“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world.”
― William Butler Yeats, “The Second Coming”
Ages ago, when I told my brother that I was going to start blogging about gluten-free cooking, he suggested I call the blog Things Fall Apart. Clever, and absolutely on point. That’s the reality of cooking and baking without gluten—gluten is amazing at helping things stick together. All of the gums or other tricks we use to coerce gluten-less flours to stick together only work so well.
