Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the cookbook will include 100 gluten-free recipes submitted by the country's most notable and innovative chefs. The NFCA decided to create this cookbook to raise awareness of the growing need for gluten-free dishes, to celebrate the creativity of chefs and to inspire home cooks.
"We know there are professional chefs out there with award-winning gluten-free recipes looking to inspire home cooks," says Chef Jehangir Mehta, an executive chef, restaurateur and NFCA chef ambassador.

The NFCA-approved panel of judges, comprised of experts and home testers, will select the top 100 recipes from the entire pool of submissions based on taste, ease of preparation, and overall appeal. The submissions will be tested to ensure that the recipes can be made in a home kitchen.
The top 10 favorite recipes will be highlighted in the cookbook and those winning chefs will receive complimentary GREAT Kitchens gluten-free training by the NFCA.
