Celiac and GF

3MTA3 Feb 23, 2009 05:09 AM

Am an experienced cook and need names of a couple/few books on Celiac and GF. Everyday diet and shopping concerns, not scientific. Also some forums would help.
Thank you and I appreciate it.

    Keep it simple. The less ingredients, the easier it is to cook GF.
    I can eat anything, but my wife and daughter are Celiacs. Being from Austria, my style of cooking had to change dramatically. But I adapted.

    Attached are some images of Quiche, Marble Loaf cake, Schnitzel and Gnocchi, all GF.

      I don't have the gluten-free book, but I have 4 other very good cookbooks in this series. Might be worth checking out this one: http://www.amazon.com/000-Gluten-Free...

        Bette Hagman has a number of cookbooks in her "Gluten Free Gourmet" series. "The Gluten Free Gourmet Cooks Fast and Healthy" is one I keep going back to over and over again. Her GF noodles are excellent.

          This website is run by a doctor who also likes to cook. It has sections on various eating needs, and I've linked you directly to the page that lists available gluten-free recipes.

              If you key in - celiac - in the search box on this web site, you'll find several prior discussions about various different foods. Here is one that references a couple of other celiac web sites. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/574900

              There are definitely a few nuances with flour substitutions, but nothing that can't be learned. You'll just have to find the one that suits your taste and texture preferences. Shopping used to be quite a pain, but most large grocery stores now have some type of gluten free section. If your's doesn't, try a health food/organic grocery/market (Whole Foods). If that doesn't work, there are many web sites that do mail order.
