Thrilling recipes from around the world that prove you can give up the gluten without giving up the flavor

For sufferers of celiac disease, the necessary diet limitations can seem like a culinary curse. With the right information and a great cookbook, you can still eat most of the foods you love while maintaining a healthy, well-balanced diet. In The Gloriously Gluten-Free Cookbook, Vanessa Maltin compiles Italian, Asian, and Mexican recipes that are safe for a gluten-free diet but taste so good you can't tell the difference. With the help of chefs Edgar Steele of Cafe Atlantico, Katie Chin of Thai Kitchen, and Keith Brunell of Maggiano's Little Italy, Maltin proves that celiac sufferers will never have to eat another boring rice cake.

Living gluten-free isn't as tough as you think-corn tortillas are a simple substitute for flour in Latin cooking, gluten-free flours are perfect for great tasting pizzas and calzones, and rice noodles and gluten-free soy sauce make Asian food perfectly safe and delicious.

  • Includes breakdowns of safe and unsafe foods, tips on maintaining a gluten-free kitchen, and firsthand advice from the author on dealing with family, friends, and restaurant workers who just don't get it
  • Features Italian sauces, starters, risottos, pastas, and main dishes; Asian soups, salads, starters, noodles, sushi, and main dishes; and Mexican starters, salsas, staples, and main dishes
  • Also includes delightful gluten-free desserts and a listing of helpful gluten-free resources

With The Gloriously Gluten-Free Cookbook, a diet without gluten won't be an obstacle to your enjoyment of the good life-and the great food that goes with it.

Vanessa's new book shows those of us on the gluten free diet how to enjoy Asian, Mexican, and Italian cooking along with the rest of the world. My family loves the wonderful Italian dishes, especially the risottos, and I am loving learning how to prepare Asian dishes. And being from California, mexican dishes are always a favorite! I was so excited to receive this book and to be able to show family and friends that gluten free cooking is not only good, but main stream as well.

Substance: A good collection of reasonable recipes, not too chi-chi for the supermarket crowd. Most of the recipes don't actually use gluten substitutes, except in the baking section, but capitalize on cuisines that are inherently gluten-free.I just skimmed the narrative material, but it is worth a second look.

I bought this as a birthday gift for my sister-in-law who was recently diagnosed with celiac disease. She loved it! She loves to cook different ethnic foods, and now she can. Can't wait for the invite to dinner at her house.
