Occasionally, I receive products in the mail that the sender wants me to write about on my blog. If the product is something I like, I’m more than happy to do so. Get Off Gluten!, the book I’m about to tell you about is a great resource to have on hand for several reasons. First because it’s a simple, chock full of info book including recipes that look fabulous. Second, we all have those times when friends and/or relatives need a little (and I mean little) intro to our gluten free world. This book is the perfect answer for that. Clearly, the author, JoAnn Farb has done her research and she has boiled it down, like maple syrup, to the clear facts. Enough so that non-gluten free people can get a glimpse and an understanding into our GF world.
She also has clearly done her homework when it comes to dairy-free and vegetarian, with good, consise, backed-up-by-research information. If you want to read more about her book, her work, and her mission, go to her website at www.getoffgluten.com.
Oh yes, and for those of you who are looking for a new gluten free bread recipe, JoAnn’s looks excellent. It’s a sourdough bread that you make with your own starter, made from red grapes and buckwheat flour! I will confess that I haven’t tried it yet, though I have a good excuse in that I’m still recovering from my bicycle accident and really need to keep my life as simple as possible. But once I deep six the crutches, I’ll be sure to try her “revolutionary bread recipe”.
