People with gluten intolerance or coeliac (celiac) disease often struggle to find suitable recipes. Gluten-free ingredients can be expensive, making it a challenge to prepare family meals that don’t break the budget. One of the keys to successful gluten-free cooking is knowing which flour will give the best result. In this book, the various types of flours are discussed and a homemade gluten-free flour mix that forms the basis of many recipes in the book is included.
The South African Gluten-free Cookbook presents 100 tried-and-tested recipes that are perfect for everyday meals, as well as for entertaining. Baking and desserts receive special attention, but there are also recipes for great-tasting breads, quiches, noodles and pasta dishes that make use of a variety of gluten-free flours and flour substitutes.
In keeping with current trends, caulifl ower, quinoa and kale feature alongside salmon, pesto and Asian-style chicken, while traditional cooking holds its own with pumpkin fritters, waffles, mince pies and Yorkshire pudding.

Before actors and Food Network stars Jazz, Jake, Jurnee, and Jussie Smollett conquered Hollywood, they spent their childhood crisscrossing the United States. Moving coast to coast thirteen times, they car-tripped to small towns and big cities across America.
But no matter where they lived, two things remained constant: their incredible family feasts and the long, wooden kitchen table where they shared food and lived their lives. Each time they arrived in a new home, their mother would transform planks of hard wood into a smooth, varnished butcher block table in a beloved ritual that took three days. That hand-crafted table would become the heart of the Smollett clan, where the most important and cherished events and accomplishments, no matter how large or small, were honored, and where holidays were celebrated: Christmas, Easter, Passover, Chanukah, birthdays, milestones. With a mother from New Orleans and a Jewish father from New York who met and married in California, the Smollett kids were exposed to diverse culinary heritages and grew up open to all the deliciousness the world had to offer.
In this warm and personal book, the Smolletts invite us all to take a seat at their table and enjoy the good times and good food that help families thrive. The Family Table includes more than 130 delicious, comforting recipes that pay tribute to their past and present, including:
These favorite recipes from the Smolletts are suitable for intimate dinners and fabulous feasts alike, but more than that, The Family Table is a remarkable portrait of a loving, all-American family, rich with traditions that they continue to build to this day.
