How to Cook for Food Allergies, 19 Nov 2007
At last, a recipe book for people with food allergies (and as the book includes gluten it can also be used by people with coeliac disease) that can be trusted. Until now people with true food allergies have had to make do with recipes written, not with allergies in mind, but rather for fad diets, for intolerances and often using obscure ingredients.
The book provides you with a scientific understanding of how and why your particular allergen is required in cooking. Then through an inspired labelling system you are guided on how to substitute the relevant allergen to create beautiful 'danger-free' meals.
As a doctor and mother of children with proven food allergies to a variety of foodstuffs I am thrilled to have this book on my kitchen shelf. Since buying How to Cook for Food Allergies we have had several family baking sessions with wonderful results.
This is a great reference text as well as a lovely recipe book. Educational and empowering.
