Just in time for Rosh Hashanah comes a stunning and sumptuous new cookbook from nutrition and wellness coach and expert, Vicky Pearl. Brooklyn born and bred, Vicky has penned an indispensable collection of gluten-free, dairy-free and kosher recipes. In fact, it’s the first of its kind. Having been a consultant for over 17 years, Vicky has seen firsthand how eating gluten-free and the availability of gluten free products has grown exponentially, from the scarcity of available products 10 years ago to the abundance (sometimes contradictory) of information that now fills the airwaves, the media and, of course, the internet. It has always been her heartfelt desire to help educate her clients and the world at large about how to make the transition to following a gluten-free lifestyle and to help people make educated decisions.
And that is what this wonderful compilation sets out to accomplish, with magnificent results. Vicky’s fabulous recipes are based on the seasons, on freshness and on bringing those you love together around the table, be it a Monday night pasta dish or a more festive holiday repast. From traditional chicken soup with knaidlech to tempting hors d’oeuvres to melt in your mouth gluten-free cookies, Vicky has compiled a delectable collection to suit all occasions.
Vicky is also in the vanguard by offering recipes that are dairy-free, a common accomplice to those who must refrain from eating gluten. But she makes sure you never even notice the difference. Well versed as she is in successful substitutions, Vicky offers love filled recipes, rugelach and latkes perfect for Chanukah, an outstanding Yerushalmi Kugel ideal for Shabbat and treats that will fill the bill anytime of year. The recipes in Gluten Free Goes Gourmet are also 100% kosher, as an added bonus.
Brimming with enthusiasm and tips, comments and make a-heads, Vicky Pearl’s breakthrough book is a must have for anyone who has started or is about to start the journey to a gluten-free lifestyle.
