Cannelle et Vanille: Nourishing, Gluten-Free Recipes for Every Meal and Mood by Aran Goyoaga
This is a wonderful cookbook if your only issue is gluten. I run my own organic farm & as a result, spend a lot of time getting to know my food. Cooking from scratch is pretty much the norm for me. Before I knew what was wrong with me I was making many of the amazing recipes in this book. Now that I know I have an autoimmune disease, I follow an AIP (autoimmune protocol) diet which makes pretty much all of these recipes off limits. On top of that, before I knew I needed an ant-inflammatory diet, I found I needed a Low FODMAPs diet. So this means my diet can be pretty tough. Not sticking with it however, is not worth it. The pain, the exhaustion, the GI issues. Horrible. I'd rather live this incredibly restricted although very nutrient rich diet than live a life that I'd hardly call living.
Anyway, seriously, this book is awesome if you love to cook from scratch. I don't know about you, but I loath "cookbooks" that tell me to grab a can of this, a box of that, a bag of this, etc. It's just a processed food sh*t storm. Isn't cooking supposed to be about getting away from the toxic crap & reconnecting with ones food? I think so! While you're at it, be sure to visit your local farmers market, for fresh wholesome foods. You can meet your farmer & learn how they grow/raise their foods & decide if you want to support them. Note, that some farmers markets allow resellers, which I think is total BS, but I'm not the one running these things.
Anyway, (again), this book is fabulous. If you want to learn how to make your own cultured butter, nut milks, nut butters, mayonnaise, drinking vinegars, broths or stocks, home made pasta, gluten free sourdough starter - I love this! Plus there are your recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, get togethers, etc. The book is filled with beautiful photos. I wouldn't call it "food porn" the photos are too classy for that.
If you are serious about cooking (or want to get serious) &/or are looking for a wonderful gift for a favorite Foodie, you just can't go wrong with this masterpiece.
Overall, I love it.
