Quick-Fix Gluten-Free

Quick-Fix Gluten Free

About the Book:
Gluten-free professional chef Robert M. Landolphi proves that a gluten-free lifestyle doesn't have to be bland and boring, labor-intensive, or time consuming inside Quick-Fix Gluten Free. In preparation for his follow-up to Gluten Free Every Day Cookbook, Landolphi queried fans about their biggest gluten-free challenges and created Quick-Fix Gluten Free in response to the dishes.

Divided into nine sections delving into everything from appetizers and breakfast to hearty, internationally inspired dishes, fan favorite comfort foods and decadent sweets and treats, Quick-Fix Gluten Free offers 100 fast and easily prepared recipes for crave-worthy dishes like Cinnamon Dusted French Toast, Kickin' Paella, Gnocchi with Roasted Garlic Butter and Parmesan Cheese, and Aunt Lil's Rich and Creamy Cheesecake. With a focus on fast, fresh and flavorful, these contemporary dishes are simple enough for everyday meals and delicious enough to serve to anyone--whether they are on a gluten-free diet or not.

Whether your choice to live gluten free is driven by the desire to lose weight, comply with a celiac diet, the need to avoid wheat because of mild allergies or the suspected link between gluten and autism, Quick-Fix Gluten Free proves that once-taboo foods like crusty breads, creamy pastas and indulgent cakes are no longer off-limits.

My Comments:
It seems like every day I hear of someone else who is trying a gluten-free diet.  Generally that comment is followed by a long list of things they can no longer eat.  I was curious when I saw this book offered by NetGalley so I grabbed it.  

Honestly, I haven't tried any of the recipes.  Many call for ingredients I don't have  in the house and as no one here is on a gluten-free diet, I have no desire to invest in them.  However, I will say that the titles of the recipes looked good, featuring things like muffins and waffles that are not, in their usual form, part of a gluten-free diet.  

The book lacks pictures of the food so I don't know about the eye appeal of the recipes once completed.  Still, if you are looking for more variety in a gluten-free diet, this book, which will be published August 23 may be of help.
