Caroline asks if you need to be a professional recipe developer to convert recipes to gluten-free and what’s my favorite way to read a recipe?
Nope. You do not have to be a professional recipe developer to convert recipes to gluten-free. But you do have to embrace these qualities:
sense of humor
the ability to cope with total failure
the ability to cope with obsessive need to get it right
lots of dirty utensils and baking sheets
not to worry about what anything looks like, but how it tastes
have a whole lot of fun
some ability to skim a recipe (see below)
However, that said. About reading recipes – I have a confession.
