Gluten Free Table by Jilly Lagasse and Jessie Lagasse Swanson

glutenGluten Free Table by Jilly Lagasse and Jessie Lagasse Swanson

I like cookbooks. Just about any sort will give me a few hours of entertainment looking over the recipes, photos and stories. This book intrigued me not because of the Lagasse name but because it addressed a variety of meals ( appetizers to dessert) which may be served to those with a wheat intolerance.

There are some good recipes in there but frankly, most of them could be found in any number of cookbooks. If flour is called for they substituted a gluten free baking mix or rice flour. I did prepare a few things from this book and I liked them. My husband who has a wheat intolerance, not celiac disease, liked them also.

There is a good resource page at the back of the book providing links and contacts for gluten-free products, links for celiac foundations and helpful information for those who aren’t just wheat intolerant but have actual celiac disease. They also mention a few magazines devoted to those with celiac and allergies.

Overall, I am glad I checked this one out of the library. I liked it, I didn’t love it.
