Dairy-Free Cookbook, Fully Revised 2nd Edition: Over 250 Recipes for People with Lactose Intolerance or Milk Allergy by Jane Zukin. Despite the title, this book is really for lactose intolerant people, as the author lists items as "dairy-free" when they contain milk products. There is also a lack of originality. It seems that the author simply took recipies from established cookbooks, and replaced every instance of the word "butter" with "milk-free margerine", the word "milk" with "milk-free milk substitute", and "cream" with the words "non-dairy richwhip".

The Lactose-Free Family Cookbook by Jan Main and Marsha Rosen RD. The author has reinvented 150 popular recipes that rely on butter, milk and cheese--and the alternatives are every bit as delicious as the originals while still providing calcium that can be lost without dairy products. However, she uses yogurt and aged cheese in many of the recipes, so this is not good for those with milk allergies. Has good explanation of calcium absorption.
