Overview

According to its witty, wise, and gluten-impaired author, "Against the Grain" is about how to save your life and eat happily ever after. It is also the first hip primer on creativity and resourcefulness for the gluten-intolerant and wheat-allergic, and for anyone who feeds them, loves them, and entertains them. Beginning with introductory essays by two eminent gastroenterologists who explore the symptoms, diagnoses, and management of gluten intolerance and wheat allergy, you'll learn things no one ever tells you: how to charm a chef into eating out of your hand, how to avoid cheating and why you should, which airlines are friendly to the gluten-intolerant, how to recognize the culinary terms that spell hidden grains, and how to order a good meal in fifteen languages. Along with a required reading list, Lowell provides a state-of-the-art resource guide that shows the grain-challenged how to contact fast-food chains, support groups, information hot lines, diagnostic clinics, and companies specializing in mail-order and wheat- and gluten-free foods.
