We bought a new gluten-free cookbook for the department. Its focus is baking. One of the RDs has tried out quite a few of the recipes and tested them with her children and family friends.
The products all had rave reviews. It also contains useful information on the various gluten-free flours.
Gems of Gluten Free Baking – Breads and Irresistible Treats Everyone Can Enjoy.
Author: Wendy Turnbull.
2nd Edition 2010. Whitecap Books

It is a Canadian book and I bought it at Mosaic books.
Here is the write-up from their website: :
Those who suffer from a gluten intolerance often miss out on the delicious baked goods most people get to enjoy. In her first book, Gems of Gluten-Free Baking, former nurse and baker Wendy Turnbull unlocks the secret to baking all your favourite treats while still keeping a gluten-free diet—by using a carefully selected and balanced blend she calls GEMS Flour, a formula she reveals in this book. This blend of whole grain gluten-free flours holds many of the same properties as found in wheat flour. Breads are tasty, have great texture, slice without crumbling, and stay remarkably fresh.
By using GEMS Flour in her recipes, Wendy has transformed gluten-free baking into an endless array of possibilities. From quick breads and muffins, to cookies, bars, cakes, and pies, Gems of Gluten-Free Baking guarantees that those with a gluten intolerance will never long for their favourite baked goods again. With instructions to create your own GEMS Flour as well as tested, easy-to-follow recipes, this book is the must-have guide for anyone who wants to still enjoy baking and keep it gluten-free.
