Love to bake? On a special diet or have family members with food allergies? Millions of Americans with dietary restrictions feel deprived daily as they forgo delicious baked goods due to hidden allergens. But things are looking up --- help has finally arrived. BAKE DELICIOUSLY! Gluten and Dairy Free Cookbook by Jean Duane, Alternative Cook, shows at-home cooks how to make more than 150 beautiful baked items without gluten, dairy (GFCF) and other common allergens.
This must-have cookbook is for anyone following a special diet. Inside Ms. Duane shows readers how to make appetizing cakes, muffins, quick breads, truffles, cookies, soufflés, crackers, desserts, snacks, breakfast treats, tarts, pies and crisps. In addition to the easy-to-follow recipes, most of which can be completed in five steps or less, the book also features hundreds of mouth-watering photos as well as notes on what happens in a recipe when one ingredient is changed. Those with Celiac disease, gluten or dairy intolerance, food allergies, Autism, ADD, Crohn's disease, asthma, IBS, ADHD, Aspergers or those looking for a healthier approach to baking will find the book especially useful.
Jean Duane knows first-hand what it is like to live with food intolerances. Early in life, she discovered she was dairy intolerant. In mid-life, she learned she was gluten intolerant and embarked on a journey that required her to totally change the way she cooked, ate and lived. She maintains a gluten-free, dairy-free, low cholesterol diet, and has been developing alternative recipes for 20 years.
Jean is passionate about cooking and baking! Her mission in life is to teach others that "living without" doesn't mean having to give up eating delicious foods. Yes, you can have it all and still be GFCF. She focuses on using healthy, whole unprocessed foods including beans, grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts and of course, chocolate. Jean shares how to prepare fun and easy meals and baked goods with alternative ingredients the whole family can enjoy - foods that rival those made with traditional ingredients.
Specific education includes an MBA from the University of Colorado emphasizing finance and marketing; certification from Achieve Global and completion of certification classes at the Project Management Institute; certification as a Home Cook from the School of Natural Cookery.
