Cookbook Review – 1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes

Updated on November 15, 2008

If you think following a gluten-free diet means you have to give up great tasting food, you're in for a pleasant surprise when you check out the recipes in 1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes by Carol Fenster, Ph.D. When you add 1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes to your cookbook collection, you'll never be short of delicious recipes that each member of your family is sure to love, whether or not they have a gluten intolerance.

Many people have medical conditions that require them to eliminate gluten from their diets. Even though gluten intolerance was once believed to be a rare condition, this is not the case. Celiac disease, a condition that can be treated only by carefully following a gluten-free diet, affects more than three million Americans. Since gluten is present in many wheat-based foods, following a gluten-free diet poses a serious challenge for many people.

That challenge is one that Carol Fenster faced herself, and that's how she got started developing delicious gluten-free recipes. Upon being told by her physician that she needed to eliminate wheat from her diet, Fenster quickly began altering her favorite recipes to exclude gluten. She has since written numerous gluten-free cookbooks and is widely recognized as an expert on the subject of cooking without gluten.

While gluten-free products were once very difficult to find, an increasing number of food manufacturers are making and marketing foods suitable for those who cannot consume gluten. However, the fact remains that the best way to keep gluten out of your diet is to prepare your meals at home, using recipes like the ones you'll find in 1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes.

1,000 Gluten-Free Recipes starts out with facts about gluten and why a gluten free diet is necessary for many people. By reading this section, you'll learn what gluten is, the health problems that are linked to gluten, and why it's important for many people to avoid eating foods that contain this protein. You'll also learn what to look for on food labels to identify the presence of gluten. You'll also find information about cooking with gluten-free ingredients and instructions for converting traditional recipes so they are free from gluten.
