Jennifer Eloff was a true pioneer in the low-carb cooking world. She has been writing cookbooks since 1994 when she lived in Canada.
Jennifer’s specialty is breads and baked goods and many of the things that have become standard practice for most of us were her innovations. I became acquainted with Jennifer through her blogs and by e-mail and now consider her a good friend although we have never actually met. (I’m hoping she and her husband, Ian, will join us on the Low Carb Cruise in May, the closest thing we have to a low-carb convention.)
Jennifer hatched the idea to put together a cookbook that was in fact, really 5 cookbooks in one by 5 different authors. I was invited to be a 6th, but sadly had to refuse as I was already committed to a book of my own. This book is the first of a series, however, and I am definitely on board for the 2nd installment. Low-Carbing Among Friends also contains contributions from 6 well-known personalities in the low-carb community, who served as advisers and supporters.
The timing was perfect for this new book, which is not only low-carb but gluten-free as well. It is due for release on November 11, but you can get a substantial discount by pre-ordering it from the website (http://amongfriends.us/index.php) before the official launch date. The first print run is already 80% sold out, so hop on over to the website to preview some of the yummy things this team of friends has cooked up for you and place your order while there are still a few books left. But don’t worry, a second printing is already underway so there will still be time to pick up a few copies for Christmas gifts.
