Danielle Walker’s Against All Grain Celebrations: A Year of Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, and Paleo Recipes for Every Occasion by Danielle Walker book review



From the two-time New York Times best-selling author of the Against All Grain series, comes 125 recipes for grain-free, dairy-free, gluten-free comfort food recipes for holidays and special occasions.

When people adopt a new diet for health or personal reasons, it’s the parties, holidays, and events with strong food traditions they worry about most. In Celebrations, best-selling author Danielle Walker provides recipes and menus for twelve special occasions, from a child’s birthday party and baby shower, to a backyard barbeque, romantic Valentine’s Day dinner for two, and even a Halloween party. Of course, Thanksgiving, Christmas dinner, New Year’s Eve party, and Easter/Passover brunch are also covered–along with suggestions for beverages and cocktails and the all-important desserts. Nearly every recipe is photographed, and food and party images shot on location provide beautiful and creative entertaining ideas. Delicious and easy-to-prepare dishes encourage the whole family to get into the kitchen and create lasting memories–no matter what the occasion.



So it took me a while to be able to review this book. Not for lack of interest but due to way too much interest. I have cooked several of the recipes in here and have found them all to be delicious! This book is great and includes many helpful tools and pictures. I particularly loved the conversion chart that was located within the back section. She also includes a chart that shows all the recipes and whether they are nut free,etc. So as that you can find things to cook for people who may have certain allergies. This recipe book is great for holidays! Each section is divided up into its own holiday, for instance, Christmas, New Years, Mother’s Day, Fathers Day, 4th of July, etc. The book is beautifully illustrated. I found it nice that the majority of the recipes call for things i can easily find in a grocery store. There were some higher end items i had to purchase such as coconut flour but once these items were in my pantry they lasted for multiple recipes. I truly loved this cook book. 5 stars from me.
