At last—a cookbook of pleasure, not compromise, for those with food intolerances

Its estimated that nearly 1 in 3 North Americans is lactose-intolerant and that 1 in 133 is gluten-intolerant, 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 soup-to-nuts cookbook full of great food that you can enjoy every day. Barbaras own intolerances, dormant since childhood, returned five years ago, and—as someone who was already intolerant of bad food, ersatz ingredients, and poor cooking—she 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.

Thanks to the creativity of Barbara Kafka, you can say good-bye to the blandest of diets and indulge in such delights as Chicken with Chervil Sauce, Roasted Salmon with Dill Sauce, Cannellini and Mushroom Soup, Corn Relish, and Asian Noodle Salad. The Intolerant Gourmet contains an enormous range of dishes that fit into many cherished culinary traditions (Asian, French, American, Italian, etc.). Each delicious recipe will satisfy anyone at the dinner table, whether intolerant or not.

The book also features tools such as a guide to gluten-free pastas and a comprehensive section on starches—their assets and detriments, the basic methods for preparing them, and the best ways of serving them. All is presented with insight and irrepressible wit (of her Simple Rib Roast, for instance, Barbara writes ,“My roast is rare, but no Saxon pillage”). The result is an indispensable reference tool, ideal for lovers of good food in search of an all-inclusive approach to cooking.

Synopsis:

A necessary cookbook for anyone unwilling to let theirintolerances get in the way of a lifetime of pleasure at the table

Gluten and lactose intolerance can come and go at any age, and no one really knows what triggers it. The number of the gluten intolerant has increased tenfold in recent years, and 60 percent of the population cannot fully digest dairy (lactose). The symptoms of bestselling cookbook author Barbara Kafka’s intolerances were absent for most of her adulthood, only to return five years ago. And that’s why this James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award recipient created this indispensable cookbook for lovers of good food in search of a gluten- and lactose-free approach to cooking. There are 300 recipes, not a single one of which is a compromise; they get you to crispy without resorting to breading and flour coatings; offer silkiness and richness without dairy; and feature luxurious textures in sauces and soups without flour or butter. In many cases this has meant the rethinking or reformulating of classic recipes, while others are entirely new inventions. Like all of Barbara Kafka’s books, The Intolerant Gourmet is destined to become dog-eared, spattered, and loved.

About the Author

Few have done more to define how Americans prepare food than Barbara Kafka, whose IACP and James Beard award-winning books Roasting and Microwave Gourmet made two underutilized techniques central to everyday cooking. Ms. Kafka is a former food editor of Vogue and a frequent contributor to The New York Times. She lives in New York and Vermont. The author of Artisan's Soup: A Way of Life and Vegetable Love, Barbara Kafka's immense achievements were recognized once more in 2007, when the James Beard Foundation gave her its Lifetime Achievement Award. Her most recent book is The Intolerant Gourmet: Glorious Food Without Gluten & Lactose.

Since my son's diagnosis of autism three years ago when he was three and my fortuitous discussion with another parent whose child was diagnosed "on the spectrum" who recommended the GFCF diet, glutten-free/cassin-free diet, this dietary change enhanced our lives....

We promptly instituted the GFCF diet as I, his mother, had observed not only his habitual lethargy but, too, excessive phlegm which hindered my son's ability to articulate.

After a couple weeks into this dietary change, we noticed an increase in his energy and the absence of phlegm resulting in clearer communication.

With having had such a slow start in life after having had muted physical stimulation, my son now enjoys foods with flavor which this cookbook is sure to offer!
