Overview


From the author of the Wheat-Free Cook, selected by Sara Moulton on Good Morning America as one of the top ten cookbooks of 2007, Gluten-Free Italian charts new territory.

Many of Italy's best-loved foods—from ravioli to tiramisu—contain wheat flour, so they've been off limits to the gluten-intolerant. Until now. Jacqueline Mallorca creates gluten-free surprises like fresh pasta, rustic breads, delicious vegetable contorni (side dishes) that double as appetizers, and sensational regional desserts. Mallorca's easy-to-follow recipes make using fresh ingredients an inviting prospect.

Gluten-Free Italian also includes a shopping guide, cooking tips, Italian pantry staples, a glossary of alternative grains and flours, mail-order sources, and celiac resources.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Publishers Weekly, 11/30/09
“In this flavorful Italian collection, pasta-centered fare is the exception rather than the rule, but the majority of Mallorca’s dishes require no special ingredients at all, a godsend for celiac sufferers often sent hunting for esoterica.”

Taste for Life, February 2010
Gluten-Free Italian offers satisfying dishes—even pizzas and pastas—that the whole family will love.”

Portland Oregonian, 2/23/2010
“I can’t wait to cook my way through the book!”

Publishers Weekly
Food writer Mallorca (The Wheat-Free Cook) took up gluten-free cooking after being diagnosed with celiac disease. In this flavorful Italian collection, pasta-centered fare is the exception rather than the rule, but the majority of Mallorca's dishes require no special ingredients at all, a godsend for celiac sufferers often sent hunting for esoterica like celiac-free pasta and xanthum gum. They'll also expand their palates and recipe boxes with dishes like Cioppino, ten different risottos (naturally gluten-free), and rustic mains such as Braised Pork in White Wine with Savoy Cabbage, and Roman-Style Lamb Stew with Fennel. Those with a sweet tooth will appreciate desserts like Almond-Ricotta Cake and macaroons, though her Tiramisu, which requires home-made ladyfingers, calls for advance planning and preparation. Suggestions for a naturally gluten-free Italian pantry and celiac resources will further aid cooks on a wheat-free diet.

I am Italian and have a wheat allergy so this book is giving me all the good things I have been missing. Recipes are very similar to my family's cooking so I really get to enjoy them.
