Review & Giveaway: The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Bread: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free

covergfbread Review & Giveaway: The Allergy Free Cook Bakes Bread: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Egg Free

Quite a few people stumble into veganism by way of researching their food because of allergies, and if you’re one of those vegans The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Bread: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free will dazzle you with its crazy-huge collection of baked delights including sweet breads, muffins, cinnamon rolls, donuts, savoury crackers, biscuits, scones, tortillas, yeast breads, rolls, pitas, bagels, and pizza crusts.

Blogger and author Laurie Sadowski delivers an amazing number of recipes free from gluten, wheat, dairy, and eggs, as well free from soy, yeast, corn, tree nuts, peanut, and citrus. This book is the most comprehensive allergy/gluten-free bread baking collection I’ve seen to-date.

The array of ingredients used is incredible: this way of gluten-free eating is a way to vary your diet significantly, not restrict it! There are so many flours mixed and matched throughout this book that ye olde world wheat flours start to look pretty darn dull by comparison. With 7,000 edible plants in the world, cutting out a traditional staple can actually introduce you to a much wider of possibilities, and this book will help you explore that brave, new, healthful – and occasionally indulgent – world.

Several other allergy-free cookbooks replace gluten stretch and pliability with a huge increase in fat, occasionally sugar, too. I had to work at adapting less-processed, less-fatty pizza dough and bread recipes years ago – but with this book, the hard yards have been done. While my gluten-free recipes are simple and keep me amused, there’s a whole world of gluten-free breads I haven’t touched on, and they’re pretty much all in this book!

The introduction also features incredibly comprehensive information on how to interpret ingredient labels, how keep food allergens out of your environment, and get all the nutrients you need on a restricted different diet along with essential information on gluten-free flours, stocking a gluten-free pantry, and how to make substitutions for non-vegan and other problem ingredients. Additionally, Laurie also has another book out: The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Cakes & Cookies! I bet that one is equally as shiny.


I’m not much of a baker besides the absolute basics these days, so I’m giving this book away! If you want to snare yourself a copy of The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Bread: Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, drop me a comment and tell me what wheaty food you’d most like to see a gluten-free adaptation of… (Croissants? Yeah, I’ve never seen that one, either!) I’ll pick a commenter at random in a week to send the book to – and I’ll ship it to any country, guys! Nom nom nom.

    How about some type of non-gluten seitan? But croissants are hard to go past, so I would be happy to vote for them!

  • Nathan Reilly

    Another vote for croissants! Or Kit Kats.

    My pal would love this book! She misses beer and biscuits most of all she said. I would love to score this for her, she just found out a month ago she is allergic to all things wheat, dairy, and citrus. :(

    Gosh, I miss croissants. I’m lucky I went to Paris before I was aware of my wheat allergy :p I would love to see a gluten-free Tofurkey type loaf

  • DJ Illian

    I would love to see some gluten-free donuts! Yum yum.

  • Brooke Trantor

    Honestly, the THOUGHT of biscuits and scones that I can EAT never crossed my mind as a possibility! I love my coffee and breakfast pastries, so that is so exciting to me.
    I am now 9 months a diagnosed Celiac, and allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, nuts, shellfish, citric acid and many fruits and vegetables. While it was tough at first, I am embracing my diagnosis by finding new and exciting recipes and making a collection of recipe books. I would love to add this to my collection, and experiment with more recipes specific to my allergies. I get excited just thinking of what is in this book and would love to win a copy :) Thanks!

    Definitely croissants should be de-glutinized. I’ve also never made a really good GF cinnamon roll…

  • Heather D-G

    Puff pastry

  • bitt

  • Simona Cat

    Puff pastry and all the yeasty sweets like krapfens and sweet breads

  • Amanda

    I’d love to have a good gluten-free bagel. I miss those the most!
