Reviews for Donna Kleins The Gluten Free Vegetarian Kitchen.
“Donna Klein is a well-known cookbook author but what did she know about being gluten-free? Well, I must say I am truly impressed. The book does a good job of outlining the “Celiac Diet” and places where the perfidious gluten can hide. Ms. Klein makes great use of the alternative flours and gluten free ingredients, highlighting the natural flavors of gluten free food. For a meat-eater like me, it was useful to have all of the recipes categorized by Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Vegan etc. As a diabetic, it was great to see which recipes were labeled as “low-carb” AND have the nutrition facts for each recipe. I had a great time pouring through the cookbook selecting which ones to make first. I decided to have a dinner party with a few friends (Celiac and not) to give the recipes a test run. Everyone loved the food. Meat-eaters, gluten-eaters and the vegetarian-Celiac all gave the recipes rave reviews.”
