When you have to give up gluten, either for yourself or a family member, you may think you have to say good-bye to all of the comforting foods you love. It's hard enough adopting a new way of eating, but the idea of giving up your favorite fried chicken, mac 'n' cheese, or oatmeal raisin cookies is downright unfair and intimidating (and if your kids are the ones diagnosed, it can be even more difficult!). It's a story Jilly and Jessie Lagasse know well.

With a father famous for his bold Creole cuisine, Jilly and Jessie grew up loving rich foods full of big flavor. When they learned they both had to eliminate gluten, the Lagasse girls made it their mission to demonstrate that "gluten-free" doesn't have to mean "flavor-free." After years of gluten-free eating and experimentation, they're here to help you re-create classic recipes and all-time favorites made without gluten--without sacrificing any of the signature flavors that make them so irresistible.

Using everyday ingredients you can find at most grocery stores, Jilly and Jessie share recipes for breakfasts, lunches (including hearty salads and soups), appetizers, mains, and, of course, scrumptious desserts. With dairy-free and quick-and-easy options as well, Jilly and Jessie make gluten-free eating simple and extraordinarily delicious--whether you're cooking for one or two, hosting a family get-together, or feeding the whole Little League team.

Author Notes

Jilly Lagasse 's passion for food was apparent from a very early age. Recognizing her natural talent in the kitchen, her father gifted her with a set of Chef's Whites and allowed her to start helping in the Pastry and Dessert
Department in one of his restaurants. This led to her assisting him on book tours and cooking events, and even working alongside him on his Emeril's Creole Christmas cookbook. Jilly currently lives in New Orleans and travels back to London every chance she can. An apron is always packed and on hand for cooking in anyone's kitchen she can along the way.

Jessie Lagasse Swanson is the author, with her sister Jilly, of The Gluten-Free Table . Having followed a gluten-free diet since 2001, Jessie has
spent countless hours honing her gluten-free recipes and cooking strategies in an effort to always sit down to a delicious and flavorful gluten-free meal. Jessie currently resides in New Orleans with her husband, Steven, and two sons, Jude and John Peter.
