Great Book Alert

posted by on October 12 at 11:52 AM

Gluten-Free Girl, Seattleite Shauna James Ahern’s book about living with joy and celebration amidst celiac disease, hits the shelves today. Ahern’s been interviewed extensively for the major papers in town, etc., but I’ve known of her for quite some time through her delightful and intense food blog. Ahern and her adoring/adorable new husband, the Chef, are in New York doing their own version of a book tour involving Central Park and a mass incantation of John Lennon’s Imagine.

I’m not gluten-free, myself. In fact I love gluten. (It does not love me. No matter.) However, Shauna’s recipes highlight what’s best about food and she works with seasonal, local produce as much as she can. And she writes a lot about local restaurants and markets, in lush, detailed prose that frequently gives me goosebumps.

Shauna and the Chef will be back in Seattle on October 20th, when you can meet them at the University District Farmers Market. They’ll be there for two hours (10 am to noon). I’ll definitely be stopping by to elevate my status from Blog Lurker to Person Shauna Has Actually Met.

Brandon, don't know if you were being sarcastic or what, but I think she is. I used to really like her blog until I realized that every other post involves her describing her crying at a beautiful crow or stop sign or some random shit. I think it's cool that she's been so successful with the blog and spreading knowledge about celiac disease, but seriously, her stories sometimes get a little out of hand.
