Intolerance Friendly Kitchen Cookbook

Given that the launch of my new cookbook, Intolerance Friendly Kitchen, is under a month away, I figured now might be the time to chat a bit more about what’s inside. 

Intolerance Friendly Kitchen is a predominantly baking based cookbook. It is half sweet and half savoury, covering everything from gluten free croissants to gluten free, vegetarian and FODMAP friendly empanadas. We also delve into dumpling wrappers, filled pasta, noodles and breads.  It is a collection of recipes to celebrate delicious foods made suitable for special diets. 

The book contains over 100 gluten free, FODMAP friendly and intolerance friendly recipes, many of which use only one flour. It caters to the following intolerances and allergens: 

  • 100% of the recipes are gluten free, suitable for FODMAP, gluten intolerance and coeliac requirements
  • 100% of the recipes are FODMAP friendly – not a bean flour in sight!
  • The savoury recipes are all vegetarian, with many vegan options
  • There are a wealth of egg free, dairy free and vegan recipes (both sweet and savoury) 
  • Lots of recipes catering to starch free, gum free and corn free requirements
  • Nut free requirements are very well catered for (although nut allergies can be life threatening, so care needs to be taken in purchasing only nut free milks, allergen safe flours, etc)
  • Soy, sesame

A MONASH UPDATE

Monash lowered the threshold of some fruits and vegetables after Intolerance Friendly Kitchen went to print. These include strawberries and tomatoes. Strawberries used to have an unlimited FODMAP threshold, whereas they are now considered FODMAP friendly in serving size of 65g or less.

Most of the berry recipes in the book are within this threshold. The custard tart will need to use less strawberries on top if you need to keep it within acceptable fructose limits. Use 2 punnets of strawberries instead of 2-3. if you don’t react to strawberries, ignore this and eat as many as you like. 

The other recipe that has been impacted is the tomato tart. If you react to tomatoes, ensure you use common tomatoes. They are FODMAP friendly in a 65g (or 1/2 tomato) serving per person. This means you will need to use 3 tomatoes (or roughly 390g tomato) so that each serving is  65g. If you don’t react to tomatoes, ignore this and eat as many as you like. 

AMENDMENTS

The quantity of water used for the Yorkshire puddings was left out of the ingredients list. They use 1/2 cup (125ml) water in addition to the 1 cup (250ml) milk.

  1. Ordered! Have tried your gf anzacs so far, the choc chip cookies are next. I reallly would love some scones that are nut-free and corn free. Can’t wait!

  2. WOWZA this is the most exciting gluten-free cookbook I think I’ve ever seen! Ordering now and am so excited to bake from this beauty!

  3. Hi! I just saw your recipe for GF croissants and got so excited! I’m totally dairy free, though, and I was wondering if you make any recommendations in the book/on general for optional subs to make it DF and not just low lactose? (I’m sure it wouldn’t be as good as real milk and butter, but I haven’t had a croissant for 10 years so I’d take whatever imitation I can get!

    1. Hi Shaina! The milk can easily be subbed out for a plant based alternative, but the butter is more tricky. I’m not sure where you are based, but in Australia we don’t seem to have too many excellent vegan butter brands. A lot of recipe sites suggest Miyokos (this has cashews though) or Earth Balance Buttery sticks in dairy free croissants, so you could try and get your hands on those. You will likely need to refrigerate the dough more often than the regular sort, and keep a close eye out for the butter as the croissants proof.

      Personally I find the sourdough croissant recipe a little more forgiving, so it might be worth working with that one first!

      1. Thanks so much! I’m in the US and I do have access to those brands. I’ll give it a try the next time I have time for a big baking project!

  4. I saw your gluten free croissant and I’m ao excited!! I’m french so they hold a special place in my heart. One question: im gluten free and corn free which really limits a lot of choice. How much of your recipes are corn free? I saw 2 mentioning no corn. does it means that all the other ones have corn?

    1. Hi Amira! I think you might have read it the wrong way around. There are a couple that contain corn with no substitutes (things like the corn empanada filling) but the rest of the recipes contain no corn. There are also a few with a corn free option – the creme patissiere is made with cornflour (which impacts things like the eclairs) but there is an option to use a different starch in case of corn allergies 🙂

  5. OMG! I’M SO EXCITED!!! Someone on my GF BAKING Facebook group suggested your book so I went on AMAZON to look it up. Can’t wait till it arrives! I’ve had digestive problems my entire life, (75yrs) and my diet now is SO restricted. I’m an accomplished cook/baker who cannot eat most of what I make for others. You’ve given me some HOPE! Keeping my condition in remission is a delicate balancing act. If I can expand my choices and bring some real pleasure back to eating, then life will be more joyous! Thank you! I am optimistic!
