Introduction by Elaine Monarch, president and founder of the Celiac Disease Foundation
Unable to digest gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains, people with celiac disease resign themselves to life without bread or pasta, not to mention cheese souffli, lasagna, chicken pot pie, pancakes, chocolate gbteau, and panzanella. But now, with "Healthy Gluten-Free Cooking", all of these once-taboo foods, and many more, are available to the estimated two million Americans with this incurable condition.
Here Darina Allen, founder of Ireland's renowned Ballymaloe Cookery School, and Rosemary Kearney, a nutrition expert who has celiac disease, present delicious, gluten-free transformations of 157 recipes from appetizers and salads to main courses and desserts, including Irish soda bread, fritters, scones, pork en croute, and Yorkshire pudding. Also featured is essential advice on selecting gluten-free ingredients. In this book the authors achieve the ultimate in healthy cooking: a cuisine for a special need that is sensational enough for everyone to enjoy.
