The Lagasse Girls’ Big Flavor, Bold Taste–and No Gluten!: 100 Gluten-Free Recipes from EJ’s Fried Chicken to Momma’s Strawberry Shortcake
Emeril Lagasse is not only a great chef; it seems he is also a great father and teacher, as he has two daughters who have written a stellar gluten-free cookbook that will reward those who either choose or are forced to embrace a gluten-free diet. The introduction has great ideas for stocking a gluten-free pantry and an important section on food labeling. Arranged in six sections (Starters, Breakfast, Lunchtime Favorites, Accompaniments, Mains, and For After), one hundred recipes give readers fabulous choices for everything from comfort food to gourmet specialties. One may have to give up gluten, but one doesn’t have to give up cookies or dumplings or pasta or biscuits or mac and cheese. Many recipes are dairy-free as well. In this book, where there is a want there is a way.
Every recipe has a good write-up explaining the dish, what it might accompany well, and information on the time needed. This is followed by a complete ingredients list and step-by-step instructions. Many have mouth-watering color photographs of the finished product. Back matter includes metric conversions, which recipes are quick and easy and which are dairy free, and a good resources section. Don’t miss this one.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
