A self-trained chef, Danielle Walker is the new face of grain-free cooking, tempting foodies of all stripes with her accessible recipes for vibrant Paleo food. Paying homage to the dishes she loved in her pre-Paleo life, she has ingeniously recreated all her favourites without grains or dairy in her first cookbook. Complementing her innovative recipes with elegant photography, Danielle takes you on a culinary Paleo journey that includes everything from quick breakfasts to sinful desserts, with a long list of hearty entrees in-between.
Danielle Walker is the author and creator of the popular Paleo-food blog Against All Grain (www.againstallgrain.com). Having to deal with a diagnosis of an autoimmune disease at only twenty-two years old, and unable to alleviate her symptoms with conventional medicine, she eventually came to the conclusion that she had to remove grains, lactose, legumes, and refined sugars from her diet. When she realized that there were many others out there struggling with the same issues, she combined her culinary skills and love for food with an equal love for journalism in a campaign to end her own agony and become a source of hope for others suffering from all types of diseases and allergies. Danielle's goal has always been to never feel deprived, but rather to feel joy and satisfaction with each bite of food she eats. She and her husband, Ryan, live in the San Francisco Bay Area with their energetic toddler, Asher, and spunky dog, Ahavah.
