Gluten Free Table - Cookbook Review

I grew up watching more cooking shows than cartoons.  My grandmother and I always watched Julia Child on Saturday mornings because she came on right after the sewing lady.  My second cooking show memory was Emeril Lagasse's original cooking show - the one where it was just him cooking and talking to the camera....before his Emeril Live show.  I found him mesmerizing.  

Recently I came across this gluten free cookbook written by Emeril's daughters!  The Gluten Free Table.

It's a beautifully written cookbook both informational and filled with personal stories - which I love.  Also, almost every recipe had a full color photo - a personal requirement of mine when it comes to cookbooks and sometimes hard to find in relation to gluten free specific cookbooks.  I just really need to know what the end result "should" look like....especially if I'm converting something to gluten free!  And I just love food photography.  This book has delicious photos.  There is a wide variety of dishes represented in this book so I feel it's fairly well rounded.  

A couple recipes that sparked my interest:
Mini Goat Cheese and Fig Pizzas
French Onion Soup
Jalapeño and Cheddar Cornbread
Panetta and Sage Potato Pie
Red Beans and Rice
Chickpea and Ginger Curry
Flourless Chocolate and Almond Cake
Lemon and Blackberry Cheesecake * that's when I decided to buy this cookbook!
Lemon Squares

In general, I'm not a huge fan of gluten free specific cookbooks but this one is really great!  Even though I don't cook from cookbooks - I do love them for ideas and I love them for being books.  If you're newer to gluten free cooking - this would be a great resource and would have you eating for months!! 


Always, J
