Cooking Allergy-Free Simple Inspired Meals for Everyone


This book features 150 recipes for all courses, each free of at least one of the most common allergens. Recipes are healthy, delicious and include nutritional data. Easy-to-recognise icons identify which allergies the recipes cater for.

Tackling the big 8 allergens: eggs, soy, nuts, gluten, dairy, shellfish, fish, and corn, Cooking Allergy-Free features 150 recipes for all courses, from starters to mains to desserts.

Each recipe is free of at least one of the 8 allergens  with substitutions included to make the recipe suitable for people with other food allergies. Recipes are tested by a qualified dietician to ensure their accuracy and nutritional data is included.

These recipes are not your standard family fare but instead are healthy gourmet, including Pumpkin Pear Soup with Sunchokes and Herbs, Spicy Cauliflower Fritters, Orange Balsamic Chicken and Flourless Molten Chocolate Cookies.
