I've been following Nicole Hunn's blog "gluten free on a shoestring" for a while now because due to food intolerances we use a variety of different flours and this blog is a real treasure trove for everybody who wants or has to try something different.
"Gluten-Free Small Bites" is proof of that either. It is a wonderful book full of many many delicious little snacks to be eaten at parties or on the go. Sweet like cookies or something like miniature Shepherd's Pies, Wonton Wrappers, Tacos, Burritos, Pizza, Pigs in Blankets...no matter what you' re looking for you'll find it in here.
The best thing is that it's not just the recipes themselves but this book enables you to deal with the challenge of gluten free baking by giving tipps on the right flour blend for each purpose and how best to work with it among many other things..
The recipes are well structured, easy to follow and illustrated with many delicious looking photographs that will make it very hard to decide where to start because they all look just amazing - and the end products taste amazing as well!
This wonderful book is also well written, even the hard facts about the different kinds of flours and such are never boring or dry to read whereas the recipes are precise and straight to the point.
No matter why you're looking for a gluten free cook book - in my eyes "Gluten-Free Small Bites" is definitely a very good choice!
