The Allergen-Free Baker's Handbook, Holiday Baking



Perfect for holiday allergen-free baking is a new book, from another allergic girl and colleague, Cybele Pascal, The Allergen-free Baker's Handbook. Disclosure: I gave her a blurb and really enjoyed the book. Press release below from Cybele.

***

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

My new cookbook, The Allergen-free Baker's Handbook (Random House/Ten Speed) is now available for pre-order on Amazon.

This comprehensive baking guide is free of all top 8 allergens, as well as gluten and sesame. In addition to being a fabulous resource for those with food allergies and sensitivities, it's also a great looking coffee table book and makes a fantastic gift! You can order it now for the holidays and ensure a Christmas delivery by selecting 1 day shipping at checkout. (It's only $3.99 for 1 day shipping if you sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime, which can always be canceled!)

Early Reviews:

“Few allergen-free cookbooks address the reader with the same grace, compassion, humor, and understanding of their core audience that Cybele Pascal’s does. With smart, easy-to-make, and beautifully pictured recipes, Cybele makes ‘luscious,’ ‘delectable,’ and ‘mouthwatering’ the new allergen-free baking buzzwords. Keep The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook in your kitchen for constant reference, and get your crumble on!”
Sloane Miller, president of Allergic Girl Resources


The Allergen-Free Bakers Handbook: How to Bake Without Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, and Sesame. "Using her Gluten-Free Flour Mix-a combination of Authentic Foods superfine brown rice flour (worth its weight in gold), potato starch and tapioca flour-author Pascal (The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook) offers baked treats for the 25 million Americans suffering from food allergies. With a well-stocked pantry, readers will be able once again to enjoy favorites like gingerbread, chocolate chip cookies, pizza, and brownies without fear of a reaction. Those without allergies can also benefit from Pascal's collection-100 dishes, in fact, are suitable for vegans. Though recipes call for more ingredients than bakers are probably used to-dairy-free, soy-free vegetable shortening, agave nectar, and xanthan gum make frequent appearances-Pascal's sage advice on substitutions (applesauce in lieu of eggs, canola oil for butter, rice milk for cow's, etc.) should relieve some of the sticker shock. For sensitive diners and those who cook for them, Pascal's winning collection deserves a look. (Jan.)" --Publishers Weekly


AVAILABLE ON AMAZON DECEMBER 22ND, IN ALL MAJOR BOOKSTORES JANUARY 1ST!


Happy Holidays!

I am SO EXCITED about this book! I can't wait to get it and try it for JB. We have lots of recipes that we can alter for him but w/ his allergies to eggs, nuts and dairy, some just aren't doable.

It really is awful that so many people have food allergies, but so many products are becoming more mainstream it's easier for those of us w/ allergies or w/ loved ones.

I can remember one allergy book I wanted, out of print that was going for over $100 on Amazon! yikes!

I can attest to the yummy recipes in the this book. I attended a Celiac Support Holiday Cookie exchange over the weekend to present my company to the group. Two of the members had made cookies from it...and they were awesome. It is on my list of must buys. Thanks for all your posts. I have added your link to my references pages so my customers can enjoy your information as well.
Happy Holidays,

Ok we have the book, though we haven't tried anything yet--but the day it came, my son kissed the book and made me read him every recipe and show him every picture LOL I'd say he's happy!
