Product Description

Review

Unlike other books that explore the rationale behind a GF/CF diet, this one focuses on recipes. All are excellent owing to their explicit directions and variety. People with all manner of tastes will find something to like. Plus, there's kid appeal. -- Library Journal If you're on a gluten or dairy-free diet and are struggling for innovative meal ideas, try Marilyn Le Breton's Gluten & Dairy-Free Cookbook. -- Disability Now The cookbook has clearly been written with passion and a good deal of insight and practical knowledge and experience of the subject. It is comprehensive and strives to expand what could easily be a potentially restricted diet. I feel it would be a very useful addiction to all dietetic departments and would make a practical resource for a family with an autistic child, following an exclusion diet under medical supervision. -- Dietetics Today Although this book has been compiled for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders on strict casein, gluten, MSG, aspartame and DGA free diets, it contains such a wealth (over 400) of imaginative dairy and gluten/wheat free recipes that it would be invaluable to anyone struggling with a gluten or casein free diet. Including contributions from many parents, the bulk of the recipes come from Marilyn herself or from Barbara Powell or Barbara's kitchen - queen of seriously delicious gluten free baking! An excellent investment for any 'special diet' kitchen. -- The Inside Story

About the Author

Marilyn Le Breton is the mother of two sons, one of whom is autistic and has benefited considerably from a gluten and casein free diet. Allergy induced Autism is a U.K. based charity dedicated to identifying the underlying causes and biochemical effects of autistic spectrum disorders. Since gaining charitable status in 1997, AiA has gone from strength to strength with an explosion in membership. International seminars, presentations and conferences have served to heighten awareness of the condition, providing a platform for medical research and a focal point for scientists, clinicians and parents.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The world of special diets can be daunting especially when there is no room for error as in the case of my own child. Marilyn LeBreton's first book was a significant influence on our lives. This cookbook which is her second book is everything you could ever need for the GFCF way of life.
Recipes donated by professional caterers, parents doing the diet and from Marilyn herself are so many and varied that you could probably use the book to eat for a few months and never repeat the same meals. The range of foods to cook is tremendous. From biscuits and cakes to puddings and desserts with everything in between from meat and fish based to vegetarian.
Besides gluten and casein free, MSG and artificial sweetener free this book can also be used for those with intoerances to egg, soya, tomato, fruit, teast, corn and for those who need a sugar free diet. Every recipe is plainly coded to show how for which diet it is suitable eg YF for yeast free.
There is a table of UK/US cooking terms and suggestions for substituting ingredients eg eggs, dairy, chocolate.
For anyone who simply wants a healthier lifestyle without e-numbers and additives this book is a must. There are not far short of 400 recipes in this cookbook. It is the only cookbook I own without pictures but to be quite honest they are not needed. This food is the normal everyday sort we don't need unneccessary photographs for and anyway the recipes stand out by themselves.
We are in the debt of Marilyn LeBreton and Rosemary Kessick and all at AIA for their love and support and for giving us back our son and my daughter back her brother. All those who knew my son before we implemented this diet cannot believe the child he has become.
When I reviewed her first Diet Intervention and Autism, I said I wished that I could award more than five stars. If I could I would give this book a galaxy of stars.

I have had this book for over a year. It is dirty, creased and full of flour. It follows me around the kitchen every day. If you are contemplating following a gf/cf diet this book is a must. I am forever in its debt. It has given me the person I knew my son could be and his brother someone to look up to instead of avoiding. My son never wants to go back to the way he was. He is a completely different person now. The day I bought this book all our lives turned a corner and we have never looked back.

Format: Paperback
Regardless of your reasons for needing to follow a gluten and casein free diet, this hands on practical proof of the possibilities that can be achieved in the kitchen is an invaluable aid to it's maintenance.

Too often dietary restrictions mean just that, a diet that is limited, dull and uninventive. The mothers (and fathers) who have generously contributed their tried and tested recipes to AiA for inclusion have dispelled that myth with a myriad of practical and tasty family recipes designed to accomodate the most discerning little and not so little critics.
Thoughtfully sectioned with helpful comments and suggestions guiding the cook through what can be a whole new method of using relatively unfamiliar baking ingredients, there is the added benefit of coding to each recipe as a guide to it's suitability if other dietary guidlines are implemented.
There are many who would not only benefit from possessing this book but will turn it's eventual well worn pages with affection for the ease of use it offers in a dietary minefield

This Book has transformed the way I cook and eat - in fact, I didn't actually 'cook' before, I realise that now. I've been on GF diet for 20+ years but recently have become intolerant to yeast and dairy - I was in total dispair - but now, I love spending time in the kitchen and my husband thinks he's died and gone to heaven! It was costly buying in all the various 'flours' at once - and I could only source Potatoe Starch Flour on the web (even our local posh health food store thought that Potatoe Flour was the same as Potatoe Starch Flour - it's not!) - but I have a full stock now and I have not stopped cooking since the day this marvellous book dropped onto the doormat. My grown up son is on low sugar, no yeast and no tomatoe diet but it's no problem! I even bought him a copy. The 'sustitute' section is just great and it all works really well - I love that this is a book full of everyday meals and breads and cakes and biscuits and deserts - I'm learning so much from it. This book is for ANYONE with food intolerances - treat yourself!

a fantastic book chocked full of very useful and easy receipies. all the receipies are easy to follow especially for those not used to cooking on a regular basis.

nb.you will defintely need to invest in an american measure cup. as a lot of the receipies don't convert to uk ml's and fluid 0z's.
