When we hear about “comfort foods”, many of us have distinct, and very personal, ideas of what these foods mean to us. Though each of us may picture something different, this image most likely causes an “ahhh” feeling inside of us. That’s what Elizabeth Gordon’s newest cookbook offers to those with gluten, dairy, soy, nuts, and egg intolerances. The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook brings the ease of enjoying those “ahhh” foods back into our lives.
Her cookbook includes tantalizing recipes for dishes like Shepherd’s Pie, Fried Chicken, Pizza, and Chicken Pot Pie. She shares how to make golden, crispy Onion Rings, and soft and chocolatey Whoopie Pies. And since every recipe is free of these allergens, her dishes truly become the epitome of “comfort food”.
Elizabeth also includes sections on Substitutions and Where to Shop. This information can be very helpful because, as the author shares, “… foods that seems innocuous to one person could be deadly to another.” She notes that sometimes ingredients available in one locale, might not be available in another. By including substitutions and shopping guides, the recipes most likely avail themselves to anyone.
I am excited about The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook, knowing that my adventures in trying to regain those “ahhh” moments in my life can be safe and delicious … and I don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Elizabeth has already done that for me. Be sure to check out this great cookbook. I’m betting it will become a valuable cooking companion in your kitchen.
