“Entertaining in today’s world is not just about delicious recipes—it’s also about understanding allergies, food sensitivities and the benefits of healthy eating,” says Stosek. Instead of walking through the dimly-lit “gluten-free” section of a marketplace and trying to decipher the copious GF lingo, Stosek suggests using everyday gluten-free staples to create dishes that please all—gluten-sensitive or not. From Lemon Raspberry Cake to Gourmet Turkey Burgers to Fresh Chocolate-Dipped Figs, if you’re entertaining gluten-free, this resource is a must-have.

Check out this WL exclusive sneak-peak recipe: Stosek’s Gluten-Free Quinoa Salad with Grapes and Sweet Peas.

Quinoa w Grapes Sweet Peas
The combination of peas and grapes make this a special salad. Stosek recommends serving it with fish or chicken, but it can also be served as a main dish for vegetarians. The quinoa is gently marinated with the dressing and the grapes add a little sweetness.
