Book Description

Wheat-free-cooking expert Carol Fenster reveals her time-saving tips and techniques to help cooks put homemade meals on the table in a flash.

In Carol Fenster's gluten-free cooking classes, the most frequently asked question is "How can I get a meal on the table in the least amount of time?" So often, cooking gluten-free means spending hours in the kitchen-making everything from scratch. But now, Fenster reveals all her shortcuts, tips, and timesaving techniques from nearly twenty years as the gluten-free cooking authority. The Quick & Easy principles in this book will get cooks in and out of the kitchen with less fuss than ever before.

In Gluten-Free Quick & Easy, a hot meal makes it to the table without a complicated ingredient list or a lengthy wait. Fenster emphasizes the necessity of "planned-overs"-not "left-overs"- that creatively use elements of one meal in the preparation of another, whether it becomes an ingredient the next day, the next week, or the next month. Recipes for make-ahead baking mixes and techniques to shorten baking times means cooks stay on track. And her comprehensive menu plans and ideas help pull together a week's worth of meals with ease.

Fenster's simple but delicious recipes include favorites like hearty breads, pizzas, and pasta. In less time than ever before, gluten-free cooks can whip up homestyle entrees and side dishes, tasty breakfasts, and elegant desserts for every meal of the day, every day of the week.

More and more people are suffering from a condition called celiac disease which means they have a severe and potentially deadly aversion to any wheat products. That's why they need to eat what is known as a "gluten-free" diet. This book of recipes from Dr. Carol Fenster is sensitive to the needs of this special sect of people because she is an outspoken leader on their behalf. She explains how to prepare your kitchen for a gluten-free lifestyle and then serves up some of the most tantalizing recipes that will rival those you'd find in any cookbook anywhere. There are even suggestions in the back of the book about how to substitute key ingredients in traditional recipes with gluten-free ones.
