When I found out from my doctor that I would never be able to eat gluten again, I was devastated.
I loved bread and pizza. I rejoiced in treating myself to a cupcake or a slice of apple pie. Finding out that I could never let even a crumb of those precious favorites slip past my lips just about stopped my world from spinning.
One of the first things I mourned was the ability to travel easily and enjoy foods from every restaurant, taco truck, and ice cream stand in town. My diagnosis instantly curtailed the carefree exploration that I had previously indulged at every culinary opportunity.
It might sound silly, but it was hard not to slip into sadness.
Tentatively, I started attempting to make gluten free versions of all my favorite recipes. I also searched hungrily for new recipes that would help me recapture that sense of adventure I felt when looking for a new restaurant hot spot to try. That search is what inspired my newest cookbook release, the Gluten Free World Tour Cookbook.
Within its pages, you’ll find a culinary trip around the world that takes you from one fabulous gluten free recipe to another. I’m excited to help other gluten free cooks find happiness in the kitchen!
