More about the Author:
Tracy Griffith, who comes from a prominent Hollywood family, is a professional chef and the best-selling author of the cookbook Sushi American Style. She lives and works in Hong Kong, New York City and Napa, California. Ms. Griffith was the first woman to graduate from the California Sushi Academy, and is executive chef for New Gem Foods.
“Why did I make these recipes gluten-free? My own experience of going gluten-free (and I do not have celiac disease or gluten intolerance) was life-changing. The increased energy, better concentration and mood lift were remarkable. I got fired up with the challenge of preparing gluten-free gourmet dishes. I also learned that there are so many children who have to avoid gluten, and I felt for them, having to dig a little deeper to sort out their diets in a fast-food, cupcake world. These recipes—every one gluten-free—are fun to make and safe to eat for them and their whole families.”
