Advance Praise for Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef
"Shauna''s passion for writing is second only to her passion for her husband, The Chef...and their gorgeous child, Lucy. When I read this cookbook, I felt like curling up, slowing down, and savoring the words on the pages. They''re life-giving—not just for folks who live a gluten-free lifestyle, but also for those (like me) who are simply inspired by the beauty of food." —Ree Drummond, author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks
"As fellow hopeless romantics who have been happily coupled for twenty-five years and married for twenty of them, we fell in love with this beautiful love story told by Shauna and Daniel Ahern of their life in food, with recipes. That these recipes were inspired by such compelling flavor combinations made us fall all the harder. This book is a heartfelt tribute to the healing power of food for both body and soul." —Karen Page and Andrew Dornenburg, James Beard
Award–winning authors of The Flavor Bible, Becoming a Chef, and Culinary Artistry
"Chefs are all over the media today, on TV and even in tabloids, but only rarely do we get to know one up close, through the loving eyes of his wife. Being a chef is not for the faint of heart, nor is being married to one, but Shauna and Danny tell their story with grace, wisdom, wit, and, as Danny might say, some kick-ass recipes, too."—Molly Wizenberg, author of A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table
"Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef is a writer''s cookbook, a chef''s cookbook, a reader''s cookbook, but most of all it''s a cook''s cookbook. It''s about a love of cooking and of being alive and appreciating one another and sharing good food. The Aherns have proven themselves experts at gluten-free cooking, and their practical wisdom and recipes here provide an extraordinary lesson in gluten-free cooking, but what this book is really about is love. What a generous book it is. As far as I''m concerned, this is what a cookbook is all about."
—Michael Ruhlman, author of Ratio: The Simple Codes Behind the Craftof Everyday Cooking and other books
"How can you resist a love story that reads even more sensuous than a romance novel—especially since it includes the pleasures of Bacon Butter, Blackberry-Peach Crumble, and Smoked Salt Caramel Ice Cream!"
—Jaden Hair, www.SteamyKitchen.com, and author of The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook
