Gluten-Free Goes Gourmet is a beautiful coffee-table book, a practical cookbook and a guide to healthy eating all rolled into one.
Summary of Gluten-Free Goes Gourmet
This book is a unique collection of gluten-free, corn-free, dairy-free, kosher, and low glycemic recipes. As with any good general cookbook, recipes fall in all the major categories, including dips, drinks, salads, soups, meat, poultry, fish, side dishes, bread, desserts, cakes, and cookies. There is even a section of mock dairy recipes.
What Worked for Me
The design of this cookbook is easy to use, the photographs are drool-worthy and the diversity of recipes is delightful. There is a guide to ingredients you’ll need, as well as a list of basic kitchen equipment. There is even some sound nutritional advice. The index at the back makes it easy to find the recipes you want.
What Didn’t Work for Me
The book is almost too beautiful to use. When I first picked it up, I had no idea how practical the insides were going to be. Also, because this is such a lusciously designed hardcover book, it is hard to keep the book open recipes near the front and back.
What I’d Love to See in the Second Edition
I’d love to see a spiral bound version so that I can use it more easily in my kitchen.
If you are trying to go gluten-free and have other dietary restrictions, Gluten-Free Goes Gourmet could be a good starter cookbook for you. There is a nice variety of recipes and enough basic advice to help you start creating recipes of your own. Plus, it is a lovely book to leaf through!
