Gluten Free Cooking In Ireland
Did you know that Irish people and people of Irish descent have a greater chance of being gluten intolerant or suffering from Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder and is quite common in Northern Europe. It is especially prevalent in Ireland, where 1 in 100 people are believed to live with the disease.
No one is completely sure why the Irish and their descendants around the world are so prone to suffering from Celiac disease. One theory proposes that the dependence of the Irish upon the potato before the Famine of the 1840's meant that they developed an intolerance to cereals.
In fact, in pre-famine Ireland, the poor often only ate potatoes for every meal of the day. When diets changed over the decades an intolerance to bread and gluten developed in the Irish.
And so, this Christmas I thought it would be a good idea to focus on some gluten-gree baking. I have a lovely selection of gluten-free cookies to share. These recipes have been contributed to Irish American Mom by food bloggers all over America.
I hope you will find these recipes helpful and tasty.
