Library Journal Review

Peltre (La Tartine Gourmande) presents a new collection of family-friendly recipes that just happen to be gluten free, including minestrone soup with cilantro pesto, round zucchini stuffed with millet and vegetables, and saffron-flavored carrot risotto with bay scallops and pistachios. Some of the listed ingredients (e.g., celeriac, flax seed, teff flour) and tools (e.g., mandoline, kitchen scale) may intimidate those just starting out, but Peltre supplies an abundance of stunning photographs to coax them toward the less familiar. Her more than ten years' experience cooking gluten free particularly shines through in recipes for elegant breakfasts, breads, tarts, and desserts. Some dishes include meat and seafood but most are vegetarian. VERDICT Peltre's latest shows how cooking for gluten-free eaters doesn't have to be stressful. Highly recommended for foodies, flexitarians, and confident home cooks who are new to gluten-free cooking. © Copyright 2016. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Publishers Weekly Review

Food stylist, photographer, and award-winning blogger Peltre (La Tartine Gourmande) takes a "relaxed, modern approach to classic French cooking" with a healthy twist. These 120 gluten-free recipes provide home cooks with attractive, nourishing everyday meals for the family table based on French cooking traditions along with global influences and flavors. Recipes include morning foods, lunch soups, savory tarts, salads, snacks, recipe favorites cooked with daughter Lulu, main and side dishes, and sweet treats. A savory kale and salmon breakfast quiche features a hazelnut crust. Corn, chorizo, and fennel soup is topped with steamed clams and parsley oil for lunch. Afternoon goûter includes chocolate crêpes and buttery madeleines, and there's wine-braised lamb stew with spring vegetables as a main course. Recommended equipment includes a scale, food processor, and mandoline as well as various pastry molds. For best results in baking, Peltre says, cooks need to keep seven types of sugar and multiple gluten-free nut and grain flours on hand. These refined recipes, depicted in Peltre's stunning photos, promote her philosophy that a "healthy relationship with food is essential to happiness." Her obsession with "beautiful food" is infectious, reminding readers that family togetherness comes from moments created around lovingly prepared home meals. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
