It’s daunting when your child is diagnosed with a food allergy but just because they’re allergic to one, or indeed, several types of food doesn’t mean that they can’t eat delicious meals with the rest of the family, benefit from a healthy, balanced diet or (should they deserve them!) have tasty treats.

From shepherd’s pie, risottos, Thai curries and casseroles as well as cakes and desserts, The Allergy-Free Family Cookbook is packed full of 100 nutritious recipes, which allow everyone around the table to enjoy the same meal. Using ingredients that can be readily found in supermarkets, each recipe is free from all eight major food allergens: dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soya, gluten, sesame and shellfish.

Well, quite a lot actually; sweet and sour pork, shepherd's pie, lamb kebabs and chilli nachos being just a few, with sweet treats like banana bread, chocolate cake and ice lollies.

Waitrose Weekend
Food allergies are on the rise, and many home chefs have had to become familiar with tiptoeing through the minefield of irritating and/or dangerous ingredients in order to get a meal on to the table that all can tuck into with comfort, safety and enjoyment. It is that last element that is often challenging to conjure in the allergy-aware kitchen. But now two mothers whose children have significant food allergies have come up with a cookbook that puts the fun back into allergy-free cooking while also delivering a wealth of practical, jargon-free advice on the practical aspects of cooking, shopping and eating out. Parents who are just coming to terms with their child's allergies will find the section on labelling particularly useful.
