I have to be honest. I own one Gluten free cookbook that was a gift. I have not made one recipe from it. I tend to find traditional recipes and tweak them based on our dietary restrictions. So I had to go to Amazon.com to come up with some great Gluten Free Cookbooks that you might want to carry in your Cookbook Library. If you are looking for a Hanukkah gift and know someone who is thinking about going Gluten Free, here are some suggestions. Hopefully, one day, you will have MINE on your shelf! The books I chose received 4 to 5 stars, were from different authors and different food backgrounds. Some focus on bread, some on desserts, some on main dishes. They all looked wonderful.
