Gluten-Free at BEA 2015

As I always do at Book Expo America (BEA), I look for what's new in gluten-free writing and cookbooks. I almost didn't think I was going to find anything this year, but then I did come across three publishers with new books being featured in their booths.

1. Good Without Gluten by Frederique Jules, Jennifer Lepoutre, Mitsuru Yanase (Murdoch Books, October 2015)
When we were in Paris, one of the places we thought about eating at was No Glu. Ultimately, we passed up this gluten-free restaurant because it wasn't in a location that fit with our travel schedule and it seemed a bit pricey. But now, if we wanted to, we could make some No Glu-inspired French delicacies at home with the new Good Without Gluten cookbook by the No Glu chefs.

2. Gluten-Free Family Favorites by Kelli and Peter Bronski (The Experiment, out now)
While this book isn't necessarily new, it was new to me! I stopped in at The Experiment booth and inquired if, among the other cookbooks I saw, they had any gluten-free cookbooks. Bingo! The Experiment publishes this cookbook and a few others from the Bronski family, including Artisanal Gluten-Free Cooking and Artisanal Gluten-Free Cupcakes. (Peter Bronski also wrote a guide with Melissa McLean Jory for athletes on a gluten-free diet called The Gluten-Free Edge.)

3. Gluten-Free Classic Snacks by Nicole Hunn (Da Capo Lifelong Books, out now)
This cookbook seems to sum up my philosophy when it comes to gluten-free cooking: just because you're on a gluten-free diet doesn't mean you can't enjoy some of your favorite foods! If you still want to enjoy Girl Scout Thin Mints, Hostess Cupcakes, and Kellogg's Pop Tarts Toaster Pastries, then you can make them gluten-free in your home kitchen so you never have to miss out!

4. Various Gluten-Free Books (Ryland Peters & Small/Cico Books, out now)
I also stopped in at the Ryland Peters & Small/Cico Books booth to see if they had anything new in the way of gluten-free cookbooks. While there is nothing new for fall, the publisher does have several books already available: The Easy Kitchen: Gluten-Free Recipes, The Savory Gluten-Free Baker, The Gluten-Free Baker, and Gluten-Free Holiday.
