We are not nutritionists.

Consequently, you should be cautious following these recipes if you have specific dietary requirements.

The nutrition values are derived from public resources and use calculations adding the known dietary values of the ingredients. They are as accurate as we can make them with this methodology, but errors are possible. Further, given the dishes have not been formally tested for nutrition, you should use the stated values as guidance only.

The recipes tagged as being gluten-free are, to the best of our knowledge, free of any products with gluten in their composition. However, I am surprised to see wheat-based additives or adulteration in many commercially available ingredients.

You are advised to carefully examine the ingredients of any purchased product. Further, as many of the items you may buy will be imported, they may come from places with different duties of disclosure on dietary data.

If there is any doubt we tend to reject the item.

This cookbook has very few recipes that need processed or packaged ingredients. In almost every case we have a home-made alternative. In fact, we recommend the home-made version and offer the commercial product as a time saver.

If you are diabetic, on a salt-restricted diet, or are managing cholesterol levels then please exercise your judgement before using the recipe. In most cases the recipes in this book adopt a reasonably healthy approach, but have not been designed for managed diets.
