Most Helpful Customer Reviews
As a celiac, I find it difficult to find ways to squench my baking loving soul easily and deliciously. This book has marvelous suggestions to make recipes gluten- and dairy-free, with accompanying irreverent and tastebud tempting narrative. She also offers simple explanations of many patisserie terms and techniques. All I can add is "mangez-vous!"
This book provides some delicious recipes, then for each one, it provides alternate instructions so you can make the recipe gluten free or vegan. The author is funny but also very knowledgeable. The photos are beautiful and inspiring. To be honest, I haven't baked any of the recipes yet, so I can't report on how tasty or successful they might be, but at a minimum, this would be a good gift book for any friends you have who like to bake but have dietary restrictions.
