But, and its a big but, not all the recipes are gluten free!
Let me clarify - the lists of ingredients appear to be gluten-free (I haven't read the entire book so can't vouch for this). It is the serving selections which potentially are not. There is a suggestion that a Moroccan Tagine be served with couscous. Another recommends good crusty bread. Yet another, granary bread.
Whilst the advice pages discuss 'safe' bread and grains, the need to use gluten free versions of serving suggestions is not specifically stated in the recipes themselves. Not a problem if you are used to cooking for a coeliac: you get used to making adaptations. But many buying this book are likely to be new to dealing with the condition. Potentially this book will be used by someone cooking for a guest and simply dive into the recipes believing that whichever they serve will be OK. How many new to the condition will recognise that couscous is not some sort of grain but is made from wheat, or will assume that the breads mentioned in the book are gluten free because they are mentioned in the book?
Overall, this book appears to have been put together in a hurry and insufficiently edited/proofread (there are typos too). If you want some ideas, these recipes will taste good. But if avoiding anything with gluten in is important to those who will eat what you make, and you are new to gluten free cooking then proceed with caution or buy another book.
> serve with crusty bread
> serve with cous cous
> serve with granary loaf
> serve with ciabatta
> serve with pitta bread
> serve with rye or german pumpernickel bread
None of these ingredients are naturally gluten free, nor have I ever seen gluten free alternatives to cous cous or rye bread. This only seems to happen in one section, so I actually think that this section comes from another book in the same series and that there has been a mix-up in the manufacture.
Therefore I would not recommend for people trying to find gluten free recipes.
