Imagine growing up with a father known for his rish 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 they 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!
