The cover of Amy Fothergill's new cookbook, “The Warm Kitchen,” barely hints at what's inside. There are photos of pasta, bagels, a cupcake and a brownie. It's the subtitle that gives it away: This is a book for people who eat gluten-free. Fothergill is an enthusiastic guide to making gluten-free foods that mimic their with-gluten versions, recipes she devised, she writes, with persistence and with the help of family and friend tasters. It's a journey that began in 2007, when her daughter, at 13 months, developed the skin ailment eczema and the family learned she had many food sensitivities, including to gluten -- a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Fothergill, a cooking instructor and consultant, provides more than recipes.
