PPB welcomes Dr. Jamie Thomure to demonstrate yummy + healthy food in a series of cookbook demonstrations.  Jamie has led events with us before; she is an avid home-chef, parent and chiropractor at DuPage Family Wellness in Warrenville.  Dr. Jamie learned personally about the benefits of eating an anti-inflammatory diet in 2012.  This inspired her passion for helping people to eat real food that is good—meaning yummy and easy preparations for fresh vegetables and fruits plus the right meats and fats. Call and sign up to learn about, or more about—what keto or paleo or gluten-free (that is: simple nutritious meals) can mean for you and your family.  See you soon!

Dr. Thomure will cook from Against All Grain Celebrations by Danielle Walker

When people adopt a new diet for health or personal reasons, they worry most about the parties, holidays, and events with strong food traditions, fearing their fond memories will be lost along with the newly eliminated food groups. After suffering for years with a debilitating autoimmune disease and missing many of these special occasions herself, Danielle Walker has revived the joy that cooking for holidays can bring in Danielle Walker's Against All Grain Celebrations, a collection of recipes and menus for twelve special occasions throughout the year.

Featuring a variety of birthday cakes, finger foods to serve at a baby or bridal shower, and re-creations of backyard barbecue standards like peach cobbler and corn bread, Danielle includes all of the classics. There’s a full Thanksgiving spread—complete with turkey and stuffing, creamy green bean casserole, and pies—and menus for Christmas dinner; a New Year's Eve cocktail party and Easter brunch are covered, along with suggestions for beverages and cocktails and the all-important desserts. Recipes can be mixed and matched among the various occasions, and many of the dishes are simple enough for everyday cooking. Stunning full-color photographs of every dish make browsing the pages as delightful as cooking the recipes, and beautiful party images provide approachable and creative entertaining ideas.

Making recipes using unfamiliar ingredients can cause anxiety, and while trying a new menu on a regular weeknight leaves some room for error, the meal simply cannot fail when you have a table full of guests celebrating a special occasion. Danielle has transformed her most cherished family traditions into trustworthy recipes you can feel confident serving, whether you’re hosting a special guest with food allergies, or cooking for a crowd of regular grain-eaters.
