The Intolerant Gourmet

Life is strange. The Intolerant Gourmet is the title of my forthcoming book--end October, early November. I have been working on it for four years. It turns out that by hideous coincidence that there is a book with the same title by an English writer and published in England using English weights and measures.

I hope that you will wait for my book or order it now. Many of you have enjoyed my recipes over the years.

If you want my book with my recipes and fitted to our kitchens, it is important that you specify that you are ordering The Intolerant Gourmet by Barbara Kafka.

I hope that you will. I am very proud of my book and I think that you will enjoy it and its food. Also in addition to being gluten free it is lactose free. Many people have a great deal of trouble digesting milk products.

I hope that you have wonderful food using my book and that you are healthier for it.

Let me know what you think and be patient until you can get a copy of my book.

Quinoa starvation

A few days ago I wrote about my feelings of guilt over the high demand for quinoa. In large part, I feel responsible. I wrote about it several times as the ideal replacement for milk. Several people asked for more information. I snooped around on the web on line. The best information I found about this Andean grain was at: Quinoa Bolivia Starvation. Try it and worry with me

I am suffering from acute quinoa guilt. I started writing about it and everybody jumped on the bandwagon. Now, the mountain people ofPeru are starving from lack of quinoa. Try teff or chickpea flour, both nutritionally good.

However, i should point out that quinoa pasta ahd just come on the market. It's not the greatest and takes longer to cook than the package directions, but would be good for vegans.

The rest of us can eat meat.
