Local author Patricia Austin reads her new book Patisseries Gluten Free: The Art of French Pastry. If you like to bake and need to make gluten free treats, this is the book for you!
Patisserie Gluten Free is the blossoming of years of recipe development and a lifelong love of baking. Patricia makes her swoon-worthy gluten-free pastries using ingredients from nearby farms, local purveyors, and her own backyard complete with hens, honeybees, and edible flowers growing out back. From the French Apple Cake to the simple Chocolate Sea Salt Sables, the results surprise and bring a smile to the staunchest of gluten-free skeptics. This beautifully photographed cookbook is unique in presenting some of the tastiest treats made without gluten. Home bakers will be able to create memorable European style desserts, ranging from the simple comfort of hand cookies to the ooh-la-la of elaborate puff pastries.
