This is a book packed with brilliantly appealing breakfast, lunch, dinner and baking recipes - that also happen to be dairy-free. Dairy-Free Delicious offers over 100 simple and irresistible recipes to inspire people to cook with imagination and eat their favourite treats. Many of the recipes are influenced by Katy's dairy-free travels, particularly in Asia where milk rarely features, and in the US - for example Thai fishcakes, Vietnamese chicken and pumpkin curry, Neapolitan iced buns and Coconut milk ice cream. Even old favourites like pancakes, creamy chicken soup, fish pie, risotto, eggs benedict, custard tarts, chocolate cake and cookies prove that lactose intolerance is no barrier to eating irresistible food every day. UK sales of non-dairy milks have gone up 40% in the past 3 years and are predicted to increase by 56% by 2016; and the market was worth GBP519m in 2012. Diagnosed with lactose intolerance in 2011, Katy Salter has created a cookbook for people who don't want to stop enjoying food just because their bodies refuse to digest lactose properly.
