Publishers Description: "Life without wheat takes on a delicious new meaning in this cookbook that uses culinary creativity to solve the biggest lifestyle challenge for those with celiac disease. Chef Darina Allen and nutrition expert Rosemary Kearney, who has celiac, have developed a cuisine for people whose passion for food is severely restricted by a health-impeding resistance to foods containing even a minute amount of gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains.
