Gluten-Free Chef Caroline Byron Launch Event for New Book Gluten Free, Naturally

On Monday, June 18, gluten-free chef Caroline Byron celebrated the launch of her new book Gluten Free, Naturally, at the Ladurée Private Garden in Soho in NYC. Attendees included actress Ana Villafañe (best known for her portrayal of pop icon Gloria Estefan in the Broadway musical On Your Feet!), designer Carly Cushnie (of Cushnie et Ochs), and Vogue editor Edward Barsamian

At the summer soiree, guests sipped custom cocktails, tried delicious gluten-free canape’s created by Caroline Byron and tasted delectable macaroons by Ladurée. 

After contracting Lyme Disease at the age of 10, Caroline Byron has battled with health problems for much of her life. While this didn’t stop her from forging a successful modeling career and retraining as a chef, Caroline became increasingly frustrated by these health issues. She decided to completely overhaul her diet and go gluten-free. The change in her health was astonishing.


Since then, she has devoted her time to developing a range of delicious recipes that are all naturally free from gluten, showing that you can enjoy a wide range of foods without resorting to pre-packaged ‘free-from’ items. Her skills as a chef and genuine love of food have led her to create a balanced collection of dishes, where the focus is on flavor and enjoyment as well as health. Although she includes healthy broths and probiotic smoothies, Caroline also finds space for her much-loved Gluten-free Fried Chicken and Melting Mac and Cheese, as well as a wide variety of baking recipes. With a huge range of tempting dishes to choose from, you will never feel like you’re missing out.

Ladurée Macarons and Ladurée Chocolate books

A delicious calorie free present for the holidays. Did you know Ladurée has two shops in NYC now?

In the middle of the twentieth century, Pierre Desfontaines, cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, created the first Ladurée macaron by having the genius to stick two macaron cookies together and fill them with a flavorful ganache.

Ever since then, the preparation has stayed the same. Each season Ladurée celebrates this little round cake that’s crispy outside and soft inside, a perfect balance of aromas and textures, by creating new flavors. Each year the palette of flavors and colors grows, from the classic chocolate or raspberry to festive macarons, exotic flavours for certain destinations, fashion designers, perfumes etc.

This book presents, for the first time, each of the eighty Ladurée macarons, their aromas, inspirations, trend books and of course all of the recipes to make them at home.

At the end of the book there is a practical, step-by-step section to show exactly how Ladurée’s chefs make the cookies and the ganache fillings so you can be sure to succeed in making them too.

Contents:
Introduction: A little history of the macaron
