Bestselling educational writer Clare Constant has teamed up with former Home Economist of the Year and Cordon Bleu trained Suzanne Wood to produce this Family Cookbook.
'My toddler, Sophie, is allergic to dairy, wheat, soya, fish and nuts. When she was diagnosed I longed for a cookbook to help her thrive and me, a working mum, to survive. There wasn't one, so I wrote one.' Clare Constant
'We have food allergies in our family but my kids demand to be fed "normal food" like their school friends - so I developed these recipes to make sure they can. Now, when their mates come home for tea, they can't tell the difference!' Suzanne Wood
'... the author's offer very practical, ingenious and creative solutions for the preparation of nutritious, healthy and tasty meals, while staying away from the various types of foods that allergic members of the family should avoid.' Dr Diab F Haddad MD MRCPCH Consultant Paediatrician St Peter's Hospital, Surrey.

The title refected my family's allergy situation, so I thought that this cookbook would be great. Very disappointed. The food is for a British family. What is '150g of digestive biscuits' or '250ml Fruits of the Forest soya yoghurt'? The oven temp is shown as '180C/375F/Gas Mark 5', so I can understand that. The "Useful information" section at the beginning of the book is the only part of the book that was ok for me. No photos at all, except for the cute girl on the cover. And the quality of the book is also bad, several pages were not attached to the spine and fell-out as I turned the pages.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
