What better way to master the art of beer and food pairing than by tasting? Chef and beer sommelier Tonia Wilson explains the interactions of aroma, flavour and texture along with fundamental basics on brewing and evaluating beer. The book includes seasonal recipe pairings for 35 different beer styles with explanations on why they work. Beer at My Table is a beautiful cookbook which encourages a love of beer and recognizes its place at the table.

onia’s love of food began while studying in France’s Loire Valley. A year of exquisite French cuisine inspired her to enrol in the Culinary Arts; after an impressive period at some well-regarded restaurants she was offered the position of Head Chef at the Canadian Embassy in Rome. A spontaneous departure lead to four years of incredible culinary memories, one being a gala dinner for the Queen of England. Much time was also spent visiting Europe’s famous wine regions; a great supplement to her studies towards certification with the Italian Sommelier Guild.

Tonia held the same position a few years later, this time in the land of beer, Belgium. Here she gained a passionate interest for beer and brewing. Her desire to know more about the complex beverage lead her to a more structured form of learning and she has since been certified as a Prud’homme® Beer Sommelier. Tonia currently writes for the LCBO’s Food & Drink and VIVA magazine, she regularly speaks and leads tastings for both private and corporate groups. She has been seen on the Food Network, CBC and City TV, as well as the Gambero Rosso Network in Italy. She keeps her pots on the fire with private and corporate catering, and of course making dinner for her husband and two children.

Many of you might know me as KetoInTheCity_ on Instagram but I am also a Creative Director, a blogger, an autoimmune warrior, and a single mom who is beyond passionate about the Ketogenic lifestyle. In 2018 I released three best-selling keto cookbooks, The Easy 5-Ingredient Ketogenic Diet Cookbook, The Big Book of Keto and Keto In 30 Minutes.


My Ketogenic journey began in January of 2016, but my experimentation with various WOE (ways of eating) began much earlier. I was diagnosed with Psoriasis when I was 18 and Psoriatic Arthritis when I was 19. It wasn't until about a decade later that I started correlating inflammation in my body with food.

This timely book solves the problem. Its recipes focus on dishes that are the most problematic for gluten-sensitive cooks, such as main-course dinners that typically have a grain component, as well as breakfasts and desserts, which also usually have wheat or gluten. In their place, The Gluten-Free Instant Pot Cookbook offers up tasty and creative gluten-free alternatives that cook up fast and delectably in the pressure cooker. Everyone in the household will love these dishes, even those who are not eating gluten-free.

From hearty breakfast dishes like Creamy Poblano Frittata or Caribbean Breakfast Burritos, through substantial and warming soups like a Creamy and Spicy Butternut Squash Soup or a Pumpkin Black Bean Chili, and crowd-pleasing dinner dishes like Mom's Old-Fashioned Pot Roast, Gluten-Free Lasagna with Meat Sauce, and Pork Tenderloin Marsala with Wheat-Free Pasta, these are spectacular recipes that cook up lightning-fast in the electric pressure cooker.

The Instant Pot and its cousins are also surprisingly powerful tools for making desserts, and the offerings here—all completely gluten-free—including Apple Cinnamon Bread Pudding, New York Style Cheesecake, Double Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake, and a scrumptious Mexican Chocolate Pound Cake.

Add the power and convenience of the Instant Pot and its cousins to your gluten-free diet with The Gluten-Free Instant Pot Cookbook.

Keep your body in tip-top shape with the one diet that all doctors love—and with the speed and convenience of pressure-cooking!

The DASH Diet, developed at the National Institutes of Health in the US, is a low-salt, low-sugar, low-fat diet that is good for everyone—but especially for people with heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, or excessive weight. That's a lot of us! Remarkably, nearly one-half of the population has one or more of those health issues. For those who luckily do not, the DASH diet is a terrific way to keep your body in optimum health and to ward off problems down the road. The DASH diet is the diet most often recommended by cardiologists.

Until now, there has been no cookbook for tasty and fast DASH meals in the Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker (or "multi-cooker"). In Dinner in a DASH, veteran healthy-cookbook author Nancy S. Hughes delivers 75 recipes that get you from here to a nutritious and delectable dinner in a flash. You'll get all the minerals and proteins you need without an excess of saturated fats, salt, or sugar.

These are delicious meals that don't compromise on flavor. From a homey and comforting Marinara Chicken with Parmesan to an adventuresome plate of Shrimp-Stuffed Poblano Peppers, and from an elegant Salmon on Spinach with Tarragon Mustard Sauce to a casual and carefree Flank Steak with Mushrooms, you'll do your body a world of good while enjoying every minute. Each of the recipes comes with complete nutritional data, and the book opens with a wealth of tips and tricks for mastering the Instant Pot and other electric pressure cookers. For fast and easy dinners full of flavor and nutrients, this is an indispensable book.

Comfort foods have the power to seep straight to our innermost core: the strength emanating from a hearty breakfast on a cold winter’s morning, the beverage that fosters a long-lasting friendship, the reverence and reassurance that wafts from a religious offering, the giddy excitement that seasons a wedding feast, a soup that becomes a salve for incurable homesickness or that imperfect dessert that only reinforces our belief a sense of eternal happiness. Unassuming, ordinary, simple and familiar, comfort foods offer the recipes for solace, strength, and nourishment, facilitating an escape into the soft creases of contentment.
