About the Author

Few have done more to define how Americans prepare food than Barbara Kafka, whose IACP and James Beard award-winning books "Roasting" and "Microwave Gourmet" made two underutilized techniques central to everyday cooking. Ms. Kafka is a former food editor of "Vogue" and a frequent contributor to "The New York Times". She lives in New York and Vermont. The author of Artisan's "Soup: A Way of Life" and "Vegetable Love", Barbara Kafka's immense achievements were recognized once more in 2007, when the James Beard Foundation gave her its Lifetime Achievement Award. Her most recent book is "The Intolerant Gourmet: Glorious Food Without Gluten & Lactose".

HASH(0x95de3960) out of 5 stars What a joy to eat pasta again! 14 Nov. 2011
By YJ Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
To eat without fear and enjoy without sacrifice is a wonderful experience; The Intolerant Gourmet has made both possible. Barbara Kafka truly understands the needs of those who suffer from the inability to cope with gluten and lactose. Every recipe I have tried was easy to follow and the book as a whole is very logically thought-out and organized. The anchovy and garlic pasta and the Venetian rice and peas were especially easy to prepare and delicious. For the first time as a glucose and lactose intolerant home cook, I did not have to make different dishes for different people; no more dividing the recipes and separating ingredients before serving! The tables of descriptions and cooking times for grains and beans in and of themselves are invaluable. This book is a true gift to anyone who enjoys great food, varied fare, imaginative ingredients and dishes at their very best.

HASH(0x95c6d468) out of 5 stars I just got mine and it is beautiful! 22 Nov. 2011
By K. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Since my husband was diagnosed with celiac disease two years ago I have bought a lot of new cookbooks to add to my already large collection. I decided I needed to stop buying new cookbooks! However, when I saw that Barbara Kafka had written a gluten free cookbook I had to make an exception. She is one of my favorite cookbook authors and I have worn out my copies of her other books. This book does not disappoint. I got it today and have been poring over it all evening. So many wonderful sounding recipes to try and as in her other books a lot of excellent cooking advice. Barbara Kafka totally gets how you have to learn to cook in a whole new way but that there are many, many things you can eat and can cook. This is great book and even if you already have too many cookbooks I would recommend buying this one!

HASH(0x95d8f1e0) out of 5 stars I'm a convert 31 Oct. 2011
By Irene Sax - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was a skeptic: I can eat anything, and saw no need for a book like this one. But when I opened The Intolerant Gourmet I was converted. It's not just for allergy-sufferers, but an all-round terrific cookbook. I will definitely make the duck with forbidden rice, the chard and lentil soup and one of the soy-marinated pork shoulders. And if I miss the lactose and gluten I can always eat them with a piece of bread and butter. I'm joking but I'm also serious: this is definitely not just for intolerant gourmets.

HASH(0x961b0b34) out of 5 stars Disaster! 1 Jan. 2013
By Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
My company arrives in 3 hours. I am a foodee, gourmet cook but I am on my second attempt at a dessert from this cookbook, which in both cases I have thrown away. Kafka's picture of the yum yum brownie concoction shows use of parchment paper, but she does write this in her recipe. Hence, despite the use of safflower oil as instructed to oil the pan, the yum yums were impossible to remove the pan intact! The marsala chocolate pudding recipe w/ the 1.5 cups of safflower oil separated from the eggs and never thicken. Down the drain went money, time, food and a lot of frustration. Kafka does not give enough detail to cover when cooking or not cover, to whip eggs whites or not whip. This is an awful cookbook! Get your recipes right Kafka and give more detail!!!!

HASH(0x95c4bce4) out of 5 stars Good for even the omni-tolerant 22 Dec. 2011
By Tiggy Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is surprisingly young and fun. Clara's Peachy Keen Pork Chops are the best recipe by far within the book--incredible! A nice looking book, too! Would be a great gift for any food-lover, especially one who is attempting to avoid gluten & lactose.
