Who needs grains when they have Danielle Walker? Chances are that most cooks are faced with the challenge of cooking for someone who chooses, or must, because of health reasons, to eat grain free or dairy free. Others follow the popular Paleo recommendations. Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations: A Year of Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Paleo Recipes for Every Occasion is the sequel to her bestselling cookbook, Against All Grains, and includes mouthwatering recipes that are suitable for serving on special occasions and holidays.
Most of the dishes that would traditionally call for wheat or other grain flours include almond flour which is more expensive and harder to find (with the trendy gluten-free bandwagon, however, almond flour and other gluten-free substitutions are now showing up on grocer’s shelves in larger grocery stores, saving a trip to the health food store). However, the dishes do turn out picture-perfect. The pictures in this cookbook, incidentally, are beautiful, and will inspire every cook.
Some of the dishes included are Lavender Lemonade, which is very refreshing, Prosciutto Wrapped Glazed Shrimp, Knife and Fork Ribs, Smoky Candied Bacon Sweet Potatoes, and a Sausage Breakfast Casserole, to name a few. When tested, these dishes were all delicious, and even those who have no problems with gluten or dairy loved them.
The main drawback to cooking for special diets is the fact that there are more steps, more ingredients, and more time required to make dishes that look and taste like their grain and dairy laden counterparts. Walker’s instructions are excellent and easy to follow, but these dishes aren’t quick and easy, for the most part.
This is a beautiful cookbook, and highly recommended for anyone who is willing to put in the extra time and expense into cooking for special diets.
