cooking free from gluten can be quite the challenge. finding ways to hold bread, cakes, pastry and cookies together without the presence of gluey wheat can unfortunately result in sand like textures. this books recipes do not rise to the gluten free challenge. its flapjacks crumble and yorkshire puds remain flat as pancakes. it unfortunately results in disappointing time and money spent in the kitchen. making an already difficult task even more so.

I felt compelled to write a review after reading the existing ones. Having both husband, son and mother-in-law suffering from wheat plus lactose allergies I have used this book extensively over this Christmas 2008. I substitute lactose free milk where necessary and use soy creamer in place of cream. The sweet pastry was amazing for mince pies and the best texture and flavour I have ever found. The Chocolate Almond Gateau on page 132 is absolutely divine. My husband was ecstatic at being able to devour a chocolate cake that tasted like a "normal" one. The Chocolate fudge dessert on p. 142 was sublime and fought over by everyone in the family from grandparents to 6 year olds and became the favourite dessert of the holiday - even for those who could eat cream and wheat! My mother-in-law has just ordered a copy for herself as she was so impressed with this book.

A Fantastic book -the basic recipe for pastry is fool-proof - I even make it in a food processor!

HASH(0x9e97e6c0) out of 5 stars Wonderful recipies (IMPORTANT: quantities are in British units) 21 Aug. 2010
By Maulbeere - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I LOVE this book. I haven't found a recipe I didn't like and it's very nice to be able to make some old favorites from my childhood gluten free. The victoria sponge was especially good, probably because I miss being able to buy these in every supermarket :)

I sympathise with the reviewers who couldn't make recipes work. IMPORTANT: THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN BY IRISH AUTHORS USING BRITISH/IRISH MEASURES.

As an expat Brit living in America for the last 12 years, the difference in sizes between American and UK/Irish measures has made MANY a nice recipe utterly bin-able. An English tablespoon is larger than an American tablespoon, for example, so the sweet pastry recipie will not hold together with only 2 American tablespoons of water, but it will if they're British. I actually keep a set of my old UK measures around, but for those without that luxury, here's some info - and it's worth Googling any questions, especially for baking where getting the chemistry right is a delicate balance.

1 pint US = 16.6 fl oz, BUT 1 pint UK is 20floz
To convert US pints to British pints - multiply by 0.83
1 cup is 1/2 a pint in both countries (so same conversion)
To convert US fluid ounces to British fluid ounces - multiply by 1.04 (such a small difference I don't bother unless it's a really large batch)
1 US tablespoon = 15ml, a UK tablespoon is 18ml (stores now sell 15ml tablespoons, but my old 18ml tablespoon works for recipes better. So again multiply the UK tablespoons by 0.83 to get to American)
1 UK teaspoon = 5ml
i.e 3 UK teaspoons to 1 UK tablespoon
British cookbooks usually measure dry ingredients by oz, and 1oz is 28 grams.
American to Brit oz is near enough the same as makes no difference.

Hope that helps.

HASH(0x9e9ab60c) out of 5 stars Worth Buying 14 Aug. 2008
By Claudia Horner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This cookbook is worth it's weight in gold if you like to cook with healthy, fresh, real food and want to make it gluten-free. The recipes are creative, gourmet but not too complicated or fattening, and really delicious. I would recommend this simply for the desserts, especially the sweet pie pastry which is truly excellent. Beautiful photos, too. Many of the gluten-free cookbooks out there include recipes that are bland, or try to recreate uninspired dishes from the 1960s, or try to recreate processed foods that are wretched with gluten let alone without it. This is the first gluten-free cookbook I've seen that reflects the food trends of today: healthy, fresh, local, organic. This gets used over and over again at our house.

HASH(0x9e80de58) out of 5 stars Finally! 18 Feb. 2005
By Lance A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finally, a Gluten-Free Cookbook that is beautiful as well as helpful. These aren't recipes that look good considering that they're gluten-free, these are recipes that just look good. Highly recommended.

Great book, but it's not for someone looking to cut corners. It's filled with gluten free recipes that while involved are pretty wonderful.
