Book Description

16 Feb 2012

Food writer and cook Pippa Kendrick revolutionises allergy-friendly food with an inspired collection of delicious recipes for everyone to make, share and enjoy – and just happen to be free from wheat, gluten, yeast, egg, dairy and soya.

The Intolerant Gourmet is a cookbook that will appeal to everyone; from those that want delicious food but suffer food allergy or intolerance to those who simply want great home cooking that can be served to all their friends and family no matter what they can or can’t eat.

Each year, more and more people are diagnosed with food intolerance or find that avoiding certain products makes them feel better, happier, and more energetic; but for too long they’ve been forced to have separate meals or go without. Pippa puts an end to this with a cookbook that celebrates great food to be savoured by one and all, and won’t leave anyone feeling unsatisfied.

In this beautifully illustrated book - packed with stunning photographs – you’ll find 120 doable recipes. All are entirely free from wheat, yeast, egg and dairy and almost all entirely free from gluten; but, most importantly, all are delicious.

Pippa offers simple soups, snacks and salads, satisfying main courses including inspired versions of what you might find on a restaurant menu, tasty vegetarian meals and plenty of indulgent desserts and cakes. She also includes tried-and-tested basic recipes for breads, pastry and biscuits.

Pippa’s fresh, inclusive approach to ‘free from’ cooking and her engaging personality shine through to make the recipe book that food intolerants have been crying out for: a beautiful modern-day cookery bible to cherish and share, and to turn to again and again.

Recipes include:
Smoked Chicken, Sweet Potato and Lentil Salad
Falafel with Parsley and Tomato Salad
Lamb Korma with Lemon and Cashew Rice
Tomato Pesto-filled Pork Tenderloin
Lamb Tagine with Dates and Peppers
Spaghetti with Roasted Aubergine, Thyme and Chilli Sauce
Masala Roast Chicken and Squash
Vegetable Lasagne
Bakewell Tart
Treacle Tart with Custard
Jam Tarts
White Soda Bread

4.0 out of 5 stars The Intolerant Gourmet by Pippa Kendrick 21 Mar 2012
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book 4 April 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, but can be misleading 8 Mar 2013
By Micks
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is great idea and does tick most of the boxes. My only comment would be that it states if you have a wheat or dairy intolerance then all the recipes are for you. This assumes you have a dairy lactose allergy and not a dairy protein allergy as dairy proteins are found in pretty much all deli meats such as chorizo, salami & ham and also sausages - all of which are used in the book. So on this point, it was limiting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing....New foodie bible! 28 Feb 2012
By NicolaS
This has quickly become my favourite book within a matter of days. I had trouble deciding what to try first as I wanted to try every single one of the recipes.

Pippa has obviously put a lot of thought and hard work into this book and it has definitely paid off as it is perfect.

It is full of mouth watering photos and easy to follow instructions. It is a must have for allergy sufferers but id also recommend it to people without as it will open your mind into other ways of cooking without dairy, eggs and gluten. They really arent needed!!

You will no longer have to sit and watch other people eating yummy cakes or creamy sauces. You'll be able to make your own and they will taste a whole lot better!!

This is an amazing book with a fantastic array of recipes. My new foodie bible :)

(P.S make sure you make the Lemon Drizzle cake...its been sent down from cakey heaven...its sooooo good)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book even if you don't have allergies 24 Feb 2012
By Helen
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 16 Sep 2012
By Minimoo
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book as my friend is wheat, gluten and dairy intolerant and also a vegetarian - instead of taking her out for an expensive restaurant meal for her birthday I decided to cook her a three course dinner at home. For starters I chose the roasted red pepper and lentil soup. I chose to make my own harissa paste as I had never done so before and I must say, its so simple and tasty I'll not be buying it from a shop again! I added a bit more than the tsp indicated in the recipe because we both like quite spicy food so I wanted it to have an extra kick. The soup was really easy to make and it was rich and full of flavour - and quite a nice colour too :-) I can imagine this being the perfect dish for a cold winters day!

For the main I went with cauliflower and chickpea curry. I chose to use half fat coconut milk rather than normal, as per the recipe, and instead of 300ml I used 400ml as the can was 400ml and I didn't want to waste the leftover 100ml! I don't think I impaired the flavours of the curry in any way by these little changes, the end result was delicious. The recipe makes 4 very generous portions, maybe 6 if you split into lunch sized portions. My meat loving boyfriend also declared it a success!

The grand finale was what I was most nervous about, the carrot cake with lemon fudge icing (just a fancy way of saying lemon icing!). I wasn't convinced of getting a good result, when I spooned out the mixture it was quite watery looking and if I'm honest, there wasn't a lot of it! When I removed the tins from the oven they hadn't really risen much, however, this might be my fault. I've never used egg replacer before and for some reason I totally missed the part in the recipe that said to whisk with water.
