The Gluten-free Table

The bad news is that Emeril Lagasse’s twin daughter’s have to be on a gluten-free diet. The good news is that they have written a wonderful cookbook, “The Gluten-free Table” by Jilly and Jessie Lagasse . The book contains lots of New Orleans style dishes and family recipes that they still want to be able to enjoy. Their recipes aren’t plain dishes where the good ingredients have been eliminated but, full flavor dishes like Jambalaya and Spaghetti Bolognese. I have made the Chocolate Raspberry Bars several times and they are great for a special occasion. The crust and technique are like making lemon bars which results in a really flaky crust. See if your local library or bookstore has the book so that you can get a good look at it before you buy it. Emeril’s Essence, an all purpose seasoning blend in the spice section of the grocery, is also gluten-free.
