Don't Know If This Will Be Good

I heard the ad for today's "Fresh Air with Terry Gross" in NPR this morning and they are having people from America's Test Kitchen on to talk about the best gluten-free recipes. In my area it will be on at six PM. It looks from the comments that it has already aired in some areas and that they talked about the "fad" of gluten-free. But maybe there will be some good tips on cooking. I didn't read the whole article here yet, but they did say King Arthur was the best flour they have found so far (and that's the one I use :) )

We love the show America's Test Kitchen. I have read the articles about the cookbook and already ordered one.

They did their homework on celiac and mention it frequently in the articles. Not sure about the fad comment.

I did not feel that way reading the introduction to the book at all. They "get it". :) .

 

I'd say..listen to it!

I close the shop at six and it comes on at six here. I'll only miss what they say between getting out of the car and into the house. :lol:

I just listened to the first third and it is excellent thus far!

 

There is the standard references to "fad" diets and no mention of Celiac Disease thus far -- that said they do a fantastic job of explaining the kitchen chemistry required to make good tasting gluten-free baked goods and bread. 

 

The gentleman said something in the intro that those of us that have spent time baking gluten-free know very well.

 

Replacing gluten is "really complicated" and learning to do so well is "surprisingly challenging and intellectually stimulating".

 

Overall -- worth a listen and I'll go back and listen to the rest later today.

 

Thanks for sharing : )

My Aunt bought me that cookbook as a surprise gift last week and I LOVE IT!   Hands down the best gluten-free cookbook out there.  They recommend their flour blend recipe 1st, king arthur flour blend 2nd, and bobs red mill blend 3rd, giving any needed adjustments for each.  I haven't combed completely through every recipe but it definitely seems like it is written towards Celiacs but they seem to avoid the Fad vs medical conversation.  It is focused more on how to make your stuff not taste like crap.  After I heal up from my surgery I am going to try out some of their stuff, I use King Arthur Flour but I may try out their blend recipe.  But great how-tos, reasons why they are doing things, etc.

    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!
