Library Journal

With a diagnosis of celiac disease comes one large don't: don't eat gluten, which means no more bread, baked goods, or beer. But living gluten-free isn't as easy as just avoiding a few trigger foods. Gluten is everywhere, often hiding in processed foods and in places one might not think to look. Ahern has been blogging since 2004 about living gluten-free on her popular, award-winning food blog, Gluten-Free Girl. Now her story makes the transition to book, and it's a successful venture that centers on the idea of what it takes to love food while living with food restrictions. Readers with or without celiac disease will appreciate the recipes, advice, and inspiration for eating well. After all, "everyone deserves good food." Part food memoir and part how-to, Ahern's story traces her journey from processed-food-fed child to gluten-free gourmet after her celiac diagnosis. Engaging and passionate, this book will make everyone who reads it remember the pleasure of food. Highly recommended for public libraries.
