"PhD Meets Julia Child"
Our March 7th program features Annalise Roberts - whose cookbooks are a perennial favorite - and her sister Claudia Pillow, PhD. Their new book, "The Gluten-Free Good Health Cookbook" shatters the mold for diet books by combining basic science and proven medical research with a true love of food and eating.
After being diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002, Annalise Roberts devoted herself to developing gluten-free baking recipes that taste just as good, if not better than, their wheat flour counterparts. Her recipes were featured in Gourmet magazine in November 2005, and her first book, Gluten-Free Baking Classics appeared in May 2006. Her most recent book, Gluten-Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine is a collection of recipes developed for the Zojirushi bread machine. She works with celiac support groups and teaches gluten-free cooking and baking classes in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area.
In 2007, Claudia Pillow received her PhD in Health Studies from Texas Women's University, but she has been studying and working with food for her entire life. Dr. Pillow is a classically trained chef and graduate of the New York Restaurant School, and worked as a chef and caterer for many years in the New York metropolitan area. An MBA offered her the opportunity to jump to the corporate side of the food industry, where she marketed cheese and natural beverages. Currently she lectures about gluten intolerance and teaches gluten-free cooking and baking classes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Dr. Pillow serves on the board of the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America and is a local resource for the North Texas chapter.
The program will focus on the effect of food on the body as well as fabulous gluten free Food.
- How to strengthen the immune system and prevent chronic disease.
- How gluten free cooking can promote weight loss.
- How to replace gluten containing foods, reduce sugar intake and create balanced meals, and
