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!
