With both a huge, comprehensive informational section that discusses substitutions, alternatives, how to shop, how to spot "taboo" ingredients, how to deal with restaurants, etc., AND over 100 recipes, this is more than a cookbook, but a fabulous resource for anyone who's dairy free (or has allergies to eggs as well). I love Alisa's recipes precisesly because they bring me so many favorites made in new ways--a dairy free, sugar free, wheat free, egg free banana bread, for instance--as well as many innovative and delicious new recipes (peanut butter truffles? Yes, please!).
When I first received Go Dairy Free I tried about a dozen recipes within the space of a week and can honestly say I enjoyed them all, from pasta dishes to scones to faux cheeses. All of the ingredients can be found in a supermarket or natural foods store, and the healthier alternatives (such as using spelt flour instead of wheat) are almost always provided as an option so you can either choose to use them or not. When I need a recipe I can count on to work out as promised and to provide a delicious result, Go Dairy Free is my Go-To cookbook!
