In this superb recipe collection, Sue Shepherd proves that having a dietary condition, such as dairy, gluten or lactose intolerance, celiac disease, fructose malabsorption, or irritable bowel syndrome, does not mean having to miss out on the delights and adventures of a good food life. Sue, a dietician with gourmet tastes and the skills to match, shows her readers how to use the correct ingredients to create food that is complex, diverse, and deliciously tasty, without compromising on specific dietary requirements. Sue provides expert information on the various conditions and their symptoms, notes on suitable ingredients and where to get them, and plenty of fast, fun food ideas for busy families. Fueled by her absolute belief that a dietary condition is an invitation rather than an obstacle to good eating, Sue encourages her readers to search for the healthiest produce, cook creatively, and eat with an appreciation of the enduring pleasures of the table.
