Against the Grain by Nancy Cain



Against the Grain
Extraordinary Gluten Free Recipes Made from Real, All Natural Ingredients
by Nancy Cain

About this Cookbook:

Revolutionary all-natural recipes for gluten-free cooking--from the owner of Against the Grain Gourmet.

Nancy Cain came to gluten-free cooking simply enough: Her teenage son was diagnosed with celiac disease. After trying ready-made baking mixes and finding the results rubbery and tasteless, she pioneered gluten-free foods made entirely from natural ingredients--no xanthan or guar gums or other mystery chemical additives allowed. That led her to adapt many of her family's favorite recipes, including their beloved pizzas, pastas, and more, to this real food technique. In Against the Grain, Nancy finally shares 200 groundbreaking recipes for achieving airy, crisp breads, delicious baked goods, and gluten-free main dishes.

     For any of these cookies, cakes, pies, sandwiches, and casseroles, you use only natural ingredients such as buckwheat flour, brown rice flour, and ripe fruits and vegetables. Whether you're making Potato Rosemary Bread, iced Red Velvet Cupcakes, Lemon-Thyme-Summer Squash Ravioli, or Rainbow Chard and Kalamata Olive Pizza, you'll be able to use ingredients already in your pantry or easily found at your local supermarket.

     With ample information for gluten-free beginners and 100 colorful photographs, this book is a game changer for gluten-free households everywhere. 


My Thoughts on This Book:

 Are you looking to go gluten free? Looking for yummy gluten free recipes to change up your healthy eating lifestyle? When I saw this cookbook, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I don't need gluten free recipes for our family but I do want to lighten up our diets of wheat. This cookbook gives a fresh start to letting go of wheat food and to welcome new flours for baking and cooking. These recipes do not skimp on flavor or taste. 

Homemade breads, crusts, and desserts are lined within the pages of this cookbook. Each one more delicious than the next. I love making my own bread and now I can't wait to try each and everyone of them in this book. It also gives you the recipe to do a sourdough starter.. Yum! 

The first part of the cookbook is learning about gluten free baking. From learning some basic tools, to stocking your kitchen cupboards with all the necessary ingredients.

The cookbook then is broken down by food categories:
Traditional Breads and Flatbreads
Quick Breads, Breakfast Food, and Muffins
Savories
Cookies and Bars
Cakes
Pies and Desserts
Recipes Using Premade Breads.

Beautifully illustrated, easy to read recipes and completely all natural ingredients. This cookbook is a keeper in my kitchen..

I received a review copy for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was given.
