Hi, I'm Cinde, the Everyday Gluten Free Gourmet. I am a passionate home cook who loves cooking, teaching and sharing recipes. I believe cooking is a life skill so why not learn to cook and 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 but he is the photographer for everything you see on the website. 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.
