REVIEW: Going Against The Grain Italian Style by Nuccia Ardagna


Posted by Ryder Islington, author of Ultimate Justice, A Trey Fontaine Mystery For those of us who are gluten sensitive, gluten intolerant, or have full-blown celiac disease, this book is a life saver.  With an informative forward by Peter HR Green, MD, who helps the reader understand what gluten is, and how it affects those of us who don’t tolerate it, and details directly from the author about her own journey, Going Against The Grain Italian Style, reminds us of our limitations, while opening us up to the wonderful possibilities of great food that’s gluten free!
