With more and more people all over the World going gluten-free either because of the allergies, dietary requirements or simply to eat more healthy, it is a very good read to have at home to impress your gluten-free friends.

Except for basic breads, rolls and baguettes it has plenty other savoury and sweet recipes, including the doughnuts, cinnamon buns, pretzels, pizzas just to mention few. Many of them illustrated with B&W step by step photographs, which personally I find of big help when preparing new to me dishes.

The recipe ingredients are clearly displayed in tables with Volume (US cups), Weight (US) and Weight (Metric) so even if you don’t know one you will always be able to figure it out from the other measurements. UK readers, please note that the cups are US not UK, they are a bit different – UK cup is 250 ml when US cup is only 240 ml.

Your thoughts…

  1. Yikes, I thought a cup was 250ml! Lovely looking gluten free breads. I remember the old days when you could only buy the sour tasting rye bread and inedible gluten free breads that could bounce.

  2. Yes, it is Michelle it is, correcting now to 250 ml, I don’t know what I was thinking about, lol :) My only excuse is that I slept 4 hours last night…

  3. Their first book was all over the internet when I’d not long started blogging. The GB edition didn’t have any photos so I never really got into it. Please to see this one has pictures!

  4. Looks like a great book to have on hand. Handy to have the different measures too.

  5. Gluten free baking has come such a long way! This sounds like a really good book and one that will be useful, whatever measurement language one speaks. :-)

  6. Yes, it is, indeed. And gluten-free bread tastes surprisingly good as well.

  7. I relish, result in I found exactly what I was looking for.
    You’ve ended my four day lengthy hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great
    day. Bye
