What Alice has done to her recipe in this book is to provide a basic recipe that includes one or two “big four”, eggs, dairy, gluten or nuts, and then provide a change for each recipe so you You can exclude or add ingredients for specific allergens you need to avoid.
This book has a good introduction, explaining why she wrote a cookbook, she likes food, and found that many people she knows have difficulty finding useful recipes so that the whole family can eat the same together in one or more Delicious food is allergic to or intolerant of different foods.
