Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread

We rated this book:


Nicole Hunn’s Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread is a gloriously comprehensive book on baking gluten-free breads. Hunn has broken the book into nine sections. The first three thoroughly cover the basics—types of flour and flour blends, what to expect, and shaping breads. Hunn provides several variations of gluten-free bread blends, which she then uses throughout as the base for her recipes. Then Hunn really starts cooking or, shall we say, baking. The bread recipes she provides will fulfill any gluten-free fanatics who have felt an emptiness in their day without a bagel, bialys, brioche, sourdough soft pretzel, or monkey bread. Hunn provides clear instructions with her recipes and color photographs accompany some for additional clarification.

What makes Hunn’s book unique is that if you’re looking for pizza dough, for example, she gives you a variety of recipes: thick- and thin-crust, whole-grain, and deep-dish. She also provides recipes that utilize the dough, such as a cheese calzones that pairs with a homemade tomato sauce and pizza dough. Looking through Hunn’s book is like strolling into a bakery with all your favorites, whether with wild yeast starter, rolls, and flatbreads. And then baking all the breads you’ve been missing.
