Description

Imagine growing up with a father known for his rich, Creole-style cooking, who instilled a love and appreciation of food from the very start. Now imagine not being able to eat most of his dishes anymore. That's what happened to Jilly and Jessie Lagasse when they were diagnosed with gluten allergies in 2001 and 2004, respectively. So they learned to adjust, changing the ways they cooked, ate, and used ingredients.

The Gluten-Free Table provides a well-balanced base of recipes that can add flavor and enjoyment to the menus of even the most demanding gluten-free eaters. With appetizers, soups, salads, sides, entrees, and desserts, the book has something for everyone.

Featuring family favorites, Southern classics, and a few of Jilly's and Jessie's own culinary anecdotes thrown in, readers will delight in this compendium that includes recipes for Sweet 'n' Sticky Chicken Drumsticks, Hearty Butter Bean and Ham Soup, Jalapeño and Cheddar Cornbread, Slow-Cooked Rosemary Chicken with Apples and Fennel, Maple Syrup Johnnycakes with Ice Cream, and more!


About the Author

Jilly Lagasse's passion for food was apparent from a very early age. Recognizing her natural talent in the kitchen, her father gifted her with a set of Chef's Whites and allowed her to start helping in the Pastry and Dessert Department in one of his restaurants. This led to her assisting him on book tours and cooking events, and even working alongside him on his Emeril's Creole Christmas cookbook. Jilly currently lives in New Orleans and travels back to London every chance she can. An apron is always packed and on hand for cooking in anyone's kitchen she can along the way.

Jessie Lagasse Swanson is the author, with her sister Jilly, of The Gluten-Free Table. Having followed a gluten-free diet since 2001, Jessie has spent countless hours honing her gluten-free recipes and cooking strategies in an effort to always sit down to a delicious and flavorful gluten-free meal. Jessie currently resides in New Orleans with her husband, Steven, and two sons, Jude and John Peter.
