Even devoted low-carb dieters have it easy compared to those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, who have no choice in giving up many foods. Ryberg (The Gluten-Free Kitchen) aims to make their sacrifices easier by recreating favorite dishes, from fried chicken to lemon pound cake, with alternative ingredients. For every meal and course, she offers a wide range of crowd-pleasing recipes (mini meat loaves; Caesar salad); those that are normally gluten-heavy get several versions using different flours for different effects. The first chapter discusses stocking the gluten-free kitchen and converting recipes, and helpful notes about preparation accompany many recipes, but her extensive experience doesn't always translate to the page, particularly with baked goods, which are the trickiest to make. Though she provides extra details about baking, there is still not enough guidance about what to expect with these unusual batters and doughs, and the results may not live up to her claims. Fortunately, her constant enthusiasm and encouragement will keep people trying, and the growing gluten-free community will be thrilled to have this massive resource of ideas for making their meals more enjoyable.

“Introducing an innovative approach to special diet cooking. You won’t believe how good gluten free can be!”
I like the way this book reads, however, sadly, the food just really doesn't taste good. Some was edible but I threw away a lot. I do not use this recipe book anymore.Published 1 month ago by Mary Harrison

This must be a good one! Someone snatched it after a class where I discussed how much I liked it!
Guess I will just have to order another!
This book is amazing. The corn based doughnuts are delicious! The banana bread was amazing! The recipes are easy to follow and don't have all the mixing of flours. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Paige B
