"Aran’s book, filled with beauty and an abundance of staples, breads, and pastries, is the baker’s companion for those who long for artisanal, gluten-free delights." Laurel Gallucci, author of Sweet Laurel and Sweet Laurel Savory
"These recipes manage to pull off the rare and difficult feat of being simultaneously beautiful, delicious, and truly approachable for the home baker. That they’re also gluten-free, and in many cases vegan, gives them a touch of the magical, a quality Aran herself possesses." Claire Saffitz, author of Dessert Person
"Aran offers up an array of desserts without gluten that will satisfy any cravings, even if you’re not gluten-free. The bread recipes ensure that beautiful loaves of bread (and even bagels!) are within the reach of all, and cookie-lovers will find something delicious and satisfying."
