Against the Grain

Against the Grain by Nancy Cain is a great cookbook on gluten-free baking and cooking.  My sister has celiac’s disease and cannot eat gluten.  When she first discovered her disease, there were few gluten-free items available at stores, restaurants, or in cookbooks.  I have noticed that the number of gluten-free items is slowly increasing.

Against the Grain contains lovely photographs, good recipes, and very nice instructions.  There is some good information on the importance of measuring.  When making gluten free recipes, it is important to measure the ingredients by weight (using a scale).  There is also a section on the best type of pans to use, items to have in your pantry for gluten-free cooking, and techniques for cooking/baking gluten-free. 

The recipes included in this book are deep dish apple pie, old-fashioned oatmeal cookies, pancakes, muffins, breads, pizza dough, and onion rings.  There is even a recipe for c-biscuit pet treats for dogs and horses.  The author included has included nice tips with each recipe.  The book is written in a style that is easy to read and understand.  I give Against the Grain 5 out of 5 stars.    

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Blogging for Books (and Penguin Books) in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you for checking out my review!  Have a great evening and Happy Reading!
