The Inclusive Table (Paperback)
When Hollywood caterer Gwen Kenneally was approached by one of her clients to create a Thanksgiving feast that included paleo, vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options while still maintaining a somewhat traditional holiday menu, she embraced the challenge and turned the complex request into a harmonious, nearly traditional offering with ample holiday fare for everyone seated at the table. That meal birthed this cookbook, an extensive recipe collection to nourish and delight pretty much anyone who will be seated at your own table, holiday or otherwise. Gwen takes the guesswork out of what consitutes paleo, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and allium sensivitity and presents recipes for all meals, and snacks too. Her catering adventures have taken her from movie sets to mansions, from yoga retreats to soup kitchens, from high profile political events to weddings and baby showers. She's no stanger to eccentric requests and food proclivities, and constantly adapts menu favorites to meet her client's expectations. Gwen is known on the Hollywood circuit for her inviting and unexpected flavor profiles, her no-fuss approach and always bringing the taste of home to whatever leaves her kitchen. "Whenever we have the opportunity to be with treasured family and friends to break bread," she says, "it's a chance to savor togetherness, share ideas and express love through food and conversation." A one stop recipe collection for today's sensibiliites, The Inclusive Table is Gwen's third cookbook.
