About Me

Colette Martin

I am a food allergy mom and an expert on how to bake allergen-free. When my son was diagnosed with multiple food allergies, I had to re-invent how my family ate. Having first learned to bake in my grandmother’s kitchen with wheat, butter, milk, and eggs, I understand first-hand what it means to transform a kitchen to accommodate multiple food allergies.

In 2001 my son was diagnosed with eosinophilic esophagitis, triggered by allergies to wheat, milk, eggs, soy and peanuts. While this diagnosis ended a ten-year struggle to understand his illness, it was the beginning of learning how to eat allergy-free.

At Learning to Eat Allergy-Free I share research, recipes, products and tips on eating allergen-free and gluten-free.

My first book, Learning to Bake Allergen-Free: A Crash Course for Busy Parents on Baking without Wheat, Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, Soy or Nuts, was published in June 2012. Click here to find out more about the book.
