Nancy Cain came to gluten-free cooking simply enough: Her teenage son was diagnosed with celiac disease. After trying ready-made baking mixes and finding the results rubbery and tasteless, she pioneered gluten-free foods made entirely from natural ingredients--no xanthan or guar gums or other mystery chemical additives allowed. That led her to adapt many of her family's favorite recipes, including their beloved pizzas, pastas, and more, to this real food technique. In Against the Grain, Nancy finally shares 200 groundbreaking recipes for achieving airy, crisp breads, delicious baked goods, and gluten-free main dishes.
For any of these cookies, cakes, pies, sandwiches, and casseroles, you use only natural ingredients such as buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, and ripe fruits and vegetables. Whether you're making Potato Rosemary Bread, iced Red Velvet Cupcakes, Lemon-Thyme-Summer Squash Ravioli, or Rainbow Chard and Kalamata Olive Pizza, you'll be able to use ingredients already in your pantry or easily found at your local supermarket.
With ample information for gluten-free beginners and 100 colorful photographs, this book is a game changer for gluten-free households everywhere.
This book review is LONG past due. I mean REALLY long past.
I realized the other day that this dear cookbook got stuck under a pile of my other cookbooks during one of my cleaning days and I UTTERLY TOTALLY forgot about it.
But, regardless of how long it took me to write up this review, this cookbooks is a great addition for you Gluten Free cooking needs!
I love Nancy Cain's gluten free frozen pizzas. Our local Publix carries them and they are my go to for gluten free frozen pizzas. Her crust is beyond amazing.
I attempted to make the same crust out of the cook book and it did not go well,
1. I am not a baker
2. I think I had the wrong type of flour
3. I was in a rush
BUT, that doesn't mean its not a good recipe!One day in the near future, I will make it with success and I will instagram my success to show y'all!
If you get the chance, you should pick this cookbook up and make some of the delicious food Nancy Cain has put her gluten free spin on!
