Its estimated that nearly 1 in 3 North Americans is lactoseintolerant and that 1 in 133 is glutenntolerant, although many of these people remain undiagnosed. For those who do find out, the resulting dietary adjustments have traditionally been about restriction, denial, and deprivation. All these compromises drain the pleasure from eating.
Now, legendary food maven Barbara Kafka comes to the rescue with a complete souptonuts cookbook full of great food that you can enjoy every day. Barbaras own intolerances, dormant since childhood, returned five years ago, andas someone who was already intolerant of bad food, ersatz ingredients, and poor cookingshe rose to the challenge of being gluten- and lactose-intolerant with this collection of 300 recipes. They get you to crispy without resorting to breading or flour coatings, offer silkiness and richness without dairy, and feature luxurious textures in sauces and soups without flour or butter.
The book also features tools such as a guide to glutenfree pastas and a comprehensive section on starchestheir assets and detriments, the basic methods for preparing them, and the best ways of serving them.
