amazing rapid french bread recipe. WHen I found out she was coming out with a book of JUST BREADS I was ecstatic, and then when I began trying these recipes, I was even happier because they are ALL excellent. I've been trying out new recipes from this book ever since I got it, and I have found some surprising hits, like her amazingly flavorful quinoa bread, and the cinnamon breads, and the sourdough breads... I could go on and on, but I am a huge fan of her new four flour blend with bean flour. I think it's a little unfair to criticize her for the low protein featherlight blend, which she uses in some of her recipes- she doesn't advertise herself as a wheat free high protein baker, but a gluten free gourmet. She has changed the lives of those of us with Celiac sprue who have been stuck with processed breads or mediocre mixes all of our lives.. and I am incredibly grateful. I have been very happy working with her recipes using the new nutritious flours such as sorghum and bean flour, and I'm glad she's always experimenting with new flours to give us more nutritious options (even if they are initially difficult to procure). All of the flour she uses are available in the United States, and most should be available in Canada- Kinnikinnick may be a good source for some of the flours, as well as asian or indian markets. Gluten free products have only been getting better over the last ten years- and I think we can credit Bette's creative genius as inspiring many of these positive changes.Read more ›
