Einkorn by Carla Bartolucci
My rating: 4 of 5 spoons
I don't have a gluten intolerance that I know of, but I know many people that do. The history of this wheat fascinated me and I couldn't wait to try it. My book looks like a porcupine with all the bits of paper sticking out of recipes I want to try! They look all look so delicious!
I'm a Southern girl, so biscuits are a big part of my life. I had to try the Cheddar Bacon Biscuits. I left out the bacon this first time as I was fighting a migraine (that tells you how bad I wanted to start cooking from this book!) and didn't feel like messing with it. The prep work and rolling out is very different from how I'm used to making biscuits, but I pressed on anxious to see how they turned out.
It definitely wasn't a typical, Southern biscuit, but then I wasn't really expecting it to be. It was kind of a cross between a biscuit and a cheese straw--and you won't find me complaining about that as I love both!! It's definitely given me the incentive to try more recipes. Now it's just deciding among the multitude which one to do next!
This is a great cookbook for people who are gluten intolerant or cook for those who are, or are just trying to eat healthier. There is a wide variety of recipes that will keep you cooking for a long time. Get some einkorn flour, and give it a go!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
