  • THE GLUTEN-FREE GOURMET BAKES BREAD

    A breakthrough bread book by the unchallenged expert in gluten-free and wheat-free cooking.

    In Bette Hagman's three earlier cookbooks, she created recipes for great-tasting food working with gluten-free flours that are safe for celiacs (those who are intolerant to gluten) and for those with wheat allergies. Knowing from her own hard-earned experience that bread is the greatest loss for those who can't eat wheat, oats, rye or barley, she has experimented with exciting new bean-based flours and has devoted an entire book to breads. Here are yeast breads, yeast-free breads, muffins, rolls, buns, breakfast breads and crackers—a vast array of recipes for the oven or the bread machine—for people who cannot buy breads at a bakery or supermarket but must rely on their own kitchens to provide the staff of life.

    Along with dozens of great recipes are: a beginner's guide to understanding and cooking with gluten-free flours; answers to commonly asked questions about baking with these flours; and a source list of where to buy gluten-free baking supplies.
