REVIEW: Blue Star Books’ ‘The Celiac Cookbook: Wonderful Wheat-Free Recipes for the Whole Family’

 

Image
The Celiac Cookbook is the must-have manual for anyone newly diagnosed celiac or gluten sensitive/intolerant…This is the book I wish I had when I learned that gluten was the root cause of my gastrointestinal issues over 3 1/2 years ago. Since that time I have read many books and cookbooks about the horrors of wheat, how to bake, cook, live and eat gluten free and none of them come close to giving such an in-depth, almost encyclopedia-like breakdown of celiac disease, gluten, wheat and how to cook and bake gluten free.

With the foreword presented by one of the leading experts in IBS/ food allergies, intolerances, and the digestive ecosystem Dr. Stephen Wagen of the IBS Treatment Center in Seattle (www.HealthierWithoutWheat.com) the cookbook helps you fully understand celiac disease, what it is, how it affects the intestines, and how to treat it through a gluten free diet. This cookbook initially reads like a mini encyclopedia giving a breakdown of all of the gluten free grains and their properties as well as describing how each grain works in baked goods. This is key since all gluten free grains are not created equal and it is important to know and understand how to use these flours in your cooking.

Another facet that makes this cookbook great is that it gives you 5 gluten free flour mix recipes that are needed for the baked goods contained within the book. These blends are listed at the beginning so you can be prepared to bake many of the treats that follow.

All of this information is presented in a user friendly, easy-to-follow way, holding your attention and keeping you engaged. But make no mistake, this is a cookbook and putting the information aside, the book is loaded with recipes for scrumptious cakes, pies, breads, scones, biscuits, muffins and more. There are over 300 recipes for just about every meal you could imagine and since I’m a cook, this is my dream.

The Celiac Cookbook is a wonderful addition to any cook’s collection whether they are gluten free or not. The information on celiac disease alone makes it worth its list price and the plethora of recipes only add to its value.
