I found this recipe about 1 month ago. I tried it and it was great. Thank you so much for publishing it.
I also need to cook Gluten Free and often Dairy free and this worked out great.
I also made the sauce recipe and used cooked chicken instead to make a "Chicken Bechamel" Type recipe and it worked out great.

Thank you Good Luck.

I'm going to try this too! Like gateaux, I need recipes that are both gluten and dairy free, and this one is easy to adapt!
