Barbara Kafka draws on a wide variety of ingredients and techniques to create richly flavored dishes such as this gluten- and lactose-free Tandoori Chicken.

During the many decades of her career, Barbara Kafka has worked hard to bring to home cooks recipes that are delicious, approachable and ahead of the culinary curve.

This time she has tackled gluten- and lactose-free cooking, drawing on a wide vocabulary of ingredients and techniques to create richly flavored dishes that seem lacking in nothing.
