Sisters and best-selling authors, Judi and Shari Zucker (also known as the “Double Energy Twins),” have written an uncommon cookbook which addresses a common problem – preparing meals for any occasion for folks living with food allergies. In their just-released, “The Ultimate Allergy-Free Cookbook: Over 150 Easy-to-Make Recipes That Contain No Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Soy, Fish, or Shellfish,” the Zuckers not only provide straightforward recipes for preparing delicious meals that you and your family will actually enjoy eating, but guidelines for setting up an allergen-free kitchen, instructions for reading food labels and tips for avoiding cross contamination, as well. In addition, the book contains a list of allergen-free ingredient options, a resource section listing helpful allergen-free websites, recommended products and reliable manufacturers “that support the allergen-free lifestyle.” Writes the Zuckers, “Over 15 million people in the United States suffer from food allergies, with the highest incidence among children under eighteen years old.” And, if that weren’t alarming enough, our pets can have food allergies, too – all detailed in the book. Sure, there are many reasons to love this cookbook, but let’s not overlook the best reason of all –the recipes – bursts of color, flavor and texture all.
