[NFCA intern Rachel continues her gluten-free summer reading. Here, she reviews the latest cookbook from NFCA Athlete for Awareness Peter Bronski.]
As I flipped through the pages of Artisanal Gluten-Free Cupcakes, by Kelli and Peter Bronski, my stomach began to rumble in anticipation. The pictures made my eyes turn bright and my appetite grow. Each picture showed homemade treats made from scratch, with the perfect amount of icing on top and the perfect amount of garnish. I wanted to dive right in, even now as I’m typing.
The book offers 50 delicious, gluten-free and from-scratch cupcake recipes, plus tips for making dairy-free, egg-free, and refined sugar-free versions of them. Eighty-eight color photos provide the baker with a final product that seems obtainable. The style and organization makes it simple and easy to follow along, so baking is a cinch. From Cookies & Cream to Pina Colada, the range of cupcake flavors is endless.
Artisanal Gluten-Free Cupcakes is the Bronskis’ second book – a follow up to Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking, which was released 2009.
Peter is also one of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness’ (NFCA) Athletes for Awareness, and he happens to be speaking during NFCA’s free Webinar next Wednesday, June 29. He will be discussing active lifestyle changes for anyone diagnosed with celiac disease and nutritious gluten-free foods for maximizing exercise. His new book promotes these things as well, as his gluten-free recipes focus on all-natural ingredients.
Artisanal Gluten-Free Cupcakes sells for $16.95, which I find to be a great price for such a wonderful treat. To order a copy, visit Amazon.com or any major bookseller.
