McKenna is a British reality TV personality and advocate for people living with celiac disease and other food sensitivities. She appeared on Celebrity MasterChef UK and made it to the finals preparing only gluten-free dishes. In her first cookbook, she continues her advocacy and provides a collection of her comfort food go-tos. She provides numerous helpful tips, such as places to look for hidden gluten, practical recipes for new cooks, and tricks for getting dinner on the table when it seems impossible. Bright and fun photography reflects the overall tone, which focuses on reclaiming the joy of food and encourages those who have lost their passion for eating to get into the kitchen and make something they will enjoy. Recipes cover what McKenna considers the basics and are distinctly British. Some might find this focus a limitation, but the target audience of new cooks trying to navigate gluten-free diets and cooking will still find much in these pages that applies.
VERDICT Recommended for libraries with a high demand for gluten-free cookbooks, especially those looking for an entry point into the kitchen.
