3.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate recipes let it down.., 18 April 2009
This review is from: The Everyday Wheat-free and Gluten-free Cookbook (Paperback)
This book looks very well put together, but unfortunately of the first few recipes I have tried, I have so far found inaccuracies in three of them! The best example was the Potato, Leek and Apple pie (pg 115), which has NO leeks mentioned in the ingredients! The Banana Bread (pg 179) also has something missing out of the ingredients (my guess sugar?), and mentions adding the eggs twice! If you follow the recipe you'd end up with a right curdled mess! My family have also not enjoyed other recipes which I have made, on a taste basis, so I am now reluctant to try any more frankly, which is a shame. A much better book, I found, was 'Lose Wheat, Lose Weight' by Savill & Hamill, althought the emphasis is slightly different but all the recipes have been unqualified successes!

Yes, I agree with the person who said recipes are not accurate. Got in the same pickle with the banana bread. My first try with the book so very disappointing. Looks like a valuable source for easy recipes on the surface. Just hope my next try is an accurate recipe.
