Breads & Pizza

Happy Gluten-Free Holidays!

I just returned to Brooklyn after shooting my next cookbook on location at my house in upstate New York. I’m finally putting the finishing touches on the manuscript and can’t believe the holidays kickoff this week! Meanwhile, I’d love to share my latest collection of more than 40 gluten-free recipes that I developed exclusively for Food & Wine magazine, where I’m a F&W Online Columnist.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Cinnamon-Raisin Bread

What’s the one food that Isaiah misses the most? Bread, of course. Over the years, we’ve found some good store-bought loaves, but I’ve missed the smell of baking bread.

The truth: I wanted to believe that I could make anything gluten-free. That didn’t turn out to be the case—at least, not when it came to bread.

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free Sun-Dried Tomato and Olive Focaccia

You know what it’s like to not be able to have bread or pizza or focaccia. My family does, too. For the past five years, I’ve been trying off-and-on to replicate the chew, the bounce and the bend that occurs naturally in a gluten-full bread. I’ve made batches and batches of doughs—all failures. But, those failures have led me to the biggest bread success I’ve ever had. And I’m happy to share it with you.
