Great book, great recipes and easy to follow
The breakfasts, smoothies and drinks chapter is mostly filled with drink recipes - these would be gluten free anyway and if I had any interest in making these, I would have bought a book on smoothies and juices. Other recipe books use this section for pancakes, breakfast muffins etc - i.e. replacing what someone on a regular diet would be able to eat.
The snacks section is filled with recipes which are quite time consuming and low on calories and carbs - filling snacks are the most difficult thing to find as a coeliac, specifically for snacks on the run. These recipes all assume you are home all day.
The outdoor section does little to recommend carbohydrate accompaniments which is probably what most new coeliacs need guidance on. The rest of the recipes could easily be in any other recipe book.
The baking section - suggests chestnut flour (which is about £7 for 500g) or cornmeal flour which are both quite heavy flours so I would question the quality of the results.
As an experienced gluten free cook, there are also a few things in the book that I just can't believe are right.
The book doesn't recommend specific brands, so for new coeliacs, when it says 'gluten free miso soup mix' or 'gluten free mustard' there is no explanation on what is safe and what isn't. In the case of mustard, it's generally English mustard which isn't ok.
I'm a little bewildered as to why Coeliac UK endorses this book as it is far from a good basics book and is a bit too random as well to be 'just a good recipe book'.
Very easy to read and follow with some nice illustrations.
Im not actually coeliac as I can eat small amounts of gluten and wheat without any problems.. the main factor being small amounts . I had other books which were designed more like a paperback book so it wasn't very easy to follow and it didn't have any pictures.
**Degree of information**
The book contained an introduction with information about coeliac disease. Chances are if you are coeliac there will be no new information . It was informative enough without being too long. If anyone reading this review doesn't know what being coeliac is it is a lifelong autoimmune disease affecting the gut and other parts of the body.
I liked how it had a summary of symptoms of the disease as well as foods without and a list of foods that contain wheat or gluten.
**How easy was it to read**
The book is laid out in easy to read sections
Breakfasts, smoothies and drinks
snacks and quick food
salads,dressings and quick fixes
parties and entertaining
cakes ,pastries ,biscuits and desserts
The book also had summary boxes at the beginning of each recipe with how many it served,prep time and cooking time. I think this is great being able to see at a glance
**How interesting was the book/how useful**
I felt the book contained plenty of recipes . The ones I have tried have been easy to follow and none of them have asked for any weird ingredients. Nothing difficult to make so you wouldn't need to be an expert cook.
The results have also tasted good.
I liked the layout - font size etc is easy to follow whilst making the recipes. There wasn't photos for every recipe but I don't think they need it.
**Would you read again**
