Sweet Laurel: Recipes for Whole Food, Grain-Free Desserts: A Baking Book
By: Laurel Gallucci and Claire Thomas
A bit about the book…
A lifelong baker, Laurel Gallucci was diagnosed with an aggressive autoimmune disease and was told she would never eat chocolate cake again. But the dessert lover refused to accept that, which led her to discover the beauty of baking with whole food ingredients. The treats in this book are grain-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and dairy-free. They focus on using just a few quality ingredients to create wholesome and delicious desserts. These recipes are not about restriction; rather, Sweet Laurel celebrates enjoyment and indulgence. Whether looking for a simpler way to bake or struggling with an allergy, Sweet Laurel Cookbook will be any reader's new definitive grain-free baking book.
LAUREL GALLUCCI has baked delicious treats since she could turn on the oven. After she was diagnosed with an aggressive autoimmune disorder and her doctor put her on a strict diet, she started creating recipes of her own. Excited by the encouragement of friends and family, she turned her test kitchen into Sweet Laurel Bakery. CLAIRE THOMAS is the cofounder, creative director, and photographer of Sweet Laurel. Claire and Laurel's shared love of old-fashioned cooking, Los Angeles history, and blush-colored roses has led to a business founded in friendship. She is also the cook, writer, and photographer behind The Kitchy Kitchen.
