Managing a healthy diet is doubly challenging when key baking ingredients --wheat, dairy, eggs, yeast, or refined sugar -- must be avoided due to food sensitivities, medical conditions, or other special diet needs.

Now, the Savory Palate's award-winning Special Diet Series comes to the rescue with a new cookbook -- Special Diet Solutions: Healthy Cooking Without Wheat, Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, Yeast, or Refined Sugar.

The recipes focus on breads, desserts, breakfast dishes, salad dressings, sauces, snacks, and condiments -- dishes that would ordinarily contain "problem" ingredients.

A special yeast-free bread section is included and condiments, etc. can be made yeast-free.

Each flavorful recipe is kitchen-tested and includes nutritional data and diabetic exchanges for managing a healthy diet. Even beginning cooks produce fail-proof results with the easy directions. Convenient mixes help busy cooks save time. A helpful glossary explains what the "substitute" ingredient is, what it does, and where to find it.

_ The Wheat-Free Kitchen_

Jacqueline Ross Mallorca was born in Scotland and educated in South Africa. A lifelong interest in cooking, probably engendered by horrible boarding school food led her to become a food editor.

After settling in San Francisco, she created the first of the Williams-Sonoma "Catalogs for Cooks" and continue to write the copy for the next two decades, winning many industry awards along the way.

Torn between the outrage and laughter at the diet sheets supplied by her physician, Ms. Mallorca set about redefining classic recipes, substituting rice flour, corn flour, potato starch and nut flour for flours made with wheat. Drawing upon the cuisines of countries as diverse as France, Italy, Ireland, and Greece, she has created a feast that both the gluten-intolerant and their families and friends can thoroughly enjoy.

As the author points out, the sharing of food and wine is what sustains and nurtures our relationships, and there is no reason why the "glutenally challenged" cannot share in the joys of the table.

Recipes for gluten-free rustic breads, pasta, sweet and savory tarts, cookies, cakes, desserts and even Christmas specialties are included, as are a number of mainly Mediterranean entree that are easy to make but elegant enough for entraining.
