Imagine growing up with a father known for his rich Creole-style cooking who created many classic dishes you loved-and then years later not being able to enjoy most of his recipes anymore. That's what happened to Jilly and Jessie Lagasse, daughters of Emeril Lagasse, when they were diagnosed with gluten intolerance. They had to learn to adjust, which meant changing the way they ate and cooked as well as paying attention to ingredients in new ways.

After years of experimentation and searching, Jilly and Jessie discovered that they didn't have to give up the dishes they loved-and the joy of eating and sharing meals-just because they now had a gluten-free lifestyle. With a little bit of inventiveness and perseverance, they found joy and triumph in a gluten-free diet-and no longer feel they're missing a thing!

THE GLUTEN-FREE TABLE offers more than a hundred delicious recipes that will add flavor and enjoyment to the menus of even the most demanding gluten-free eaters. Featuring family favorites, Southern classics, and ten original recipes from their father, this compendium has something for everyone, including:

Mouthwatering Appetizers:

Zucchini and Polenta Fritters, Mini Goat Cheese and Fig Pizzas, and Sweet 'n' Sticky Chicken Wingettes

Fresh and Filling Salads:

Grilled Halloumi and Watermelon Salad, Pear and Fennel Salad with Goat Cheese and Candied Walnuts, and Satay Chicken Salad with Rice Noodles

Sumptuous, Hearty Soups:

Crab and Corn Bisque, French Onion Soup with Gruyère-Smothered Crostini, and New Orleans Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Perfectly Suited Sides:

Jalapeño and Cheddar Cornbread, Cheesy Shrimp and Crab Grits, and Sesame Stir-Fried Rice

Enticing Entrées:

Chicken Pot Pie with Lyonnaise Potato Crust, Lemon and Asparagus Risotto, and Emeril's Gluten-Free Pizza

Delectable Desserts:

Classic Key Lime Pie, Coconut Chocolate-Chip Cookies, and Maple Syrup Johnnycakes with Ice Cream
