17.3 Food Allergy Books: Wheat/Gluten/Grain Free



The Gluten-Free Gourmet: Living Well without Wheat
by Bette Hagman
H. Holt & Co.
ISBN 0-8050-1835-2
$12.95 paperback.

The book is fairly thorough. It relies on a mix of flours
that includes potato starch flour, tapioca flour and xanthan gum.
These are not always easy to find. I have mail order addresses, but the
book lists a large number of them in the back. The recipes I have tried
haven't floored me, but they certainly are more than adequate. I need
to learn more about how these different flours work in baking before I
make a final judgement.
The recipes are more "gourmet" than the previous books. Most aren't
_so_ complicated, but the emphasis is on recipes that you would
feel comfortable serving to company. It certainly is more complicated
than my everyday fare.
(A sample recipe is in
Allergy Recipes
file.)

Wheatless Cooking
Lynette Coffey
Ten Speed Press
Berkley, CA 94707
ISBN 0-89815-156-2
Paperback 10.95

One net person states: I was given a copy of Lynette Coffey's
"Wheatless Cooking" book as a gift several years ago and I would NOT
recommend it. I have never used another cookbook where so many of
the recipes simply do not work as stated. I have altered some
recipes so they at least function (by tripling liquids and halving
cooking time, etc.) but most of my results with the recipes "as
printed" have been somewhat disappointing. Very few recipes are
actually gluten-free (the author's son has a wheat allergy, not
celiac disease). Other books on the list, such as Bette Hagman's
books, are a much better value!
