If you're eating gluten-free, you know the challenges of bread. You probably know where to get the packaged stuff and you know the exorbitant cost. Maybe you've bought mixes and bread makers in a vain attempt to avoid the mystery of how to bake gluten-free at home altogether. Now, thanks to Nicole Hunn, you don't have to settle for the high price of packaged, frozen loaves. Welcome to easy, budget-friendly, delicious recipes for all your favorites, from shaped breads to flatbreads, biscuits, scones, and muffins. You'll learn to master lean crusty white bread, hearty whole-grain, fragrant cinnamon swirl, decadent cheese bread, not to mention a wild yeast starter you'll use to make everything imaginable, including a real no-rye "rye" bread. And you won't need a bread machine or any fancy supplies. Nicole covers all the essentials, including: recipes from a bread flour that makes it all work, all-purpose flour blends, a whole-grain blend, and a pastry flour; key techniques; the secrets to working ably with gluten-free dough; and even a whole section on troubleshooting, in case things go off the rails a bit. Gluten-Free on a Shoestring Bakes Bread tells you everything you need to know to make the artisan-style bread you've been missing - and at a fraction of the cost.
