Calling All Gf Cooks!

19 posts in this topic

Okay all you fabulous gluten-free cooks out there here is the deal.... as some of you know I have been putting together recipes for some time now to put out cookbook. So far, I have nearly 100 recipes, but I would like to get a few more before I present it to the publisher. So if any of you would like to contribute, I'd love to hear/read your suggestions/recipes.

Please keep in mind that my book is not exactly like the books on gluten-free cooking you find now on the market, mine is more about (somewhat upscale, but not advanced) cooking with fresh ingredients, and it's going to include the following sections:

Hee hee... thanks, I'm so nervous! I am drafting my proposals for the publishers as we speak and I keep thinking what if they hate it? or scarier still what if they love it? I think no matter what the responses are I'm gonna freak out. :P

Kathleen - are you planning on having some ethnic recipes? Since going gluten-free, I really miss going out to ethnic restaurants...I've been worried that the language barrier isssue would be a problem. (I've only gone once... to an Indian restaurant where the manager spoke English well enough). I'd love to learn to make my own Thai/Indian/ etc. foods. Sara

Would you be willing to post your chili rellenos recipe? I have been lusting for some for a long time now, but too nervous to try. good luck with the publishers. If they don;t think there's a market, just tell them to look at this site, and how hungry we all are for info.

I made some "Char Sui Bao's" today (pronounced cha sue bow), they are a Chinese bun filled with barbequed pork. It was the first time I attemped this particular feat. I had been making them for a couple of years before we went gluten free and hadn't made any since because of the challange, but they turned out awsome! Not quite the depth of color that wheat bread will get, but the taste was almost perfect.... I am definately going to put them into my book.... I am also going to work on a wonton skin, something that we can also use for potstickers too, but I need to find the time to experiment more.

Thanks for all the support guys!

Oops, I forgot... Libby, I don't mind posting the rellanos recipe, give me some time to type it up though, I have it tucked into a drawer with my million other recipes and need to pull it out.

It's really easy though.... roast & skin your chilies, then make a slit down the center and stuff them with cheese (I use monterey jack) then dip in rice flour, beaten egg and gluten-free bread crumbs. Pan fry and serve with a chili sauce or sour cream or whatever you prefer. I will post something a little more specific when I organize everything, but don't be afraid to give them a try.

Are you interested at all in some Indian recipes? In South India they make most of their breads from rice and lentils, and they turn out fantastically.

Kathleen-

thanks for being generous with your recipe- I can't wait to try it out!

shimma-

I would love to try out some indain breads. This is the first time in my life I have been excited about baking, or breads. I tried somebody's cinnamon poori recipe yesterday- yum. I did miss cinamon toast. By all means, throw some ideas out there. I will give em a try.

Here is a wonderful gluten-free fried chicken breast recipe.

1. Dust your chicken with a legal flour

2. Roll it in soaked ground flaxseed. (2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and 2/3

cup of lukewarm water. Give this mix time to absorb. 4 to 5 minutes.

3. roll it in brown rice bread crumbs. I have only used HOL-GRAIN bread crumbs.

4. Then put in in your pan with olive oil, salt it and cook it. Make sure you have

enough HOT oil so your chicken does not stick.

This is a 5 star out of 5. I make it for company & they love it.

If you want to include this in your recipe book it is ok with me.

Also my favorite gluten-free bread recipe I found on the internet:

http://bread.allrecipies.com/az/lisnsgltnfrbrd.asp

It doesn't have the right consistency for sandwhiches, but if you toast or broil it , it is YUMMY! My whole faimily eats it.

Thanks for all the recipe ideas and the support. I hijacked a Pastry chef friend of mine and she is going to help me expand my dessert section, becuase since I generally only cook "savory" cusine, my dessert section was lacking.

You guys are great!

Kathleen,

Here's a dessert recipe I posted in another thread recently. I've found versions of this recipe in several places, and I particularly like it because it doesn't involve any substitutions -- this is actually a recipe that people who can eat gluten can have. Not that I don't love cake made with gluten-free flour, but sometimes it's nice to just have something like everyone else would. I made this for Christmas this year and my non-celiac parents and their food-snob guests RAVED about it. It's light and airy but intensely flavored.

Here's a flourless recipe that's just incredible:

in heatproof bowl in pan of simmering water, melt 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate with 3 tablespoons water or coffee and 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla.

meanwhile separate 6 eggs and beat the whites into soft peaks.

Thanks Laura!

I have a decadence cake that is very similar, sometimes it's called a fallen souffle cake as well, because of the souffle method used to make it. However, I have never tried to make it into a roll cake and that sounds fantastic.

Just for everyone elses benifit, this cake is awesome served with fresh whipped cream, as suggested by Laura, but also with a raspberry sauce (made by pureeing raspberries, then straining them and adding sugar to taste, may need to heat in sauce pan to melt sugar). It's also very good coated in a chocolate ganache (50% chocolate & 50% heavy cream, melted together), then served with gluten-free vanilla ice cream.

Laura, I would love to see your almond cake recipe, I recently found an almond tart recipe that is really good, but I need to make it gluten-free.

Thanks again!

Well... I have to finish writting it first, but it's nearly there! After that, it goes to print and then you will probably be able to get it anywhere you would buy cookbooks. And I am counting on you to buy it!

Let us know when it comes out, and what the title is. My favorite bookstore has already told me that they will order it for me, if they do not have it in stock.

    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)

    • I had a biopsy done (2 samples, 1 on a lesion and 1 next to lesions), and also more bloodwork done. All came back negative. However, I only had been eating gluten for 2 weeks prior, and it took a week of gluten for lesions to reappear. I also used a topical steroid off and on (1x a week approximately) for a month or so before testing. The dermatologist told me to stay off gluten though, and said she wants to do more allergy testing (her next open testing appt is in 6 months!!). I know I'm not the DR, but I dont think it's allergies...without a doubt, my skin begins clearing about 2 weeks post gluten-free diet...this is without changing anything else in my lifestyle. And when i had to go back on gluten before my biopsy, it took about a week, but did reappear. Now, about 2 weeks post biopsy and gluten-free, it had begun clearing until i worked outside all day in heat, humidity,  sweat etc and it has definitely irritated all the places that were healing (not new breakouts, just aggravating what was going away!). All that being said, i have a friend who is an MD( who's hobby is to attend conferences on skin conditions!), and she has told me that without a doubt, I have celiac/DH.  I think I just feel like I need test results and paperwork to show for it...especially to show family members who are unsupportive (gross understatement!) of the extreme changes I've had to make!
    • Sorry ! I have never cruised before.  Just wanting to follow your topic.  Good luck! Have a great,  safe vacation.  
    • Hi there, I hope you're all having a good day! I'll be heading on a week-long Carnival cruise shortly and had a few questions: -What is the tipping protocol? I've prepaid gratuities, but feel like the food request will warrant something extra. Should I tip the headwaiter? Hostess? Regular waiter? Chef? Those cooking at, say, the sandwich or pasta bars? If so, how much is appropriate, and should I tip at the beginning of the cruise, the end, or split it up? -It looks like the main dining room will be closed during lunch hours on most days. Any recommendations on safe bets for midday meals? I'll be on the Carnival Sunshine, for what that's worth. Thank you so much for any information you can share!
