I recently had my first gout attack (ouch!) and was looking at gout cookbooks on Amazon. I wondered if anyone here was similarly afflicted and had recommendations. There were so many I couldn't decide between them!

Ouch, I was prone to it and was allergic to  alopurinal. Doc started me on very small dose and built up from there. Thankfully, I haven't had an attack for 5 years. I used to get it in my ankles and knees. Never in the big toe like most people. At the time, they just gave me a list of things to avoid. Beef, pork, stocks made from either. I remember mushrooms set it off one time. Best of luck, ain't no fun.

I join @chileheadmike in wishing you well.  Fortunately, I am not allergic to alopurinal and carry it with me whenever we go away.  Mine gets me in my big toe.  Strangely, I was never told what not to ingest.  If you see a book on Amazon you are interested in, and post a question about it, my experience is that folks who have bought whatever you want to buy are good at answering.
