I learned a lot about the science behind gluten free baking and ingredients used in gluten free cooking, but I don't really like any of the recipes. I sometimes look at them and then make up my own variation of what she has. I tend to use whole foods, and I see a lot of canned goods, and substitutes in her recipes, which is not the way I like to cook. Also, I HATE using bean flours in baked sweets. It tastes AWFUL. I'm sorry, but it's just not necessary. I use Isa Chandra Moskowitz's all purpose ...more

Great information! I loved the details about using different flours for different things. She had a lot of good travel insight as well. I wish she had spent more time on cross-contamination issues, but there's only so much you can cover in a recipe book, and celiac disease has so many facets. What I really enjoyed was the fact that this focused directly on people with celiac, and didn't make a lot of other crazy substitutions for people with other allergies (except lactose sensitivity, which goe ...more

Not too sure I would call this gourmet cooking. It has many many baking recipes, which is what attracts me to the book. Her "other recipes" are really very pedestrian. How is chicken noodle casserole - which calls for water chestnuts and cream cheese - in any way something that sounds good let alone "gourmet"? At any rate I'm looking forward to trying out some of the cookie and quick bread recipes.

Solid cookbook for gluten free adaptations of typical American dishes. Nothing here has wowed me, but none have let me down, either. Great if I'm in a hurry because the recipes are generally simple, straight-forward and have a reasonable ingredient list. No need here to rush out to the store for exotic ingredients like coconut flour or rice groats when you are just trying to get dinner on the table.

I loved this cookbook. It is fully of yummy recipes that I can't wait to try. I've already tried the Pear Torte for Christmas Eve dessert which was phenomenal. Even my skeptical non-gluten free family members loved it and are already asking for more. I can't recommend a better cookbook for those faced with the challenges of a gluten free diet.

As it is a library loaner I've photocopied some recipes for now but I fully intend on buying a copy ASAP.
Good explanations of different flour uses. Simple recipes based on two flour mixes. I like that she tries to keep things simple - I am looking for a middle ground between buying expensive GF flour mix and using 6 different flours in every recipe. I cannot eat gluten, corn, sorghum or beans but can use most recipes from this book.

Recommends it for: anyone needing wheat-free baked goods
Recommended to Hilary by: my pediatric dietician
Great recipes, although I often tweak them. I didn't like the flavor of the four bean flour she raves so much about. It tastes like beans! But I use the rice/tapioca/potato mixture all the time. The tapioca bread is the best.

The Bette Hagman books are the best of several gluten free books I've tried. Everything has turned out great and the whole family will eat the foods...sometimes even better than wheat based! Love her flour mixes that I can make in bulk.
