From Library Journal
With four previous books on the topic to her credit, Hagman is the authority on cooking for those with celiac disease and others allergic to wheat. This time she provides more than 200 recipes for sweet baked goods, from Lemon
Spice Cake to Mock Oreos (for Oreo-deprived kids) to Mud Pie. Some of the recipes are appropriate for those with other dietary restrictions as well, and there's also a separate chapter of recipes that require no special ingredients (such as the special
flours, xanthan gum, etc., with which many gluten-free baked goods are made). Sure to be in demand, this is highly recommended. Reilly, host of the PBS series New England Cooking, is a former chef who trained at the esteemed Le Netre Petissier in Paris.
She first started preparing wheat-free recipes for some of her catering clients and continued when her son was found to have many food allergies. Her book includes both savory recipes, such as Spinach and Pepper Quiche, and sweet ones, from Walnut Orange
Biscotti to Tarte Tatin. Reilly writes well, and she offers invaluable information on baking techniques, along with somewhat more sophisticated recipes than Hagman's. Her book, too, is highly recommended for subject collections.
