Hi, I'm Cinde, the Everyday Gluten Free Gourmet. I am a passionate home cook who loves teaching, sharing recipes and entertaining. I believe everyone can and should learn to cook and can have fun doing it.

On this site I share recipes along with tips for cooking and organizing in the kitchen and hopefully some inspiration to get you in the kitchen.

I live in Calgary with my husband Jim and my son Justin. Jim enjoys cooking and I like taking pictures but he is the photographer. Together we enjoy outdoor activities like skiing, hiking, biking and kayaking. When I’m not in the kitchen I volunteer for the Celiac Association, play squash and in warmer weather enjoy gardening and golfing…and I can always work food into these activities.

I have been experimenting with gluten free cooking since 2009 when my friend was diagnosed with celiac disease. Wow, what a challenge people face when they learn they must live on a diet free of wheat and gluten. If you weren’t interested in cooking before a diagnosis of celiac disease then that certainly adds a layer of difficulty to the challenge. As a result of my experience I have designed cooking classes to help people increase their knowledge of cooking, eating, entertaining and enjoying a gluten free lifestyle. Classes are held in my kitchen where you can discover tips and techniques while taking a little gluten-free culinary journey.

Health Care Experience

I am a registered respiratory therapist, certified respiratory and tobacco educator. As a health educator I see people with asthma, allergies and anaphylaxis so I have a soft spot for people with food allergies and intolerances. I constantly work to improve my skills as an educator and enjoy the challenge of helping people improve their health.
