San Francisco, CA (Sept. 29, 2014) – Karen Morgan, founder and chef of Austin’s Blackbird Bakery, announced San Francisco as the next stop of her book tour and signing of her latest gluten-free cookbook, The Everyday Art of Gluten-Free, published by Abrams. The Blackbird Bakery book tour, sponsored by Tito’s Vodka, is scheduled for Sept. 30th, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. at Omnivore Books on Food.
Morgan’s second gluten-free cookbook transforms more than 100 favorite comfort foods into gluten-free delights, including jelly donuts, chicken and dumplings, red velvet cupcakes, challah and more. These sweet and savory treats boast the same taste, texture and appearance as their gluten-base inspiration, and some – like the lemon-raspberry pop tart – are even better than the original.
The cookbook is divided by each of Blackbird Bakery’s six gluten-free flour blends – Biscuit, Donut and Fritter, Pie and Pasta, Bread and Pizza, Cake and Muffin, and Cookie Jar – with each chapter offering easy-to-follow recipes that demonstrate the versatility of the blends and debunk the notion of an "all-purpose" gluten-free flour.
