On Thursday, The Essential Gluten-Free Baking Guides will officially be available and in the mail to anyone who has pre-ordered them! (If you want in on part of this first shipment be sure to put in this order today or tomorrow!)
This 9 month project was life changing. Iris Higgins and I deconstructed Gluten Free Baking to is core. We spent endless time with 12 different flours. On a daily basis we are asked questions like "Can I replace Almond Flour with Coconut?" "I can't have rice flour, what can I use instead? "I can't have eggs, how do I replace them?". "I don't like to use xanthan gum, how do I replace it?" These guides are dedicated to those questions! It can take years to become a proficient gluten free baker. We decided to spill all of our time earned baking secrets into each and every page. The knowledge you will learn will allow you to look at any gluten free recipe and have a solid understanding in how to convert it to meet your dietary needs, saving you time and money! We wanted to answer the questions that have never been answered before. Each of these goals were accomplished and we could not be more excited to lovingly share all of it with you!
And then of course, there are the recipes! Our testers were a happy bunch! The Cinnamon Roll recipe pictured above brought tears of joy when I taught a class at the Dallas Gluten and Allergen Free Expo. Nilla Wafers, English Muffins, Bread made without all of the most common allergens... there is something in these books for everyone! Want to know more? Read the answers to these FAQ.
In celebration of this big release for the next three days, Iris and I will be giving away daily gift baskets from companies that we love! All of the gift baskets have been donated from the companies themselves, so be sure to send them lots of love for sharing their goodies with us all! And these companies were chosen for one reason: We use their products regularly. You'll notice in our books that when we talk about different ingredients, we also let you know which companies we prefer. We know that when it comes to baking, quality of ingredients is extremely important, and we want you to have only the best when you try our recipes!
