To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased this book after I researched quite a few for my daughter who has just been diagnosed as having coeliac disease. A lot of Gluten Free products are quite unhealthy so this seemed a good option for someone who was embarking on a coeliac regime for the very first time. I had popped into my local WHS first and browsed through the coeliac books and thought that this one looked easy to use, using healthy but not too many fancy recipes. When first diagnosed I felt a simple cookbook was required that you would want to try out the recipes so ordered it from Amazon. Great, fast service from Amazon as I have come to expect. My daughter has tried out some of the recipes with success and must admit that I will probably try a few myself. It is very hard to know how to tackle everyday cooking tasks when first diagnosed but this book seems an excellent find when starting off on a gluten free diet. Any other recommendations most welcome from other readers.
This book not only provides excellent recipes, but also sound information about Coeliac disease and intolerances. Its really useful for anyone unfortunate enough to be coeliac, and also provides super recipes for anyone who is avoiding wheat. The recipes I and my friend have tried work well and are delicious! Sundried tomato cornbread, and sticky toffee pudding are two of our favourites. There are plenty of savoury recipes and a basic recipes section which covers sauces and pastry, among other goodies.
Didn't think the recipes were particularly healthy. Recipes for heavy puddings, burgers, biscuits and the like but not much for someone who also wants to lose some weight. I've struggled to find a book that has decent recipes for gluten free person on a diet! Sadly I thought this might be it but it wasn't and I rarely use it.
