Meet the Author

Danna Korn is also the author of Living Gluten-Free For Dummies, Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy, Gluten-Free Living, and Kids with Celiac Disease: A Family Guide to Raising Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Children. Respected as one of the leading authorities on the gluten-free diet and the medical conditions that benefit from it, she speaks frequently to health care professionals, celiacs, parents of celiacs, parents of autistic kids involved in a gluten-free/casein-free dietary intervention program, and others on or considering a gluten-free diet. She has been invited twice to be a presenter at the International Symposium on Celiac Disease.
Danna has been researching celiac disease since her son, Tyler, was diagnosed with the condition in 1991. That same year, she founded R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), a support group for families of children on a glutenfree diet. Today, Danna leads more than 100 chapters of R.O.C.K. worldwide. She is a consultant to retailers, manufacturers, testing companies, dietitians, nutritionists, and people newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance and celiac disease. She also coordinates the International Walk/Run for Celiac Disease each May in San Diego.

Connie Sarros is a pioneer in writing gluten-free cookbooks for celiacs, beginning at a time when few people had even heard of the disease. She has written five cookbooks, a “Newly Diagnosed Survivial Kit,” and made a DVD that covers all you need to know about gluten-free cooking. She writes weekly menus for people with additional dietary restrictions and puts out two monthly newsletters. Connie is also a staff writer for other celiac newsletters, including having a monthly “Ask the Cook” column.
In addition to being a featured speaker at national celiac conferences, Connie travels the country speaking to celiac and austistic support groups and often meets with dietitians to explain the gluten-free diet.

I have Fibromyalgia and this book was VERY helpful. I had a flare-up for two (2) days and I contacted my massage therapist and she told me to stop eating Gluten. That was a VERY helpful tool. I now do NOT eat anything with gluten and I am feeling much better. This book has helped me tremendously. I also received as a gift the book "Fibromyalgia for Dummies" and that also is very informative.

Bought this book almost 2 years ago when I went Gluten Free. It's got a lot of information on being gluten free. Have tried many of the recipes, and they are delicious.

This book was very informative about living gluten-free and answered alot of questions about how to incorporate gluten-free living into your lifestyle. The only thing that irked me is that she keeps referring to her other book that she wants you to buy. It seems that she does this in practically every chapter. That is my only complaint.

I really gained a lot of useful information & what I am trying now is helping my 50 year digestive problems. Danna Korn has a very enjoyable, easy to read writing style. I have spread the word about being gluten-free & think through this book & recent experience this is something that everyone should apply to their eating habits. Many grocery stores are now carrying gluten-free products, so that it is not a problem cooking gluten-free.

I had high hopes for a book like this. The information was helpful, however, the recipes were TERRIBLE!!! I made the caramel cake and my husband said it tasted like I added soap to the dish. I do know how to cook and after about 10 recipes I tried, I tossed the book quickly. If you want it for the information than great just don't try the recipes!!!
