This book has a lot of good information in addition to good looking recipes. I only tried one and it was an almost exact rip off from Bob's Red Mill tapioca flour bag, except bob's uses the bread machine. I'm going to try it instead. I only give this book a three because this seems to be stuff you can get for free on the internet and I don't see myself using any other of the recipes any time soon.
Recommends it for: Those with Celiac Disease or a wheat allergy
This book is an excellent baking cookbook for anyone with a wheat allergy or celiac disease. The author gives lots of information about all the different gluten-free grains, as well as information on the flours. I found it fascinating and very helpful. There are a ton of recipes in here with everything from Muffins to Apple Crisp. Very well worth the investment!
For someone who loves to bake, learning that they have Celiac disease can be very frustrating. Baking without gluten is completely different. This is a fantastic book, and a great way to make the transition to eating gluten free less difficult.
