This cookbook is totally useless for people living in the UK. All the recepies require special gluten free cakemixs from Betty Crocker or ingrediants that you just can't get in this country or if you can find it, it is really really expensive. Total waste of money to buy this book that you can't cook anything from. The recepies look lovely and I wish I could cook them! It is better to save your money and get someone elses book. Really recommend Phil Vickery's gluten free cookbook. All the recepies work, are really delicious and you can get all the ingrediants here. This book looked good, but what a disappointment.
I purchased it from Amazon only to be a bit disappointed because here in Canada [I'm in Toronto], you can only find the Betty Crocker GF cake mixes. Many of the recipes necessitate use of the GF Bisquick and GF Chocolate Chip mixes in the recipes but I can't find them anywhere so half the book is off limits to me now. If anyone can shed some light on where I can find those items, please do. Otherwise I'm surprised this limitation wasn't mentioned in the description of the book.
The recipes require too many types of flours and GF bisquick ($8 for a tiny box). It would be cheaper to buy the food product than it would be to make it yourself, when using this cookbook. The best GF cookbook that I have bought : Gluten-Free Family Favorites from authors Kelli and Peter Bronski. You can substitute the flour blend in those recipes with Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 baking flour and the recipes Don't require an insane amount of extra ingredients.
