Hundreds of tasty, nutritious recipes and menus without wheat or gluten.

Who must avoid wheat? People with celiac disease, who are unable to tolerate wheat, and people with food allergies-all in all, an estimated 10 to 15 percent of Americans. Wheat and wheat products are present in some form in almost every processed food product-not just bread, cereal, pasta, and other flour-based products, but also such unexpected items as licorice, cream soups, sauces, condiments, and even some medicines. Managing to eat a healthful diet that completely eliminates this nearly ubiquitous grain can be a real challenge. Written by a leader in the field of cooking for people with food sensitivities, Wheat-Free Recipes makes it possible to enjoy all of your favorite foods without wheat or gluten, including breads, pancakes, waffles, muffins, biscuits, cookies, cakes, casseroles-even pizza.

Having a wheat sensitivity no longer means resigning yourself to dietary boredom or settling for foods with unhealthful levels of fat or salt in an attempt to make up for missing flavor. Dr. Fenster's recipes emphasize fresh, wholesome ingredients and simple, clear instructions that make for easy, fail-proof preparation of mouthwatering meals.

“Carol Fenster, Ph.D., is a recognized expert regarding the gluten-free diet. Once again she has written an outstanding cookbook and guide for patients with celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis and for others who elect to follow the healthy, gluten-free lifestyle.”
—Cynthia S. Rudert, M.D., FACP, medical adviser for the Celiac Disease Foundation and the Gluten Intolerance Group, and medical director for the Gluten Sensitive Support Group of Atlanta
