Gluten-Free Cookbook on Kickstarter

e2661378a3d07aabd7f330ec04c42906_largeFood blogger Marie Porter hopes to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter for her gluten-free cookbook project.

The finished book, titled Beyond Flour, will contain at least 75 recipes. If this campaign is successful, Porter hopes to release the book by October 2014. Here’s more from about the project:

“Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a ‘normal’ recipe, and attempting to come up with the perfect balance of alternative flours to substitute…I take a bit of a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch, throwing the original methods out the window. Rather than just swapping out the flours, I also look at utilizing other supporting ingredients and different techniques to achieve the perfect end goal…not just a ‘reasonable facsimile.’”
