About the Author

Carlyn Berghoff McClure, CEO of the Berghoff Catering and Restaurant Group, is the fourth generation to continue the Berghoff legacy of serving great food and entertaining guests. She is an author, a chef and restaurateur, a caterer, and a wife and mother. She is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and now operates the famous Berghoff restaurants and also catering out of Chicago's century-old Berghoff building. She is the coauthor of The Berghoff Family Cookbook and author of The Berghoff Café Cookbook. She is married to Jim McClure, and the couple has two daughters and a son. She has embraced gluten-free cooking, and product and recipe development after her daughter Sarah was diagnosed with celiac disease.

Sarah Berghoff McClure is the second daughter of Jim McClure and Carlyn Berghoff McClure. She attends high school, is the coxswain for a rowing team, and loves to cook. She has two pet lovebirds (she says she’s their mother) and a dog named Badger. She liked all the normal teen-age foods: fries, cookies, cakes, pizza, stuffing and gravy and more. In 2009, she became critically ill, lost ten pounds suddenly, and was diagnosed with celiac disease. Since then she has regained her health and vitality and tells everyone she is going to live ten years longer because she is eating gluten free.

Dr. Suzanne P. Nelson, MD, MPH, specializes in pediatric gastroenterolgy and is Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics, The Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. She graduated from Northwestern University Medical School with a Doctor of Medicine (MD) and from Harvard School of Public Health with a Master of Public Health (MPH).   She has a busy gastroenterology practice and has been recognized with various awards including US News “Top Doctor” status. According to Dr. Nelson, about 1% of Americans have celiac disease. Among that 1% is Sarah Berghoff McClure, one of Dr. Nelson’s patients. And while Dr Nelson is never happy to tell her patients: “You have celiac disease,” she notes “a part of me is always relieved because I know the child is going to be all right. Celiac disease is one of the few diseases I treat that doesn't require any medication (and therefore no drug side effects) and is 100% treatable by diet.” Carlyn and Sarah Berghoff McClure are thankful for Dr. Nelson and her role as the advisor and consultant for this cookbook.

Nancy Ross Ryan served as the writer for The Berghoff Family Cookbook and The Berghoff Café Cookbook. She is the founder of Fresh Food Writing in Chicago, Illinois, and specializes in food writing and recipe development.

I have made several of the recipes so far and they have been easy to prepare and have turned out well.
Of course, I shared this book with the best friend's Mom but also got copies to share with other friends and family who eat gluten-free.
I found "Cooking for Your Gluten-Free Teen: Everyday Foods the Whole Family Will Love" and couldn't be happier with my purchase.

I got this book from the Berghoff, not on Amazon, but wanted to post a review here so that others who were looking for a guide to cooking gluten free could read what I found were the most valuable things about this book. I think it is a great resource and goes beyond just providing recipes.

1) It does a good job of explaining celiac disease. People like Sarah who suffer from celiac disease can face serious health problems if they don't learn about their disease and how to manage what they eat. More and more people I know-- who don't actually have celiac but suffer from gluten intolerance and sensitivity -- have benefited greatly from switching to a gluten-free diet.

2) Going gluten free is not easy. This book gives you guidance on where/how to start, recipe and cooking guidelines, and resources for gluten-free items. Plus, the author shares tips for eating out and staying gluten free which I think is a HUGE challenge.

3) Going gluten-free CAN BE EXPENSIVE! Gluten-free products, and pre-made items can get pretty pricey- by learning how to make your own gluten-free meals, you can expand your meal choices PLUS save some money. (The recipe for gluten-free flour is priceless in my opinion.)

4) Finally, the best thing about this cookbook is that it teaches you that you don't have to give up the everyday favorite foods that you love. You can have pizza, nachos, sandwiches, even baked goods like cookies and cakes! The ingredient lists aren't extensive- beyond stocking a few basic gluten-free stock items, this is all stuff that you would normally have on hand or buy anyway.

So if you eat gluten-free, or are thinking about going gluten free, then I think you will be very happy with this purchase. The recipes are yummy, make sense, and they might even give you some ideas for creating gluten-free meals of your own!

I have known I have Celiacs disease for 3 years now and understand the plights of changing to a Gluten Free lifestyle. Reading "Cooking for Your Gluten-Free Teen" brought me back to the days where I was clueless to the disease. It is a tough road especially if you are helping someone else get comfortable with this lifestyle. This book is the perfect introduction to switching to a GF lifestyle. I wish I had this book when I was first navigating the road to Gluten-Free.

"Eating Out: School, Restaurants and Away from Home" section is a must read. Three years into eating GF and I still struggle with this. Any additional advice and knowledge, especially coming from a Chef's perspective, is always appreciated.

The recipes that I have made are delicious and I am very excited to try out some more. Great book, Thanks!

Full disclosure: I've known Carlyn Berghoff, one of the authors of this book, for over 5 years. As a cookbook aficionado, I loved her two earlier cookbooks The Berghoff Family Cookbook: From Our Table to Yours, Celebrating a Century of Entertaining and The Berghoff Café Cookbook: Berghoff Family Recipes for Simple, Satisfying Food. And I've seen her evolve as a chef because of how Celiac disease directly impacted her family and how that has - in turn - influenced the menus at her restaurant.

While I don't have a teen with Celiac disease or a gluten intolerance in my household, I do have a large extended family filled with kids. And as an amateur baker and avid cook, I'm always getting asked about gluten-free options to my recipes. The truth is I'm still trying to figure out exactly where gluten hides in the everyday ingredients I use in my cooking and baking. One of the things I'm most excited about is the recipe for making your own gluten-free all-purpose flour (p. 43); having that in my pantry should give me greater confidence as I create new gluten-free recipes in my own kitchen.

There's a good deal of practical advice inside this book from the points of view as a parent and a teen. I especially liked the section from Sarah (a typical teen) with suggestions for how she manages eating out, whether that be in a restaurant, at school or away from home. As anyone who's ever cooked for a larger family knows, there's only so much you can control when it comes to how your family eats.

"Cooking for Your Gluten-Free Teen" is a great everyday cook book for anyone. It has simple, creative, delicious recipes that will inspire you to get up off of the couch and cook. My husband is gluten intolerant and also has a sweet tooth so he loves the breads and desserts but I combine these with the healthier recipes like the delicious chicken noodle soup or try to make the cupcakes which have built in portion control. Thanks to this wonderful cookbook that has opened up a world of choices, instead of making gluten versus non-gluten I can just go with gluten-free because it's delicious and my son and I enjoy it just as much! Thank you so much!Cooking for Your Gluten-Free Teen: Everyday Foods the Whole Family Will Love
