3.0 out of 5 stars Depends how much you bake, 6 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Honeybuns Gluten-free Baking (Hardcover)
I'm an occasional GF baker for my mother and i bought this book to expand on the other GF recipes i have. the book itself seems well written, though i would personally like an illustration for each recipe otherwise i just can't picture what it's meant to look like.
Before you buy this book, how much baking are you going to be doing?
If you're going to be doing a lot and very frequently then it will be a super addition to your kitchen as you will be buying a lot of ingredients that are not cheap nor easy to find (depending on where you live in the UK). so if you will be baking lots then you will use the ingredients up.
If like me you are more of an infrequent baker maybe once or twice a month then I would think twice.
While there are explanations about what you can substitute and how, for me, i just want to pick up a book and bake.
I also dont want a cupboard full of ingredients that I will only ever use in recipes from this book - sourghum flour, ground flax seed and many more. I just dont see these sorts of ingredients in other GF baking books, so i dont think i will be baking anything from this book as the ingredients will hardly get used, which is an expensive waste.
If you'll be baking loads then i'm sure you will love this book as there is a recipe for every taste and preference!
Good book but just not practical for me.
If you want a practical book for occasional GF baking try The Gluten Free Baker by Hannah Miles (standard GF flour used for all recipes!)

Great to get other peoples feed back on the books. It has helped me enormously to select the one that I have and a lot of it has been down to the ingredients that have to be purchased. I live in France, unfortunately and they do not cater properly for people with allergies and sensitivities. Consequently you cannot buy most of the ingredients I have to source most things from other countries. Also I notice that some of the recipes are too fancy I just want ordinary straight forward recipes - I am not a chef and do not want to be one!
