gourmet, non-chemical gluten-free and dairy-free recipe sources?

rllevy | Feb 18, 2009 08:43 AM

My best friend was recently diagnosed with an intolerance to dairy/gluten.

For her birthday, she requested that I cook for her/teach her how to cook gluten free/dairy free. It's a pretty tall order and I really want to do right by her (she's an amazing person and has had a very tough year).

I want to make food that I can teach her to make, without a whole ton of weird GF ingredients (25 types of flour...). I worked in food technology r&d on gluten-free baked goods, so I'm somewhat familiar.

I'm looking for recipes (yes, I can use google, but sometimes other people have better ideas) where all the ingredients can be purchased at a typical grocery store, are cost effective and delicious. The words "xanthan gum" will make her run in the opposite direction; no strange chemicals. Bonus if they are processed-sugar-free.
