“The Dairy-Free and Gluten-Free Kitchen” by Denise Jardine
I love cook books, especially those concerning individuals following a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. It should be no surprise that I after receiving a copy of “The Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Kitchen” by Denise Jardine in the mail, I was excited to make almost all of her recipes.
The beginning of this book is filled with information about gluten intolerance and dairy sensitivity, as well as a “Stop! May Contain Gluten” section on various common kitchen ingredients. Since many people with gluten intolerance may also be sensitive or allergic to lactose, this cook book is important for many people on this level.
My favorite recipe would probably have to be the gluten-free pizza recipe: Rustic Heirloom Pesto Pizza. Delicious. For those not concerned with eating grain-free, using the recipe for the gluten-free pizza crust will appeal to almost anyone. I do have to say that it’s hard to choose a favorite recipe, as there are far too many.
Breakfasts, snacks, salads, desserts, meat, seafood and vegetarian meals are all contained in this cookbook that contains 150 delicious gluten-free recipes. Coconut ice cream is probably my favorite dessert recipe in “The Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Kitchen“, as is the flourless chocolate cake, which I will post in the next few days.
Pick up this book tomorrow, January 3rd, 2012 when it hits shelves, OR order your copy to be shipped to you immediately. It’s a great read for the beginning of a new year!
