Local Gluten-Free Cookbook Author and Chef Karen Morgan Holds Book Signing at BookPeople

AUSTIN, TX (Sept. 3, 2014) – Karen Morgan, founder and chef of Blackbird Bakery, today announced the debut and signing of her latest gluten-free cookbook: The Everyday Art of Gluten-Free, published by Abrams, at BookPeople on Sept. 8, 2014.

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.
