The explosion of gluten-free and allergy-free foods is exciting and crucial for Celiacs, those with gluten sensitivity, autistic children who benefit from a GFCF diet and many others with food allergies. But it wasn’t always this way. In 2002, Cameo Edwards was living in San Francisco and discovered she was gluten sensitive after two years of stomach pain and misleading diagnoses. Determined to eat the foods she loved once again, she began baking and selling her gluten-free, dairy-free desserts in 2003. Crave seemed like the perfect name for this bakery since her frustrations came from food Cravings in which she could no longer safely indulge. These all-natural, allergy friendly desserts Cameo created finally satisfied her cravings and made her customers happy! 

A casual baker or a full-fledged bakery can easily reproduce these recipes. For bakeries that have been wanting to add gluten-free products to their line but don’t have time to devote to all that experimentation- this book has done the work for you. These are recipes ready for production. They’re precise and tested over years in Crave’s own bakery. 

Praise for Crave’s Cookbook

“With this cookbook, Cameo has done us a tremendous service. She's taken a decade's worth of trial and error with gluten-free baking and presented us with incredible, easy to follow, 'crave-worthy' desserts. There are always special occasions that require a yummy dessert and now you'll know exactly how to achieve fantastic results, even for those not avoiding gluten and dairy! “

“Considering how many people with gluten issues also have dairy issues, it has always surprised me that most gluten-free baked goods contain a lot of dairy. Crave bakery was one of the first gluten-free bakeries to offer dairy-free baked goods that tasted like they were full of butter! Their pretty little lemon tarts are corn-free too. Thank you, Crave, for saving tea time!”

“Cameo is amazing for putting so much goodness into one place! So many bakeries guard their “secret” ingredients, but she has made every amazing recipe from Crave Bakery accessible in this deliciously tempting book.
I knew this cookbook would be love at first bite when it started with the legendary Mama Z’s chocolate cake. But why stop with cake? From frangipane tarts to monster cookies – there is a reason this collection of bakery recipes is called Crave. I’ve heard it so many times, “You’ll never believe it’s gluten-free and dairy-free.” With Crave I finally agree. The recipes for tender cupcakes, chewy cookies, and flaky tarts will easily make my husband forget that he is gluten-free.”

I met Cameo back when gluten-free was still uncharted territory. I had been diagnosed with celiac disease and she had discovered her own gluten sensitivity, so we connected on a personal level. The gluten-free products on the market left much to be desired in terms of quality and taste, but Cameo had created these delicious treats that made me feel as though I wasn't being deprived one bit! She was one of the first to recognize the need for dairy-free in addition to gluten-free, and she cared about the ingredients she put into her recipes. I can't say how many times I grabbed a Monster Cookie (my favorite), but I can say that I didn't share them with anyone!

Following a gluten-free diet can be difficult, but Crave Bakery makes it a little bit easier by creating some childhood favorites that won't make you feel like you are settling.  Their brownies and cookies are sure to please even the pickiest palates.  Jon, my son, is extremely picky and he fell in love with the Monster Cookies - a blondie-type, brownie-like cookie with chocolate chunks.  The brownies are dense and fudgy with no telltale sign of the product being gluten-free.
