On Wednesday, November 30, I’ll be teaming up with Chef Adam at Butch’s Restaurant to offer a wheat-free, corn-free, cow-dairy-free dinner featuring a menu from my cookbook, Nothing to Sneeze At: Main Dishes For People With Allergies.
Here’s what Chef’s got planned:
Curried Roasted Squash Soup
Lamb Souviaki with Grilled Halloumi Cheese and Greek Salad
Wheat-Free, Dairy-Free Lasagna
Potato and Leek Quiche
The cost is $35 a person (plus tax/gratuity) and drinks are separate. Butch is hoping to offer organic wines and gluten-free beers.
I’ll have books to purchase at the great low price of $20 each. (Sells at retail for $26.86 on Lulu.com or as an e-Book on iTunes and Barnes & Noble for $13.99.) Don’t forget the food allergy sufferers on your holiday shopping list! Book signing will begin at 6:30pm and dinner will start at 7pm.
Reserve your space today by calling Butch’s Restaurant at 616-396-8227 because it’s filling up fast!

There’s a little project I’ve been working on during the past six months with a few good and talented friends. And because many of my blog readers suffer from food allergies–or live with people who suffer from them–I thought I’d share the fruits of our labor: I just published my first cookbook and it’s called Nothing to Sneeze At: Main Dishes for People with Allergies.
In the last several years that I’ve lived with Bill, who is allergic to wheat, cow dairy, and corn, I learned how many unnecessary ingredients are in processed food. I also learned how to make substitutions for the foods he can’t eat: bread, milk, butter, tortillas, most cereals, waffles, cookies, crackers, yoghurt, ice cream, cheeses from cows, breadcrumbs, semolina pasta–and even regular ketchup–just to name a few.
Adapting and creating recipes–many of which are posted on this blog–simply became a fun challenge as I cooked in the kitchen. So I thought: Why not share the recipes with people who suffer from food allergies? Then others can see how easy it is to make delicious meals without sacrificing flavor or nutrition.
If you’re interesting in buying your own copy of Nothing to Sneeze At, please visit Lulu.com. I hope it offers hope and inspiration for those who suffer from allergies at the table!
