Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Gluten-Free Baking Classics contains a recipe for chocolate chip cookies that Gourmet magazine claimed were ‘perfect’ and ‘dared anyone to detect that they weren’t made with traditional wheat flour.’ I took the challenge and tried a test recipe on chocolate chip cookie-lovers…only to find that Gourmet was right and I didn’t have enough taste samples to keep up with their enthusiastic appetites.”
—Sue Ade, Morris News Service

“[Roberts’s] kitchen tested recipes make her baked goods lighter, and fluffier than the rest.”
—Donna Gray, Calgary Herald

“We were captivated by these perfect chocolate chip cookies, [with their] crisp yet yielding texture, and we dare anyone to detect they weren’t made with traditional wheat flour…[the] rich but light…cake loses nothing from the absence of white flour.”
Gourmet

“This remarkable cookbook contains mouthwatering recipes, the directions are easy to follow and the hints are a welcome extra bonus.”
— Elaine Monarch, Executive Director, Celiac Disease Foundation

“This wonderful book by Annalise Roberts is very readable, and the recipes taste great!”
—Peter H.R. Green, M.D. and Anne R. Lee, R.D., Celiac Disease Center, Columbia

“An excellent cookbook. This is rare. I've seen some absolutely dreadful gluten-free cookbooks....As far as the dishes, YUM! Not a single flop so far and that's saying a lot.”
—C. Allison, CookingHelpWeb
