 There are millions of people in North American living with a form of gluten intolerance called celiac disease.  They prepare their meals without gluten which is a protein found in wheat.

  Some of your wedding guests may be gluten-free. Now they can enjoy dessert.

  Today the gluten-free diet is recognized by the medical community and the general public.

  Planning a miniature gluten-free chocolate groom’s cake that Carol Fenster could eat at her son’s wedding was no problem.   She is one of the world’s most respected authorities on gluten-free cooking.

  She used a gluten free chocolate cake recipe from her cookbook Cooking Free.
