on August 23, 2011
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.
This cookbook is a Gluten-Free recipe guide with foods that actually sound good; something that you might actually want to consume! Which, take it from me, I’ve searched high and low for decent sounding gluten free dishes and this one definitely gets your mouth watering. Only problem that I have is, and it’s a total personal problem, is that these dishes are sometimes very labor intensive and aren’t exactly quick. I have a pretty busy lifestyle and sometimes I just need a recipe where I can throw stuff together, heat it up, and call it done. But considering I’m gluten-free, that’s not always easy for me (read, never). My other problem, personal again, is that I also tend to stay away from dairy and I can’t have eggs, period. So a few of these recipes that I’ve taken note of to make in the near future will take some editing but overall I definitely like the looks of this cookbook, I have made some of these recipes with success, and will definitely keep this on hand to try more of his recipes in the future.
