A comfortable and interesting table will make your meals a pleasure and Williams offers suggestions for using varied plates (from your shelves or the flea market) and helps you think creatively about serving food, like scooping ice cream into a tea cup, or serving chocolate mousse in a silver tablespoon.

There will be recipes like Ricotta Fritters, Carrot Spoon Bread, Shaved Brussels Sprouts with Pecorino and Walnuts, Potato Chips with Rosemary Salt, Scallops with Caper Brown Butter, Ratatouille, Roasted Heirloom Apples Stuffed with Pork Sausage, Chocolate on a Spoon, and her special Tarte Tatin. There will be sections on Aperitifs and Cocktails and Coffees and Teas. Also included will be 25 sidebars that offer useful tips on everything from building a bar to removing wine stains. With gorgeous photography and surprisingly simple recipes, this will be the book cooks will turn to again and again.

The Gluten-Free Table
The Gluten-Free Table
The Lagasse Girls Share Their Favorite Meals
April 2014 Trade Paperback
978-14555-1687-2
$17 / $19 Can

Imagine growing up with a father known for his rich, Creole-style cooking who instilled you with a love and appreciation of food from the very start-- the centerpiece of every memory is food. Now image literally not being able to eat most of his dishes anymore.

This is what happened to Jessie and Jilly Lagasse. In 2001 and 2004 respectively, the girls were diagnosed with gluten allergies. They had to learn to adjust, which meant changing the way they ate, the way they cooked, learning to plan ahead, and paying attention to ingredients in new ways. For example, traditional New Orleans gumbo relies on roux-- a flour and fat base. After years of experimentation and searching, finally, Jessie and Jilly have figured out how to make this and so many other recipes gluten-free!

While there are many more gluten-free products on the market now than ever before, sometimes you just want a home-cooked meal. This cookbook provides a well-balanced base of recipes that can add flavor and enjoyment to the menus of even the pickiest or most demanding of gluten-free eaters. With appetizers, soups, salads, sides, entrees, and desserts, there is something for everyone in THE GLUTEN FREE TABLE. Based equal parts on family favorites, Southern classics, and Jessie and Jilly's own adventures, recipes include:

  • Sweet and Sticky Chicken Drumsticks
  • Hearty Ham and Butterbean Soup
  • Jalapeno and Cheddar Cornbread
  • Slow Cooked Rosemary Chicken with Apples
  • Sweet Maple Syrup Johnycakes
  • and many, many more!

The Lagasse girls will teach you that a Gluten-free diet is nothing to be scared of. With a little bit of inventiveness and perseverance, you can find joy and triumph in a gluten-free diet-- and you won't feel like you're missing a thing!

Greek yogurt's protein quantity builds muscles and regulates metabolism and the probiotics help maintain a healthy digestive tract and boost the immune system. Greek yogurt is also an excellent source of calcium and very low in sodium-and it's lactose-intolerant friendly, too! Because it is strained, resulting in very low water content, the ingredient is thick, creamy, and indulgent. Why wouldn't you want it in every meal?
