Product Description

About the Author

Pippa Kendrick is a food writer and cook whose allergy-friendly recipes and advice on food intolerance has earned her a growing following through her successful website, www.theintolerantgourmet.com.
While at university, Pippa became seriously ill with complications that stemmed from undiagnosed food allergies. It became a life-threatening situation and was a turning point in her life. Unable to find the information she needed and driven by a love of good food, Pippa began The Intolerant Gourmet. She now consults for leading supermarkets, contributes on online and print magazines and associations, and regularly posts original recipes and product reviews on her website.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a very attractive cookery book. It is hard back and has been printed on good quality paper. The photographs are also good quality although there is not a photograph of every recipe. This is a shame as I always feel that a good photo will tempt you to try a recipe. It is always helpful to see the finished product. There were some photographs which I felt were a bit pointless, for example, photos of rain on a window or grass blowing in the breeze. I would have preferred photos of the recipes instead of these.

The book is aimed at people who suffer from an intolerance or an allergy to certain foods. All of the recipes are free from wheat, dairy products, soya, eggs and yeast and almost entirely free from gluten. It is, therefore, a recipe book which will be considerably useful to many people. Apart from the recipes there is also a lot of valuable information about food intolerance generally and about products which can be substituted for those which cause the problem.

There are a wide range of recipes in the book including starters, main courses, desserts plus a section on bread. The recipes can all be enjoyed by anyone - you don't have to have an intolerance or allergy to enjoy them. I also liked the fact that the recipes were accessible, in that you feel that they are all within your reach - you don't have to be a super cook to attempt them. There are so many cookery books where the recipes are so elaborate or complex that they seem beyond the capabilities of an ordinary home cook. This book does not fall into that trap.

The recipes are set out in what I felt was a slightly odd manner - they are listed under the seasons so there are recipes for spring, summer, autumn and winter.

Please, Please read from page 14 onwards where Pippa descirbes a list of fundamental flours/ingredients that are gluten free. She includes Rye flour and IT IS NOT GLUTEN FREE. If someone was recently diagnosed & didn't bother to read the foreward & skipped straight to the menu's they would mistakenly believe they were safe!!

The EDITOR NEEDS TO FIX THIS.

Pippa does caveat putting it down by saying it's not "entirely" gluten free but er.......yeah, she's right because it's not gluten free at all so why even bother putting it on the gluten free list!??

It's a completely irresponsible & confusing message to send esp. for those who have been just diagnosed with Coeliac Disease & not yet familiar with all the do's & don'ts. It took me ages after being diagnosed until I learned & I still haven't gotten it down pat and I was diagnosed 7 years ago. I suffer horribly when I eat gluten and I keep to my diet as religiously as humanly possible.

If you are Coeliac you CANNOT have Rye flour full stop. You cannot have anything that contains wheat, barley, rye or malt & really, if you're super religious about it....stay away from Oats as well because they are still unsure to this day.

The whole point of Pippa narrowing down the list of what you can have, is because as she rightly says, it's "overwhelming" when one is diagnosed with a food allergy or auto-immune disease like Coeliac so to put it on the actual gluten free list makes absolutely no sense.

Now, for the recipes in this book that call for Rye flour (i.e. Sourdough Bread), I would just use 'Chickpea Flour' which is a wonderful flour to subsititue when any recipe calls for 'All Purpose Flour' and just use 'Gluten Free Xanthan Gum' which is a thickening agent.

This is a beautifully produced cook book with lots of colour photos of the dishes included. Recipes are varied and so many of them in one book represents good value. Old favourites are re-imagined for the allergy prone and there are great bread recipes. Recipes for beginner and experienced cooks, this is a must have cook book for anyone not just those with allergies.

I brought this book as a close friend has allergies and I feel terrible if I can't cook for her when she comes over. I found that this book has some truly wonderful recipes, so I can cook just one meal when she comes over, and my boyfriend eats it without knowing there is anything missing. Now that is successful allergy cooking, when you can't actually tell its missing anything! Its a stunning book, with so many recipes, I can't wait to try more....I would recommend this book for people who have allergies and those without, good food is good food!

Format: Hardcover
This is a book of excellent recipes let down by a lack of rigour towards the intolerance of the gourmets for whom it is written. This is especially noticable in its attitude to those with gluten intolerance. In its list of gluten-free flours it includes rye flour. There is the caveat that rye flour is "not entirely gluten-free"-i.e. is not gluten-free. This being the case why include it in the list? Not everyone reads every word in a book and although coeliacs should know that rye flour is not gluten-free their friends and relations using the book to prepare them a meal might not.
Recipes containing nuts containing nuts are labelled as such, those containing gluten are not. For instance the recipe for a crusty white loaf lists in its ingredients gluten-free flour but does not specify that the baking powder should be gluten-free if the loaf is for someone with gluten intolerance.
Throughout the book there is no use of eggs: egg replacers are used throughout. Many of the readers will not have an intolerance to eggs and it would have been helpful if the number of eggs required was included.
The recipes are terrific and very easy to follow.
