Bread and Butter by Erin McKenna

Since I recently had a family member switch to a gluten-free diet because of an allergy, I thought this book would be perfect to review! "Bread and Butter: Gluten-free Vegan recipes to fill your bread basket" by Erin Mckenna is a beautifully illustrated hardcover cookbook filled with 160 pages of gluten-free goodness. It also includes a troubleshooting chapter and ingredient assistance.

The recipes include sandwich bread, English muffins, pizza dough, scones, tortillas, biscuits, crackers, puff pastry and so much more! It even includes other recipes such as vegan dressings, pizza sauce and hummus. Most of the recipes are simple and easy to understand, and each one tells you how much it makes. Each recipe includes full color photos and the pages have bright and cheery backgrounds.

When I look for a good cookbook, I want to know that the chef has extensive experience before I purchase their book. Gluten-free and vegan cooking is more than just a hobby to author, Erin Mckenna. It's her career. Erin Mckenna is the founder and head baker of BabyCakes NYC and Bakery Valentine NYC, bakeries that specialize in gluten-free vegan pastries and baked goods, with outposts in New York City, Los Angeles, and Disney Springs at Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida. This is her third book, but the first to focus on savory breads.

I think "Bread and Butter" is a resourceful guide to baking gluten free. I loved flipping through the pages, peeking at the delicious recipes. I will definitely be trying a few of these out in the near future. I love that the author has put such love into these recipes so even the gluten-free folks can enjoy delicious breads!

I received this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion. I rate this book as 5 stars.
