Yummy Supper: 100 Fresh, Luscious & Honest Recipes from a Gluten-free Omnivore
It’s easy to become captivated by Erin Scott’s Yummy Supper: 100 Fresh, Luscious and Honest Recipes from a Gluten-Free Omnivore. Beautiful, succulent photos accompany each recipe. Scott’s dishes are infused with Northern California sensibilities—think Alice Water’s Edible Schoolyard—paired with international influences. When she describes her subtly sweet hazelnut meringue as being influenced by an Italian gelato shop in Bali, you’ll want to try them. Her chai recipe is one of the best I’ve made, which I had a hard time not making the first week with this book. (The family spent a year living abroad and their adventures with food are sprinkled throughout.)
Although Scott suffers from celiac disease and her recipes are gluten free and the book provides dairy free options. There are more than enough recipes to dive into and Scott’s introduction to gluten-free eating is a helpful primer. This cookbook is perfect for a foodie unable to eat gluten, but the recipes are not complex. In fact, Scott explains how her gluten-intolerant kids not only help in growing their own food, but they also are not afraid to prepare her recipes, such as the fish tacos with pomegranate salsa. Scott celebrates simply good food.
