I'm in desperate need for a dear friend who can no longer eat any dairy. His wife doesn't know what to make and needs a good cookbook. Can you advise? Thanks I love Food 52... Susan Grimshaw,owner Vermont Tiny Kitchen
Any great vegan book would work! We have one :) https://food52.com/shop...
I also really like the recipes in this book: http://www.amazon.com/Whole...
There are a lot of blogs (some have cookbooks too!) that focus on plant-based and dairy-free fare:
The Minimalist Baker (cookbook coming soon - http://www.amazon.com/Minimalist...)
The First Mess
I also love Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. Plus, the Food52 Vegan cookbook, of course!
Asian and Indian cuisine may be a good place to start. They rarely use dairy products. I've found that many recipes where cheese isn't a large part of the dish, are still very good with the cheese left out.
Kosher cookbooks might be a good resource, as meat and dairy are never mixed. So, there are lots of meat dishes, obviously, but also side dishes and desserts without dairy.
