"Like no other gluten-free cookbook, Pete and Kelli's Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking touches on the essential elements of why food, culinary culture, and family traditions are so important. What we eat is part of who we are. When a diagnosis of celiac disease or gluten sensitivity forces us to eliminate a key ingredient, preparing our favorite meals can become difficult and frustrating. This book reminds us that all we need are fresh, wholesome ingredients and a little creative guidance. Thank you, Pete and Kelli, for providing that guidance. The principles of good cooking, complete with mouth-watering recipes, are woven throughout the pages of this book. Oh, and they just happen to be deliciously gluten-free!"

--Elise Wiggins, executive chef, Panzano, Denver, Colorado
"Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking is a true delight. It's filled with uncomplicated recipes you'll want to make-- whether you eat gluten-free or not. But, my favorite aspect is that the authors share their history with each dish . . . like homemade French fries using mom's method; a unique scallop dish first tasted when dining out, now improved and shared annually with college friends; or a lemon syrup-infused poppy seed bread inspired by a vendor from the local farmer's market. We all have those histories, don't we? Great food is about so much more than the food itself. You'll want this cookbook on your kitchen shelf, so you can create your own memories with these dishes."
--Shirley Braden, author/owner, gfe--gluten free easily blog (http: //glutenfreeeasily.com) and leader, King George Gluten Intolerance and Celiac Group (KGGICG)

"Of the many cookbooks that I have received to add to our support group library, Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking is the first one that I sat down with and went through, cover to cover. That is partly because I found the format and the presentation so appealing, and also because the recipes just sounded so darn good. Like you, I love cilantro, garlic, and many of the other ingredients that you use in your recipes--and I appreciate that you don't require too many exotic ingredients. I think you have a winner on your hands!"

Trust me, you won't be disappointed in this cookbook. It's worth having on your shelf just for the pastry dough recipe."
