Homemade Pasta is Hot Right Now


If the recent pasta-making masterclasses on MasterChef left you wanting more, the newly released Goodness Me It's Gluten Free PASTA cookbook, from Gourmand Award winning author Vanessa Hudson, delivers just that. Covering pasta making basics and beyond with 24 shapes, 18 flavours and 100 recipes, this cookbook will take you on a culinary pasta making adventure that will have you turning out your own masterful pasta creations in no time.

Armed with little more than a rolling pin and a few easy to find ingredients, this cookbook makes it possible to master the art of fresh homemade pasta. The easy step by step instructions and stunning photography ensure each recipe's success. There are the everyday feed-a-family-fast recipes you would expect, as well as many to excite discerning palates and entertainers alike.

Vanessa says "In this cookbook I have embraced the Mediterranean way of using the freshest, best quality (not necessarily expensive) ingredients and that is reflected in the recipes which often only incorporate a few key ingredients, thus letting each one truly shine and impart its unique flavour and texture to the dish."

Homemade egg pasta is full bodied, packed with protein and complex carbohydrates and has a lower GI index than mass produced pasta and other starchy carbohydrates. Combine that with a nutritious sauce and it's a true power packed, healthy, fast food. Gluten free or not, this cookbook is worth a look.
