When French-trained pastry chef Karen Morgan was told that she could no longer enjoy the homemade pastas, breads and pastries of her youth, she went through what most would call a gastronomic depression. But she refused to sacrifice her culinary heritage and instead spent the next five years teaching herself how to perfect the art of gluten-free baking and recipe development. The Art of Gluten-Free Baking features 100 of your favourite comfort foods transformed into gluten-free delights. These treats boast the same taste, texture, and appearance as their gluten-based inspirations; some might even say better, especially those who have tried Karen's legendary lemon-raspberry pop tarts. The secret to creating authentic texture is in Morgan's famous gluten-free flour blends for typical dough's--cake/muffin, pasta and bread. Divided by dough type, The Art of Gluten-Free Baking empowers its readers to make virtually any recipe into a delicious, gluten-free version.
