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 foodsfrom ravioli to tiramisucontain 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.

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.
