Publisher Comments:

When Beth Hillson was diagnosed with celiac disease more than thirty years ago, she had nowhere to turn to for recipes or support. She embarked on a lifelong journey to help provide delicious and healthy food to others who cannot have wheat—as many as 1 in 133 Americans, according to recent estimates. In Gluten-Free Makeovers, Hillson makes over some of the most popular recipes—from celeb chef favorites to classic comfort foods, from pot pies to pizza, fig bars to croissants—so wheat-free home cooks can have their cake and eat it too.

With chapters dedicated to the gluten-free kitchen, preparation basics, a resource guide on ingredient sources, and supplemental info on gluten-free living, Gluten-Free Makeovers offers inspiring meals for both seasoned and novice chefs alike.

Review:

"Hillson (The Gluten-Free Pantry Companion) was diagnosed with celiac disease 35 years ago. A classically trained chef whose role models include Julia Child and food writer Craig Claiborne, she brings the standards and techniques of gourmet cooking to the gluten-free kitchen. These recipe makeovers transform favorite, typically gluten-heavy foods (breads, cakes, pies, pasta, etc.) into safe, appealing options for those with celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, and wheat allergy. The key to achieving tastes and textures indistinguishable from the originals, Hillson says, is choosing appropriate flour blends and finding the right balance between wet and dry ingredients, and the amount and type of fat used. She includes a primer on the many gluten-free flours available and a chart to help readers make their own conversions. Baked goods predominate (some standouts are the Plymouth bread with orange and molasses; cinnamon plum cake; and pumpkin whoopie pies), but there are recipes for appetizers, salads (her broccoli cranberry salad is addictive), soups, and entrees (the maple cheddar breakfast casserole, inspired by McDonald's McGriddles, will entice kids and brunch guests), as well. Hillson also provides time-saving tips (e.g., using commercially prepared flour blends and bread machines) and alternatives for those with other food allergies, on dairy- and nut-free diets, and vegans."
