Like most celiacs, I usually ignore the appetizers on menus and at parties because they are usually not safe. That STOPS here. Take back your love of Mozzarella Sticks and Jalapeno Poppers, Spanakopita and Baklava, Wraps and Pierogi. Every recipe includes instructions for recipe preparation and preservation (b/c what's the point of making a ton of something if you can't quickly whip it up on a busy weeknight?). Nicole's instructions are clear, the photos are gorgeous, the substitutions are sensible, costs/ingredients/tools are available and affordable.
Adding this cookbook to your library will give you confidence and an amazing wealth of useful support!
I received Small Bites yesterday and I want to make every recipe in the book! My gluten eating family has requested coconut shrimp, crab rangoon, shrimp potstickers, and mini mac and cheese cups to be at the top of the list.
This book has information about commercial gluten free flours and about making your own blends. Nicole also provides information regarding equipment, storage, and deep frying before providing the mouth-watering recipes in the book.
Entertaining, grab-and-go meals, even small bite sweets -- Nicole thought of it all! I have all her books and I think this one will be my favorite!
Nicole Hunn hit it it out of the park!
Time to get cooking!
A. recipes that naturally don't contain troublesome ingredients (thanks, but I don't need a special cookbook to discern these recipes), or
B. they simply substitute a similar, easily obtained ingredient (like almond flour) whenever all purpose flour, etc. is called for. Nice try, but this just doesn't cut it for flavor, texture, etc.
This is where I absolutely LOVE the work Nicole has done with recipe development in all of her cookbooks. Some of the recipes may sound a little complex for those un-initiated to the world of GF cooking (yes I'm speaking to you, you lone 1 star reviewer), but she takes the approach of not being satisfied with "good enough". Her goal (at least what I think it is), is to EXACTLY replicate favorites. From the flavor profile, to the texture, to the levity and denseness. You miss NOTHING with her recipes. Her books have become my primary GF resource to cook for my family and others. If GF is good for my family, I should be proud to serve it to others, and I do! I now have quite the following among my 2 daughters school, swim and water polo friends. They ALL want to ride in our car to see what snacks I'm bringing along. Their teachers look forward to my luncheon contributions, and the dishes I bring to family gatherings are well-received. Not because the food is "good for being gluten free", but because the food is just straight-up good! And now, with Small Bites, I have a whole new list of appetizers and goodies to add to my repertoire.
