Over 1 in 100 Australian’s suffer from Coeliac Disease and cannot enjoy basic snacks such as biscuits, slices or tarts as many contain gluten, a protein found in some grains, making many people sick. An epidemic of the 21st Century is food intolerances and allergies. Intolerances and allergies affect people from all backgrounds and diagnosis of Coeliac Disease is becoming more and more prevalent.
Coeliac Disease is an autoimmune disease affecting approximately 1 in 100 Australian’s. That number is even greater worldwide. But it still remains well under diagnosed, with another suspected 200,000 Australians suffering from the disease, without even knowing it! Feelings of being bloated, cramped, anemic or constipated, may be symptoms of Coeliac Disease or wheat intolerance. People with Coeliac Disease remain sensitive to gluten and they must maintain a strict lifelong diet excluding these foods.
For mothers around the nation who suffer Coeliac Disease, a new innovation has now arrived just in time for Mother’s Day, ensuring she can now enjoy a greater variety of food.
Ruby M Brown, Qualified Food Technology Educator and Multi-Talented Culinary Author, has developed over 100 biscuits, slices and tarts recipes in a single cookbook. All recipes are suitable for those Mothers suffering Coeliac Disease.
The special formulations and recipes in Homestyle Cooking – Biscuits, Slices and Tarts have been developed over a number of years. The recipes range from traditional favourites such as Anzac Biscuits to delicious Shrewsbury Biscuits and magnificent Melting Moments to delight your palate.
This is Ruby’s third cookbook in the popular series of gluten free cookbooks published by Orgran. The easy-to-follow recipes are invaluable and this book will teach you the master craft techniques to develop the perfect gluten free biscuits, slices and tarts every time.
We all love to enjoy biscuits, slices and tarts and home-style cooking is much preferred to the store-variety. Nothing beats the aroma of freshly baked biscuits warm from the oven.
This cookbook is now available in all good bookstores, health food stores and independent supermarkets.
[Please note that most, but not all, of the recipes in this cookbook are dairy-free. Be sure to use dairy-free margarine where butter is called for]
