Dear Rene
I don't have examples of recipes that avoid maize. You can obtain the 'South African Cookbook for Food Allergies & Food Intolerance" by Hilda Lategan for recipes that avoid allergens. Contact Hilda Lategan, who is also a dietitian, on (012) 546-6410) or send her an e-mail at: . Also visit the Website of the SA Allergy Association at: for more information on maize allergy and foods that should be avoided.
