Containing over 400 gluten and dairy free recipes, the book will be invaluable to all those whose diet is restricted due to food intolerances. An increasing number of people on the autism spectrum are turning to the gluten and casein free diet and finding that many of the more troublesome symptoms are significantly alleviated. Coeliacs, and those with lactose and other intolerances will also find a wealth of useful ideas for cooking without gluten or dairy products and expanding what may initially seem a very restrictive repertoire of possible meals.

Unlike other books that explore the rationale behind a GF/CF diet, this one focuses on recipes. All are excellent owing to their explicit directions and variety. People with all manner of tastes will find something to like. Plus, there's kid appeal.
If you're on a gluten or dairy-free diet and are struggling for innovative meal ideas, try Marilyn Le Breton's Gluten & Dairy-Free Cookbook.
The cookbook has clearly been written with passion and a good deal of insight and practical knowledge and experience of the subject. It is comprehensive and strives to expand what could easily be a potentially restricted diet. I feel it would be a very useful addiction to all dietetic departments and would make a practical resource for a family with an autistic child, following an exclusion diet under medical supervision.
The Inside Story
Although this book has been compiled for children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders on strict casein, gluten, MSG, aspartame and DGA free diets, it contains such a wealth (over 400) of imaginative dairy and gluten/wheat free recipes that it would be invaluable to anyone struggling with a gluten or casein free diet. Including contributions from many parents, the bulk of the recipes come from Marilyn herself or from Barbara Powell or Barbara's kitchen - queen of seriously delicious gluten free baking! An excellent investment for any 'special diet' kitchen.
