The Allergy-Free Pantry by Collette Martin (The Experiment)
When someone in your family has food allergies, it can be hard to prepare meals and snacks and know what household staples to keep in stock. If you want your kitchen to be a safe zone but aren't sure where to begin, check out The Allergy-Free Pantry. Author Collette Martin, a food allergy mom and advocate, had to find a way to reinvent the way her family ate when her son was diagnosed with multiple food allergies. Backed by a love of baking, Collette was able to transform her kitchen to accommodate the change.
In The Allergy-Free Pantry, readers will learn how to make their own staples, snacks and meals by discovering what safe ingredients and substitutions will work in a safe cooking environment without sacrificing taste. Recipes include how to make your own non-dairy milk, baking without eggs, meatloaf and potpie with mock crust, sauces, cookies, brownies and pudding. $25.50, available where books are sold.
