Hagman, a pioneer in recipes made especially for celiacs and others allergic to wheat and gluten (see The Gluten-Free Gourmet, LJ 6/15/90, and More from the Gluten-Free Gourmet, LJ 6/15/93), has, in this book, added many new low-fat, quick-and-easy recipes. She lists the new bean flours (with sources for them) that can be used in her cake, pie, and cookie recipes and provides bread recipes for bread machines using these new wheat-free flours. Hagman also features recipes for every part of the meal, including stir-fry dinners and recipes for vegetarians; she does use a fair amount of cheese and eggs in these. Some of the recipes (such as mock apple pie filling with zucchini) would interest gourmets and cooks who like to experiment as well as those who find it necessary, healthwise, to adopt such a diet. Highly recommended for all health and cooking collections. (Index not seen.)?Loraine F. Sweetland, Information Problem Solvers, Laurel, Md.

Imagine a world where wheat and anything made of rye, oats, or barley were off-limits, then further imagine being deprived of favorite recipes from lasagna and pizza to crusty oven-fresh bread and apple pie. That's what faces people with an autoimmune system refusing to tolerate these food products. Hagman emphasizes speed of preparation and low-fat/low-cholesterol recipes. Her more than 175 dishes don't venture too far from the traditional fare; nor will her ingredient substitutes cause much consternation or surprise among home chefs. The only serious omission is the absence of nutritional analyses for any of the recipes.
