How Can it Be Gluten Free with Jack Bishop

Gluten-free baking is often challenging and almost always disappointing. The proliferation of gluten-free mixes and flour blends should be welcome news, but no two products perform the same way. And unless you like gritty cakes, crumbly cookies, and gummy breads, most gluten-free recipes are far from ideal. The result of a yearlong odyssey in the test kitchen, The How Can It Be Gluten-Free Cookbook reinvents the rules of baking to deliver a collection of recipes representative of a quantum leap forward in the world of gluten-free baking (and cooking).
