Even if one isn't usually much of a baker, if one turns a page and finds a photograph of a hearty gluten free scone covered with generous dollops of maple sugar icing, for instance, somehow one might find the time to bake those scones before work!
(Full disclosure: I have yet to find an excellent recipe for a gluten free scone; I'm developing one at present!)
Enter Diane Jacob, a full-time writing coach, author, and freelance editor. Previously a newspaper, magazine, and publishing company editor-in-chief, she has received awards for culinary writing from distinguished organizations; and, in 2013, was named the Joseph Hoare Gastronomic Writer in Residence for Canada's most prestigious cooking school: the Stratford Chef’s School.
I asked Diane if I could feature cookbooks by those on her client list, and she graciously consented. Because of Diane's vast experience in the world of food and cuisine, I know these cookbooks are good bets, although I haven't had the chance to review some of them personally.
This is the first of a few different posts where I will feature cookbooks by some of Diane's clients: (she has many more than those featured here)!
Most of the books are not exclusively gluten free (a few are); but I have tried to include those likely to include many gluten free recipes.
I have also provided affiliate links (Amazon and perhaps others) to the cookbooks; if you click on a link and buy a book, I will receive a small commission -- and the book will be the same price for you!
