Announcing My Gluten-Free 101 Blog Tour

I am happy to announce the publication of my latest cookbook,

Gluten-Free 101: The Essential Beginner’s Guide to Easy Gluten-Free Cooking (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, January 2014).

And, this week we launch the blog tour for the book. What’s a blog tour? It is a planned series of blog posts by gluten-free experts who discuss my book, perhaps provide a recipe, and maybe even send you a free copy!

So, please visit these marvelous blogs from my supportive colleagues and please share the information with others:

Beginners Need a Book for Beginners

Now, little about the book. I believe that living a gluten-free lifestyle can be fun, delicious, and easy. But it wasn’t always that way for me. Like other beginners, I was baffled by unfamiliar ingredients and new cooking techniques when I first adopted a gluten-free diet many years ago. It can be confusing, I know.

From my own experience, I recognized the need for a cookbook that makes it easy for beginners to make a simple and positive transition to cooking gluten-free meals. So I wrote Gluten-Free 101, explaining how to select and work with the best gluten-free foods from an extensive and sometimes confusing product shelf, how to continue eating healthfully, and how to master basic gluten-free cooking techniques—such as baking delicious breads or rolling gluten-free pizza dough or piecrust, all with easy-to-follow instructions.

Enjoy Your Favorite Foods

One thing I hear frequently is how much you miss your favorite foods such as pizza, bread, and pasta— and all-American desserts such as brownies, cakes, and cookies.” And you miss childhood favorites such as meat loaf, macaroni-and-cheese, spaghetti and meatballs, and comfort-food casseroles. So the book focuses on familiar dishes, but introduces time-saving, simplifying shortcuts and tips that are especially helpful to beginners.

Get Your Copy and Buy One for a Friend

Gluten-Free 101 is a perfect gift for someone who has just been diagnosed with gluten intolerance or non-celiac gluten sensitivity—maybe it’s a gift to yourself or a beloved friend or relative. If you want a signed bookplate that you can paste in the front of the book (making it a signed copy) email me at Enjoy!
