I was in the bookstore the other day perusing the bargain shelves, the ones near the front where a serendipitous collection of a nonfiction, do it yourself, how tos, and self help books are offer at highly affordable prices. I was surprised to note a half dozen gluten-free cookbooks of one flavor or another–gluten-free cooking for kids, gluten-free cakes, gluten-free crockpot, etc.
Not to sell myself short, skip libraries or endorse any one book or author, but it seems like gluten-free is hitting the mainstream in more ways than one. It’s nice to see that a diet restriction once thought imaginary or eccentric at best is making inroads into the mass market. I’m enjoying the challenge of gluten-free cooking and baking and am glad that more resources are available. I love my old cookbooks and still use them with my own adaptations, and am looking forward to more recipes.
