Lucie Cote Contente EventGluten and Gluten Free Cooking in Perfect Harmony Take 2: The One Recipe Solution to Accommodate Everyone
by Lucie Cote Contente

What makes this book different from other gluten free books is that the recipes are written for everyone—people with and without gluten issues. Delicious meals made the original way and it incorporates a new cooking technique for people with food allergies. Creating one recipe for the whole family with one little tweak called the “root recipe." If you have a food allergy, imagine the main part of the recipe is like a tree trunk - the part everyone can eat, separate the main mixture into 2 bowls and add the “root ingredients” - the gluten free/non gluten free ingredient to complete the recipes. 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.

Lucie Cote Contente is a wife, mom, and grandma who happens to have Celiac disease. When I was diagnosed a few years ago I knew my food life had to change. I had to learn to cook differently but still make the food taste great. It's been a journey and I learned so many things. My goal is to help others with food allergies to have an easier journey. In 2017 I created my first cookbook for everyone to enjoy. My second cookbook was published July 2018. There are 70 recipes in both cookbooks: breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, potpouri, and alcoholic beverages. All the recipes are written gluten free, traditional, or how to make both at the same time. It's perfect for everyone, people with and without food allergies, and multi food families.
