Celiac and GF

  • 6

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.

  1. 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.

    1. This site has lots of good info and a question/answer forum (click on link on right side of page).

      Here are my three favorite GF cooking blogs:

      good luck,

      1. 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.

        1. 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.

          1. 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...
