BACKGROUND

Author Laura B. Russell has created a cookbook that focuses on Asian style recipes that are gluten-free. The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen offers recipes for noodles, dumplings sauces and other Asian style dishes. Asian food is not off limits if you want to avoid gluten as this book proves. In addition to being gluten-free, these recipes can save you the cost of ordering takeout because you can cook your favorite dishes at home. There are roughly three million people that suffer from an allergy to gluten or celiac disease in America alone. Laura B. Russell created this book to help those that love Asian food, but cannot eat it due to the fact that items from soy sauce to dumplings typically contain high amounts of gluten.

She shares her personal experiences suffering from a gluten allergy and how much better she felt once she eliminated gluten from her diet. Laura is the former associate editor of Food & Wine Cookbooks and frequently contributes to Prevention magazine. The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen allows you to eat your favorite Asian dishes instead of suffering and feeling deprived.
