Gallucci and Thomas, the team behind Sweet Laurel bakery in Pacific Palisades, CA, debut with a collection of savory recipes ideal for people with a variety of dietary needs. Gallucci cofounded Sweet Laurel after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder; the bakery strives to use alternative ingredients that are easily digestible. Beginning with their favorite pantry ingredients, including arrowroot powder and tapioca starch, the authors continue to list other mainstays, such as coconut yogurt and Dijon mustard. These building blocks help with assembling recipes featured throughout, including Maple Bacon Caramelized Onion Rolls and Claire’s Favorite Tortilla Soup. Also included are recipes for a variety of meals and settings, from casual salads to sandwiches for two to larger dinners and desserts for family gatherings. Photographs are beautiful and plentiful; home cooks will not be disappointed by the easy-to-follow layout or the friendly narrative that will guide them along the way.
VERDICT This cookbook will become an essential resource for those with food sensitivities, and it will also interest anyone who simply enjoys a good meal.
