People suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and coeliac disease are not being 'fussy eaters'-they have a medical condition that requires them to avoid certain foods. However, this shouldn't mean that they miss out on the fun of cooking or the enjoyment of eating in a restaurant. Nor does it mean they have to eat the same old thing everyday. Spencer Clements uses his chef's knowledge to create superb recipes for everyone-from the home cook to the restaurant chef-recipes that not only meet the criteria of being gluten-free and suitable for IBS sufferers but recipes you wouldn't be surprised to see on the tables of top restaurants around the world. Spencer lectures at TAFE in Australia and his recipes are easy to follow and full of helpful tips. This is not a cookbook that patronises the reader; the recipes are of a high standard and show that going gluten-free doesn't have to mean compromising on the taste or richness of one of life's pleasures-eating.
