4.0 out of 5 stars Great gluten free recipe book 20 Nov 2012
I found the blog before I bought this book and always found it a great resource for recipes for my girlfriend who has coeliac deasse. The only dissapointment was there was only a few pages in full colour which appear in the centre. I'm assuming this was a costing decision as the blog has some great photography alongside each recipe.

Don't let what I've just said to sway your decision because there are some amazing things to be made in this book

Well I bought this book with scepticism. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. Lovely, non fussy recipes and all of them gluten free.
I have already ordered the 2nd book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best gluten free recipe book on my shelf 30 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love this book! Almost all the recipes so far have been a great success (the exception being flour tortillas which
were too a bit too fiddly). I think my favorite recipe so far is the apple pie which is amazing. Gluten free on a shoestring contains both savoury and sweet recipes, a selection of breads and a useful section of tips for making life in the kitchen easier. It is an american cookbook, so uses volume measurements. Thankfully measuring cups are widely available and the difference between us and uk cups is small enough that it doesn't make much difference. I've never seen any of the recommended brands for sale but I've had great success with Doves farm mixes.
