Editorial Reviews

Review

"Millions suffer needlessly by not knowing that their chronic illnesses, digestive problems, headaches, autoimmune diseases, joint pain, weight gain, depression, fatigue, and more are caused by a staple in our diet: a pesky protein called gluten found in wheat, barley, and rye. Leslie Cerier’s new cookbook opens a world of food wonders and delights, making gluten-free eating an inviting celebration of flavors, textures, and colors. The side effect is weight loss, energy, and, for many, relief of serious chronic illnesses. For anyone who wants to celebrate food while getting healthy and living lightly on the planet, this cookbook is your guide."
—Mark Hyman, MD, author of UltraMetabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss



"Gluten-Free Recipes for the Conscious Cook is a fantastic, easy-to-follow cookbook that will open up worlds of healthy eating pleasure."
—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom



"This is an excellent resource for those interested in gluten-free cooking. In fact, friends and family members will enjoy the recipes, as well."
—Annemarie Colbin, PhD, founder and CEO of the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City and author of The Whole-Food Guide to Strong Bones



"If you think being gluten-free means eating a diet of white rice and starches, think again. Leslie Cerier’s innovative recipes show us just how broad, delicious, and healthy this regimen can be. "
—Beth Hillson, founder of Gluten-Free Pantry and food editor for Living Without magazine



"With our health and the health of our planet in mind, Cerier has successfully created exquisite culinary sensations using grains, exotic rices, fruits, and vegetables."
—Tina Turbin, contributing writer for the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, Awareness Magazine, and other publications



"These wonderfully tasty recipes make it so much easier to get the daily requirements of whole grains that are so important to our gluten-free diet. Cerier offers a tantalizing array of main courses, breakfasts, sides, and sweets that are supremely satisfying. Every gluten-free kitchen needs a copy of this book."
—Carol Fenster, president and founder of Savory Palate, Inc., and author of 1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes



"In her inimitable style, Cerier presents a wealth of seasonal recipes for the gluten-free cook that are as flexible as they are healthy and delicious. No one will feel deprived with such luscious dishes as hearty greens and tofu in tahini sauce or banana buckwheat pancakes with pecans. Best of all, these recipes aren’t only for those with dietary restrictions: a wealth of ideas await anyone who loves fresh produce and whole grains in creative combinations."
—Nava Atlas, author of Vegan Express and Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons



"The perfect primer for getting acquainted with a wide range of lesser- known whole grains, whether you’re following a gluten-free diet or not. The general information on how to cook grains to control texture and taste is invaluable, and the many recipes are creative and original."
—Cynthia Harriman, director of food and nutrition strategies for the Whole Grains Council and its parent organization, Oldways

I've long been a fan of Leslie Cerier's easy, earthy style of cooking, full of hearty grains, gentle seasonings, and organic produce. Though I'm not gluten-free, I added this book to my collection for all the above reasons.

The previous review is so unfair-- to give a book a one-star review because it has no photos? It would have been nice, for sure, but some publishers don't have the budget. And because there is a recipe for cooking short-grain brown rice? These instructions preceded a whole chapter on making healthier sushi, hence its inclusion. Also such instructions are good for people who buy grains in bulk and who are just getting familiar with healthier grains.

I've already made several recipes from this book and they are outstanding. Corn Grits with Sautéed Onion, Kale, and Cheddar (I used vegan cheese), Soba with Tempeh and Broccoli in Coconut Sauce, and Cilantro Pesto were all great. There are probably more dishes here for cool-weather cooking, so I'm looking forward to trying things like Spiced Yams with Pecans and Garlicky Baked Beans with Parsnips and Butternut Squash in the fall.

Aside from being good for gluten-free cooking, this book is a great introduction for using a wide array of whole grains we don't usually think of, like millet--it's such a tasty, healthy grain, and I rarely think to use it. Thanks, Leslie, for another great collection of recipes and tips! If you like this you'll also like Going Wild in the Kitchen, one of my favorite veg cookbooks.

For me, this book focuses less on practical gluten-free vegetarian cooking and more on how to use alternative grains. A huge number of the recipes rely on ingredients like teff or millet -- delicious additions, but expensive and not something I can afford to cook with every day.

Recipes also include hard-to-find ingredients like maca powder or Bhutanese red rice. I'm sure Madagascar pink rice is delicious, but I'm also sure none of my local markets carry it.

Other recipes, like the smoothies and sides, are accessible (and tasty!), and I love the short sushi chapter, but I was hoping for more dishes like those. In the end, this isn't going to be a cookbook I reach for often.

Every now and again, I actually sit down and read a cookbook cover-to-cover; I did with this one. "Gluten-free recipes for the conscious cook" is a cookbook that fulfils its promise: it approaches green and gluten-free cooking like a creative sport. Leslie has us travelling boldly into territories of ingredients and recipes, in a land not yet well-travelled by many of us--the land with no gluten. Here we walk the edge of a truly original culinary adventure.

The amazing flexibility in these recipes, along with the full permission to explore, experiment and be playful --is SO refreshing!! And since so many variations and substitutions are provided, we are not stuck if we don't happen to have--or like--everything the recipe calls for. Hallelujah for flexibility!!

Leslie begins by introducing, in some detail, 10 gluten-free staple foods, which provide a foundation for the 100 or so unique recipes to follow. She also teaches us how to cook beans from scratch, make nut and seed milks, and even sushi! Next, she tours us through creatively-designed recipes for all 3 meals. These are laid out in a clear, clean and easy-to-follow manner. I like this presentation a lot.

I have enjoyed making and eating a variety of these recipes. My taste-sensibilities have had the chance to grow and expand. I am delighted to be able to make "normal food", such as pancakes and muffins, that are within the bounds of a gluten-free diet. With confidence increased, I have even begun to improvise for myself.

On behalf of gluten-free eaters everywhere, thank-you, Leslie Cerier, for sharing with us your inspiration and your expertise in making nutritional, tasty and beautiful food-- without gluten!!

My family has gone from eating normally to a nightmare of: one's a vegetarian. one has celiac? (wheat-based allergies), another who thinks they are allergic to gluten'(til some delicious pasta dish shows up), another who hates mostly everything (but sweets), and on and on. How do you cook at family get-togethers?!?! After 40 years, my husband and I want to give up cooking for others, so we can just smoke some ribs, put together a green salad and a potato salad (with eggs - which another in the group hates), and a big tray of stuffed, baked apples.

This book has helped a lot. Not difficult and more enticing than I expected. I have only tried a few recipes, but intend to keep going, because I am now serving 2-3 veggie dishes with broiled or braised chicken/fish at family dinners , and it is working.

So, what can I do but recommend it! If anyone knows any other - not too weird cook books - please let me know - and THANKS.

~Sharon

I bought this book so I could cook for friends who are afflicted with celiac disease. The recipes in general are good, although the basic bread tastes more like cake. If you're suffering from gluten sensitivity, you may want to try these recipes.
