    GLUTEN AND GLUTEN FREE COOKING IN PERFECT HARMONY... What makes this book different from other gluten free books is that the recipes are written for everyone-people with and without gluten issues.

Creating one recipe for the whole family with one little tweak called the "root recipe".

The best part is that the gluten-free person gets to eat exactly what the non gluten-free people eat. If you enjoy delicious food, this book is for you. If you are on a food allergy journey, this book is for you. If your family is food diversified, this book is for you.
