Here are some things that inspiring people have said about my book:
“Small plates and space to mingle are hallmarks of blogger Aran Goyoaga, who seamlessly makes the old world new again (and gluten free) in the sunny warmth of Florida” (Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food )
“Her recipes have a true baker-from-birth quality with gluten-free as a major bonus. Her blog, besides being an incredibly useful source of recipes, is also beautifully executed.” (Gwyneth Paltrow, on GOOP )
“I found myself brushing my fingers over Aran’s photographs, smiling as I read the stories of her Basque childhood, and nodding as I studied her good tips, and I bet you will too. Then I bet you’ll cook – happily, heartily, healthfully, and daily. Aran’s recipes are fresh and bright and her food is simple and vibrant. It’s just what we want the year round.” (Dorie Greenspan, author of Around My French Table )
“Aran’s unique sensibility rings clear throughout this book, from her heartfelt, attractive cooking to her beautifully styled photography. Lovely all the way around.” (Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day: Well-loved Recipes from My Natural Foods Kitchen )
“Aran makes beautiful food that is meant to be shared with family and friends. That it is all gluten-free is a boon for people like me, but this is food for everyone. Peruse the pages of Small Plates and Sweet Treats and you will fall in love with this book.” (Shauna James Ahern, author of Gluten-free Girl )
Today is a big day for me — the day I can share with you a little bit of what I have been working on for the last 18 months. I am so excited to be able to share some images from inside the book…
“Small Plates and Sweet Treats: My Family’s Journey To Gluten-Free Cooking”
Lots of labor and lots of love have gone into the making of this book and I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek.
The official release date is October 23, 2012.
There are 120 naturally gluten-free recipes inside the book. Recipes and stories inspired by my childhood in the Basque Country, motherhood, and living as an ex-pat. The book is divided by seasons, as I like to cook in our everyday life, and within each chapter you will find a section for small plates and another for sweet treats.
Small plates as an homage to the raciones and pintxos we eat in the Basque Country when we share with friends — just like I share with you.
Let me know what you think. I’d really love to hear your thoughts… It feels great to share.
And soon, I will share some recipes from inside the book.
