In this delightful and delicious tome, cultural anthropologist, gourmet cook, and self-professed “foodie” Monika Sudakov reveals the secrets of fun, festive, and flavorful gluten-free cooking. Preparing a gluten-free meal for a guest used to be a dilemma: a separate menu for the one, or a bland, uninspired menu for the many. Not anymore! Here are a wide variety of culturally-inspired appetizers, main courses, side dishes, and desserts to please the most particular palate. Take an international “food cruise” from the comfort of your dining room table! Best of all, no one will have to worry about gluten intolerances.


“What a great entertaining resource! . . . This book proves that gluten-free cooking can be tasty, nutritious, diverse, and easy to produce. Happy, safe eating!”

– Debra L. Tindle, Registered Dietitian System Clinical Nutrition Manager, Orange County, CA

“I just want to say how much I LOVE your gluten-free cookbook!!! I was so inspired by the Moroccan dinner that I made Harira over the weekend and it was fabulous! I love the fact that your cookbook features so many different kinds of foods, at varying levels of difficulty. And they are all things that are so appealing, and that I WANT to make! (A lot of gluten free cookbooks have things that are pretty uninspiring . . . ) I think this is my favorite cookbook ever! I can tell it’s going to get a LOT of use. Thank you so much for putting it together. It’s going to be a wonderful resource for years to come. Now I actually have some great things to make for us, and for company!”

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for speaking about celiac disease on the Paula Sands show. You gave those of us with celiac disease a voice and I really appreciate your knowledge and understanding of the disease. It was really refreshing to hear and have you address the concerns and consequences of gluten in a someone diagnosed with the disease. This is not a fad diet but a real and true disease effecting a lot of people and being extremely detrimental to our health. We eat this way to be able to have a healthy life. I am looking forward to getting your book and trying out the recipes.”

– Denise
