Press and Mentions


Nicole Spiridakis has accomplished a feat of culinary legerdemain with this cookbook. – thekitchn

In short, this is a dream dessert cookbook for folks who are gluten-free, yes, but also for anyone who just likes good food. –

The book may tout its gluten-free sweets, Spiridakis says, but it’s a book for everyone, and most of the recipes are infinitely adaptable. – Bay Area News Group/The San Jose Mercury News

The book promises scrumptiously decadent desserts, dietary restrictions be damned. Choices like traditional flourless chocolate cake with hazelnuts and salted caramel sauce, buttermilk panna cotta, and honey-glazed figs with coffee ice cream don’t need qualifiers. –

Double chocolate browniescheesecake, and ‘the most sublime recipe you will ever try‘ – featured on

The recipes are something you would eat even if you, like cantankerous old me, won’t touch (and would certainly never attempt to make) vegan-gluten-free chocolate chip cookies, because I really like butter and wheat in my chocolate chip cookies, thankyouverymuch. – Sarah at Casa Yellow

The thing I love about Flourless is that the recipes are all gluten-free but don’t rely on gums or binders, instead using nut meals / nut flours and fluffy egg whites. – Megan at A Sweet Spoonful

The book is brilliant and fit for every kitchen, whether you ascribe to a GF diet or not. – Melissa at The Faux Martha

This is another gluten-free cookbook that works well in my kitchen- Nicole shies away from hard-to-find ingredients and focuses on ground nuts, egg whites, fresh fruit, and chocolate. It’s a beautiful book. – Sarah at Vanilla Bean Blog

Double Chocolate Brownies from ‘Flourless.’ – Kasey at Turn Table Kitchen
