With a culinary degree and health coach certificate under her belt, what Chef Becky brings to the table through her book is both delicious to your palate and nutritious for your body. When she found out several years ago she suffered from gluten and dairy allergies, she made a 180-degree shift from Italian cooking with its bread and cheeses to a gluten- and dairy-free cuisine. In her quest to re-learn how to cook in a nutritious but allergy-friendly way, she started a local cooking class to experiment with ingredients, flavors, tastes, and textures. After more than two years of what became known as "Test Kitchen," she accumulated hundreds of amazing recipes. This book not only promises healthy and delicious meals on the same plate, but also releases the bonds of restriction for those who wrestle with food allergies. Most of these recipes are naturally allergy friendly and each one is gluten and dairy free. When Chef Becky first realized the changes her dietary restrictions would bring, she found it hard to find cookbooks that were both gluten AND dairy free. Substituting and switching ingredients was a daily occurrence. As she shared her vision for creating new recipes with students, clients, and everyone she met, many with food allergies or those trying to eat healthier would request them. It became obvious that a cookbook like this was asking to be written. And so the journey began. After two years of developing healthy, delicious recipes, then testing and tweaking and testing again, here are over 140 of the very best presented for your enjoyment. They are tailored for those with allergies, but anyone will enjoy the balance they offer between nourishment, pleasure, and health, all of which will rekindle your love of cooking and sharing delicious food with others. The best part? Your gluten- and dairy-"full" friends won't believe these recipes are "without", so you can serve them confidently, knowing that everyone at your table will be delighted with the meal set before them. Are you ready to experience the health you were designed to enjoy? Then grab your apron and a cup of tea, and she'll meet you in the kitchen.
