“Few allergen-free cookbooks address the reader with the same grace, compassion, humor, and understanding of their core audience that Cybele Pascal’s does. With smart, easy-to-make, and beautifully pictured recipes, Cybele makes ‘luscious,’ ‘delectable,’ and ‘mouthwatering’ the new allergen-free baking buzzwords. Keep The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook in your kitchen for constant reference, and get your crumble on!”
–Sloane Miller, president of Allergic Girl Resources
“The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook will be a boon to many. Instead of a drab existence, those living with food allergies will eat freely and well with its reliable recipes: Chocolate Chip Cupcakes; Raspberry Galette with Cornmeal Crust; and Cinnamon Rolls for Sunday mornings. I’ll be baking out of this book for years, and I’m sure you will be too.”
–Shauna James Ahern, author of Gluten-Free Girl
Clinical Nutrition Service, Children’s Hospital Boston
“Children and adults living with food allergies should not be deprived of homemade treats, so I am eager to recommend The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook to my clients. The recipes have the extra advantage of using nutrient-dense, minimally processed ingredients such as whole grains, seeds, and fruits. Finally, all of your favorite treats and allergen-free and gluten-free recipes are in one book!”
–Wendy Elverson, RD, LDN, pediatric nutritionist in Clinical Nutrition Service at Children’s Hospital Boston and consultant with the Child Development Network
I am finally writing to you, you wonderful, wonderful women Cybele Pascal! My son Noah was being treated for the last 5 years as a ‘reflux’ child and had been using Prevacid twice a day and still vomiting. To try and make a long story short, we took action and found out that Noah was allergic to Soy, Eggs and Dairy this past August. Your cookbook saved my life. When we first found out, I cried (in the grocery store) for days wondering what am I going to feed this poor child? … Please, keep up the excellent work. Us Moms out there with food allergic children are most grateful.
Hi Cybele, I just found out about your cookbook through a food allergy support group and ordered it on Amazon. I love it! It’s the creative cookbook I was hoping Ming Tsai would write! My daughter is 6 (allergic to peanuts & treenuts, which I now realize is a piece of cake) and my son is allergic to milk, eggs, shellfish, sesame, lentils, plus we avoid peanuts, treenuts, and fish as a precaution… I wish I had this book on hand 4 years ago! … I am recommending the book to everyone I know who deals with food allergies.
I have to tell you, I think your next cookbook should come with a string attached – so moms of allergic children can wear it around their neck for easy reference… Your book is such a gift to foodies that have to avoid mainstream ingredients. I could give you such a huge hug just for how you enabled us to have “normal” cakes and cookies at birthday parties for my son… Truly, I could go on and on… What you’ve done is nothing short of a miracle… Please keep up your GREAT work. It’s such a needed tool for moms in situations like ours. If you ever come out with a sequel, put me on your list!!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am emailing to personally thank you for writing the MOST incredible, delicious cookbook! The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook is the ONLY cookbook I cook from…Your cookbook seriously has NOT ONCE disappointed me nor my husband, nor my daughter Julia! She LOVES every recipe! So, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again for writing your cookbook and thank you for helping us through this CRAZY time in our lives!! You really have made a HUGE impact and we are forever thankful!! As a matter of fact, I am thinking of taking my book to Kinkos, cutting the binder off and have it spiral bound!
