An updated, beautifully designed edition of the essential resource for people who cannot tolerate wheat or gluten.
With her four cookbooks, Bette Hagman has brought tasty food Whack into the lives of over one million people who are intolerant of the gluten in wheat, oats, barley, or rye, or who are allergic to wheat. The premier creator of delicious gluten-free fare, Hagman has spent more than twenty years developing recipes using special flours for pizza, pasta, breads, pies, cakes, and cookies. Containing over 200 recipes updated to include new flours, ingredients, and tips, the second edition of The Gluten-free Gourmet makes cooking gluten-free faster and more fulfilling than ever before. The Gluten-free Gourmet is more than just recipes, however. A complete sourcebook on how to live healthily with celiac disease or wheat intolerance, it features important new information on developing a celiac diet, raising a celiac child, avoiding hidden glutens, eating well while traveling or in the hospital, and locating and ordering from suppliers of gluten-free food and flour. This and Hagman’s other books in the Gluten-free Gourmet series are recognized by health newsletters around the world as the best in this special diet category.
The more than 100,000 Americans allergic to wheat are usually deprived of Sourdough Bread, Butterscotch Brownies, and all the other favorite dishes Hagman has created without using gluten. Her recipes use flours other than wheat flour, but they are generally uncomplicated and quick to prepare–suitable even for those noncooks who have been craving their forbidden foods. There are few other cookbooks in this area; recommended for all special collections.
