So far, I like that it's not only about the recipes, but they also explain the science behind the whole gluten-free concept. The instructions are also easy to follow with baking tips EVERYWHERE, you can tell the author knows her stuff. I enjoy cooking, so I really appreciate the details, knowing how much it can affect the final result. I think we're gonna try the basic gluten free bread this weekend, and will get more fancy for Thanksgiving. Besides enjoying the bread, I'm looking forward to seeing how my body will benefit from the gluten-free recipes!
While I appreciate the author's need to highlight a growing necessity for the cookbook, I think chapters five, six, and seven should be put in other books oftentimes found in the medical or self-help sections of the bookstore. Celiac disease and other ailments are touched upon in the introduction and I think that is enough. After all, this is a cookbook about baking gluten-free breads, not a medical book.
The recipes are great. I love the author's tips on preparation because I didn't know that these gluten-free flours need to be refrigerated and although I am an avid baker, I was unaware that with gluten-free baking precise measurements are a must. Good to know! I would have stuck my measuring cup into the bag instead of spooning the flour into the cup as the author suggests. Once again, the recipes are great as are the tips and descriptions of what to expect the dough to look like. If I didn't know the dough was supposed to look like a thick pudding I most definitely would throw it out and start over, good thing the author throws that in.
I highly recommend the recipes and tips found in Gluten-Free Bread for beginners and the information found in chapters five through seven is interesting, I just don't think it belongs in a cookbook.
includes tips to substitute properly and measure successfully even a explanation to how your mixtures should look .

"Gluten Free Breads for Beginners" is a great addition to your book collection.
This is a great book if you need to switch over to gluten-free. There are lots of recipes (sweet, savory, flatbreads) but also lots of tips about gluten-free baking in general. The authors also talk up-front about how gluten-free will not be exactly like foods you are used to made with wheat, etc. You have to change your mind-set a little. But they also give lots of tips about how to deal with some of the issues with gluten-free. There are instructions about how to use your oven for the rising stage and how to avoid super tough crusts. They also list what types of ingredients get a result that is closer to regular gluten-containing foods. There are recipes for all the basics: bread, pizza dough, bagels, etc., and also some cool ideas like coconut-yam bread. There is also info about gluten sensitivity, celiac disease, the paleo diet, etc - could be helpful if you need to explain things to someone who isn’t in the know.
