"As a scientist in the kitchen, it’s always fascinating to follow along with the experiments of other kitchen tinkerers, particularly those working under a completely different set of constraints. Elizabeth Barbone’s writing and recipes for the gluten-free diet are consistently well-researched, comprehensive, sprinkled with fun, relevant, personal anecdotes, and, most importantly, are downright delicious-sounding."
-- J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, Managing Editor of SeriousEats.com and author of The Food Lab, March, 2012

The best thing about the book, though is the recipes. They're just what we're all looking for - dishes that are kid- and non-foodie-husband -friendly, easy-to-find ingredients, clear instructions, great results. Whole sections on pasta, pizzas, burgers & sandwiches, and casseroles, as well as the usual soups, salads, main dishes, sides, and desserts. There's a lot of comfort food here - but also fun recipes for the more adventurous (e.g., Italian wedding soup, smoked mozzarella and roasted vegetable pasta, saltimbocca, rustic pies). The bread recipes have instructions with pictures for anyone who hasn't yet learned that baking really good gluten-free bread is really, really easy (much easier than wheat-based bread - no kneading involved), and there's a recipe for multi-grain bread you won't find in her previous cookbook. Not as many bread recipes, of course, and not as many dessert recipes (cupcakes, 4 cookies, brownies, rustic pies, cheesecake cups, whoopie pies (!), and a couple of fruit cobblers, none found in the same form in her Easy Gluten-Free Baking. They're enough to get anyone started, while adding new recipes for anyone who has her previous book.
Barbone's Easy Gluten-Free Baking book was what I immediately sent a nephew when I heard he'd been put on a gluten-free diet (along with Chebe Bread Pizza Crust Mix, Gluten Free, 7.5-Ounce Bags (Pack of 8) and a guide to gluten-free beer, of course). Now I guess I'll have to send him a copy of this book too. I'm certainly not going to send him my copy - I'm keeping it and expect to be using it frequently.
There is a wide range of recipes in this book and some for baking and desserts too.
I love how much thought and care goes into her recipes and the great taste they produce in the final product.
The book is spiral bound so will sit beautiful and flat when you are trying to use it.
If you have not bought her first book then I suggest getting it too. Non GF people cannot tell the difference which makes my life so much easier especially when making food for others.
