1.0 out of 5 stars Lazy alternatives for dairy allergies, 18 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Allergy-Free Cookbook (Hardcover)
I bought this some time ago when trying to devise a menu for my dairy and egg allergic child. What a waste of money. The dairy free alternatives given generally suggest the soya alternative, eg soya milk or soya cheese. Well, soya milk is OK to cook with, but not great, and goes particularly grainy when frozen. But the dishes that involve cheese (and there are a lot of them) simply suggest a soya cheese replacement. Anyone who has tried soya cheese will know that this is no alternative at all - most are pretty foul, and even those that are vaguely palatable don't cook in the same way as normal cheese.

I was hoping for some interesting new recipes - if its just a case of using normal recipes and substituting a (disgusting) soya alternative, well, dur, why do I need this book? Don't bother...

If you want baking alternatives for dairy/egg allergies, check out the many good vegan cookbooks available.

I have to agree. Particularly frustrating that this book relies to heavily on Soya as children with Milk allergies are often allergic to Soya too. Most unhelpful.
