A glossary of gluten-free specialty ingredients This is a gluten-free vegetarian cookbook—with lots of vegan choices—for anyone who is wheat intolerant but longing for the home-cooked goodness of Italian fare.
"Food writer Mallorca (The Wheat-Free Cook) took up gluten-free cooking after being diagnosed with celiac disease. In this flavorful Italian collection, pasta-centered fare is the exception rather than the rule, but the majority of Mallorca's dishes require no special ingredients at all, a godsend for celiac sufferers often sent hunting for esoterica like celiac-free pasta and xanthum gum. They'll also expand their palates and recipe boxes with dishes like Cioppino, ten different risottos (naturally gluten-free), and rustic mains such as Braised Pork in White Wine with Savoy Cabbage, and Roman-Style Lamb Stew with Fennel. Those with a sweet tooth will appreciate desserts like Almond-Ricotta Cake and macaroons, though her Tiramisu, which requires home-made ladyfingers, calls for advance planning and preparation. Suggestions for a naturally gluten-free Italian pantry and celiac resources will further aid cooks on a wheat-free diet." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
A groundbreaking cookbook that puts contemporary and comforting Italian food within easy reach of everyone who wants to avoid wheat or gluten
From the author of the Wheat-Free Cook, selected by Sara Moulton on Good Morning America as one of the top ten cookbooks of 2007, Gluten-Free Italian charts new territory.
Many of Italys best-loved foods—from ravioli to tiramisu—contain wheat flour, so theyve been off limits to the gluten-intolerant. Until now. Jacqueline Mallorca creates gluten-free surprises like fresh pasta, rustic breads, delicious vegetable contorni (side dishes) that double as appetizers, and sensational regional desserts. Mallorcas easy-to-follow recipes make using fresh ingredients an inviting prospect.
Gluten-Free Italian also includes a shopping guide, cooking tips, Italian pantry staples, a glossary of alternative grains and flours, mail-order sources, and celiac resources.
