The Food Allergy Cookbook by Carmel Nelson and Amra Ibrisimovic
School friends Carmel and Amra come from ethnic backgrounds where food is hugely important as 'an expression of love, caring, respect, and family' so finding themselves with serious food allergies which forced them to refuse the lovingly prepared and time-honoured dishes was distressing and difficult. Months and years of honing their own allergen-free recipes (Amra cannot tolerate wheat, barley, dairy, soy, or corn, Carmel cannot tolerate dairy, wheat, oats and barley) and working out strategies for eating out without offending family or friends or giving themselves an allergic reaction, finally gelled into a decision to commit their joint experiences to paper ? and resulted in their Food Allergy Cookbook.
A very helpful introduction tells their stories and gives lots of useful advice on dealing with food allergies in social situations and when travelling. This is followed by a great selection of recipes – both Amra's traditional Bosnian dishes and many classical American favourites. And all, obviously, wheat, barley, corn, soya, oats and dairy free!
The book is not available in the UK yet but you can buy from Amazon at the very modest price of $13.78 (well under £10) so, even with postage, it will be quite cheap.
