A return to the familiar rhythm of baking with outcomes that rival traditional recipes

Pâtisserie Gluten Free offers a tantalizing collection of gluten-free recipes. This beautifully photographed cookbook is unique in presenting some of the most challenging treats to make without gluten: classic French pastries.
Written with meticulous detail and a warm and inviting style, Pâtisserie Gluten Free includes a wide array of recipes, ranging from delightful buttery French cookies to the ooh là là of elaborate flaky puff pastries.
The recipes skip the commonly used gluten-free binders—xanthan gum and guar gum—that are known to be of digestive sensitivity for many individuals. The takeaway is an elevated experience in gluten-free baking; from chocolate sea salt sablés to almond croissants, the results surprise and bring a smile to the staunchest of gluten-free skeptics.

About the Author

Patricia Austin began her lifetime love of baking as a young child helping her father make doughnuts. At age seventeen, she became a croissant maker, and later worked as pastry chef assistant to Jeffrey Hamelman in Brattleboro, Vermont. From 1989 to 1996, she co-owned and operated the Bread Tree Bakery in Keene, New Hampshire. In 2005, Patricia founded her cottage industry, Wild Flour Vermont Bakery. She also works as a baking consultant and recipe developer and tester. Her most recent projects include recipe testing for world-renowned pastry chef Pierre Hermé’s book Pierre HerméMacarons, as well as dessert testing for the MasterChef series cookbooks. While Patricia follows a gluten-free diet, she continues to create both traditional and gluten-free French, European, and American-style pastries. She lives in southern Vermont.

Praise For…

Pâtisserie Gluten Free is remarkable in many ways. First because it brings together in one place dozens of delectable cakes and pastries that have been painstakingly crafted by the hands of a dedicated chef (and thoroughly explained by her excellent and clear writing). Patricia presents us with an expansive array of flavors and textures, and in the aggregate these offer us the potential of months if not years of exploration in our kitchens as we savor the recipes.”
—Jeffrey Hamelman, King Arthur Bakery director, from his foreword

“Using all five senses, Patricia Austin is changing the way home cooks learn how to bake classic French favorites. Patricia’s knowledge of French pastry and her ability to adapt her recipes to a gluten-free format is not only brilliant, but also revolutionary! Having worked closely with Patricia on my own book, I know her attention to detail, and it shows clearly in the pages of this book.”
—Shaun O’Neale, MasterChef Season 7 winner

“This is a cookbook that every baker should have in their collection. Patricia’s work is beautiful and memorably delicious, and she has accomplished it all without gluten, gums, or GMOs!”
