5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT, October 21, 2005
This review is from: Gluten-Free Baking: More Than 125 Recipes for Delectable Sweet and Savory Baked Goods, Including Cakes, Pies, Quick Breads, Muffins, Cookies, and Other Delights (Hardcover)
Rebecca Reilly is a Cordon Bleu trained chef. She used to be the owner of two restaurants, a catering business and a cooking school, all in Portland, Maine. She has also received a diploma from Madeleine Kamman's Modern Gourmet Cooking School in Boston. She was also the host the television series New England Kitchen. Upon the discovery that she and her daughters are gluten-intolerant, she became a private caterer and a nutritional consultant.

One of the major reasons why I liek this book so much is that Rebecca Reilly is a trained chef. She understands the basic science behind a recipe, the texture one is looking for, and is able to troubleshoot to find the required results she needs. This, coupled with her and her daughters' gluten intolerance, make her the ideal person to write a cookbook on Gluten-Free Baking.

There are some delicious photos of some of the baked goods that you can produce by following this book. The recipes are easy-to-understand, and Reilly provides sufficient information on the suitable substitutions for wheat flour. She, also, wants you to feel creative and independent once you are armed with the knowledge on how to bake for yourself.

Some of the wonderful recipes you can find in this book are: Blueberry Scones, Boston Cream Pie, Almond Butter Cookies and Black Forest Cake.
