I'm New To Everything!

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I'm new to the forum and thought I should say hello. My fiance was just diagnosed with celiac's. He's been asked not to change his diet quite yet since they want to do an endoscopy and some more tests, but soon things will undergo a big shift. I make homemade bread and pasta on a regular basis, and I'm certainly interested in how to change my cooking to help him (though I don't think I'm going to go gluten-free myself). This looks like a fabulous and very useful forum, so I'm looking forward to getting involved!

Hello, and welcome to the board. It's great that you want to learn how to change things over.

If you will still be baking 'gluten' products, you will need to keep all that "floating" flour in mind. Flour tends to coat everything :( Also, gluten free baking should not be done in your old pans, as the corners are impossible to clean properly.

As for pasta, there is a rice pasta called Tinkyada that is very good :P

It really is a huge learning curve, but you have come to the right place. There is a lot of super people on this forum.

Nini has a "newbe" kit. I'm sure someone here can give you the link to it.

Thanks to both of you. This seems like such a great resource. My fiance's Scottish and I'm American, and I'm heading over to the states soon to get set up for our marriage and move to the U.S. I think that'll be a great opportunity to start fresh with a gluten-free kitchen. We'll be living near my family so I can always go to mom's house if I need need need to bake some wheat bread (I have those days).

I'd love to get my hands on Nini's newbie kit. I saw it suggested to someone else, but I haven't managed to track it down yet.

You should check out The Gluten Free Gourmet cookbook. It's the best cookbook I've found. I've never made a bread, cake or cookie that isn't yummy from it.


Gluten-Free since September 15, 2005.

Peanut-Free since July 2006.

Welcome!

I would also recommend reading Gluten Free for Dummies by D. Korn.

She is very knowledgeable and the book is written in an "easy to follow" way.

I just got a new cookbook for X-mas called "Gluten Free Bread Baking" - I haven't used it, but that is only because I am scared of my bread machine...
