The Wheat-Free Cook
Gluten-Free Recipes for Everyone
Selected by Sara Moulton on “Good Morning America” as one of the Top Ten Cookbooks of 2007.
Jacqueline Mallorca takes gluten-free cooking into the mainstream by presenting delectable recipes that appeal to everyone at the table.
Inspired by her travels in Europe as well as the eclectic wine country cuisine of Northern California, this gluten-free expert presents easy ways to make everything from fig-quinoa breakfast bars and delectable yogurt pancakes to a chestnut and sausage dressing that upstages the holiday bird. In addition, Mallorca offers a nutritionally sound, lighter style of baking that results in gluten-free breads, cakes and cookies that look and taste as though they came from a boutique bakery.
Whether for food aficionados with celiac disease like Mallorca herself, those with a wheat allergy, or simply health-conscious cooks, The Wheat Free Cook is the ultimate cookbook for those who must — or simply want to — avoid wheat.

Ranked among Best Cookbooks of 2009 by both The Washington Post and Sara Moulton/Good Morning America, Jacqueline Mallorca’s latest cookbook, Gluten-Free Italian, puts great Italian food back within reach for the wheat-challenged food lover.
Overflowing with ideas for contemporary Italian food, this gluten-free expert turns deprivation into a delicious dining experience for the whole family. Eating the Italian way is healthful as well as rewarding, and the author makes full use of fresh produce, alternative grains and flours, lean protein, great cheeses, olive oil, nuts, and the savory extras that define an Italian pantry.
Mallorca’s main focus is on those Italian dishes that the gluten-intolerant would normally have to avoid: savory crostini and bruschetta; breads; Mediterranean veggies with wonderful stuffings or toppings that include bread crumbs; homemade ravioli and cannelloni; quickly-made fish, chicken and meat dishes that involve flour or breading; and truly delectable desserts. In short, Gluten-Free Italian is a must for anyone who can’t eat wheat.
