Anyone suffering from an allergy to wheat will find Hagman's newest book a godsend. The author of three earlier gluten-free cookbooks (e.g., The Gluten-Free Gourmet), she tested and retested recipes to come up with dozens of yeast
breads and quick breads, rolls and muffins, crackers, and more for those who would otherwise be deprived of their "daily bread." Most of these recipes can be made either in a bread machine or by hand, and many are suitable for those with other allergies

buns, breakfast breads, and crackers-a vast array of recipes for the oven or the bread machine-for people who cannot buy breads at a bakery or supermarket but must rely on their own kitchens to provide the staff of life.
Along with dozens of
great recipes are: a beginner's guide to understanding and cooking with gluten-free flours; answers to commonly asked questions about baking with these flours; and a source list of where to buy gluten-free baking supplies.
