Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations cookbook
Danielle Walker's Celebrations is one of the most beautiful cookbooks that I have ever seen. Page after page is full of beautiful photos of recipes--recipes that my family can all eat.With food allergies in my family, that can be a challenge, but Danielle Walker makes it look so easy.
Celebrations contains "a year of gluten-free, dairy-free, and Paleo recipes for every occasion."The cookbook starts out with a chapter of practical substitutions ad information on the basic ingredients and equipment you will need to make the recipes in the book. Once the basics are done, Walker has chapters on most of the occasions family's celebrate through the year, including, New Year's Eve, Game Day, Valentine's Day, Easter Brunch, Mother's Day and Father's Day, and through the year. She also includes special recipes and ideas for birthday parties and showers.
The recipes nearly all look delicious to me. A few of the recipes include: Strawberry Salmon salad with poppy seed dressing, caramel-pecan sticky buns, berry tart with vanilla bean custard, homemade ginger ale, green bean casserole with crispy shallots (this one was worth the whole book for me), and thumbprint cookies. I am anxious to try many in the book.
As someone with food allergies at family gatherings, I know it would mean a lot to me if the family would make food we could all eat. This book offers a great variety of recipes that everyone can eat and enjoy written by someone who has to eat a special diet. I highly recommend it.
I received Danielle Walker's Celebrations from Blogging for Books for this review. I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for the book.
