Dédé = Desserts

By the way, I don’t want to come across as tooting my own horn, but baking is what I do! Dessert creation is my lifeblood. Robin teases me because even if I were not creating desserts for all of you, I would be in the Test Kitchen doing it anyway!

I have written 17 cookbooks on sweets, baking and desserts (as well as several books on cooking, including The Low-FODMAP Diet Step by Step), so rest assured, you will not find better low FODMAP dessert recipes anywhere else! And I am Monash University trained and accredited by FODMAP Friendly, so you can rest assured that these recipes will work with your low FODMAP lifestyle.
