According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) eleven million Americans have food allergies. Another three million have celiac disease, which means total avoidance of gluten, a protein in wheat and related grains. To make life more complicated, many people react to more than one food.
Carol Fenster, one of the nation's leading culinary experts on cooking without major food allergens, eliminates three of the top eight food culprits - gluten, dairy, and eggs - and makes it possible for these folks to resume eating their favorite foods by using alternative ingredients instead.
An extensive appendix lists mail-order sources, associations that assist people with food sensitivities, how to set up a gluten-free pantry; and how to modify one's personal recipes to exclude gluten, dairy, eggs, or refined sugar.
Ideal for the following diets or lifestyles:
- Celiac disease
- Food allergies and intolerances
- Autism (gluten-free, casein-free diet)
- Auto-immune diseases (e.g., multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus)

Because so many of the 6 to 7 million Americans with food allergies have sensitivities to more than just one food, Fenster has created dishes that remove five of the most common allergens-gluten, dairy, eggs, and sugar-providing one book full of delicious recipes for you and your entire family, no matter what your individual dietary needs.
Complete with tips on cooking without traditional ingredients and conversion tables that will show you how to substitute alternative ingredients in your own recipes, this book can help keep you healthy while allowing you to indulge in delectable breads, entrées, and desserts.
