The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook ($18.95, 216 pp.), by Cybele Pascal, started off as a mother’s response to her infant son's diagnosis of severe allergies to diary and soy. Pascal, through creativity and strength, eliminated eight of the allergens responsible for 90% of food allergies. Her 200 recipes suit any occasion, whether it is a simple meal at home or a fancy party. Paired with an informative forward by Christine Fusillo, M.D., chief of pediatric allergy at the Westchester Medical Center, this cookbook will calm both minds and stomachs.
