Living Without’s Favorite Books: Sophisticated Treats


Delicious, naturally gluten-free baked goods take center stage in Williams-Sonoma’s Gluten-Free Baking (Weldon Owen) by gourmet chef Kristine Kidd, former food editor of Bon Appetit magazine and now one of our contributing chefs. Kidd’s elegant collection of recipes ranges from warm comfort foods, such as Gingerbread and Sauteed Peaches, to sublime desserts like Almond Cake with Lemon Curd (topped with clouds of whipped frosting). Your favorite baked goods—cookies and muffins, scones and meringues, cakes and pies, puddings and custards—are full of flavor, texture and lift without the gluten. Gorgeous photographs by Annabelle Breakey make this beautiful book suitable for your kitchen table or your coffee table.
