Let them eat cake, bread and more … reviews of two Gluten-free cook books

The issue of food intolerance is an important one and can effect the whole family. Mealtimes, food shopping and parties can be inconvenient and hardwork. The two books I have reviewed below could be an answer to the prayers of food intolerance sufferers.

What a fabulous cook book. Everyone, whatever diet they follow should be allowed to eat attractive, flavoursome food. Sisters, Jessie and Jilly Lagasse, have had to alter their diets due to health reasons. This book they have written is full of gluten-free recipes for starters, mains, sides and desserts from the likes of Warm Apple and Brie Tartlets to Perfect Blueberry Muffins to Jilly’s Ginger Sesame Pork Stir Fry to Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. The recipes they have devised show that a whole family can share and enjoy a menu without any family member being excluded due to diet restrictions.

I enjoyed reading the introduction about the girls and their history with food intolerance. Food sensitivity is an important issue and this book could be an answer to someone’s prayers.

The book lists essential store cupboard ingredients. The recipes are clear with mouthwatering photographs.

Let us all eat cake is not your usual baking book. It’s a recipe book written by professional pastry chef and cake artist, Catherine Ruehle.. After a dramatic health condition arose, which Catherine explains about in the introduction of the book, she had to take steps to change her diet. Catherine’s goal “was to create cakes and cupcakes that would be every bit as good as the originals … Because we all deserve to have cake.”

The book is informative and lists ingredients needed for your gluten free baking pantry. The recipes are clear and have mouthwatering photographs. It has wonderful recipes from Nana Banana Snack Cake to Triple Lemon Cake to Carrot Cake. Now with this book everyone can get their bake on!

As with all diets please seek the guidance and advice from a Dr and Health professional.

I’d like to thank the publishers of these books for an advance ecopy of the books for review purposes.
