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.
