Elizabeth Gordon is the author of Allergy-Free Desserts (Wiley 2010) and The Complete Allergy-Free Comfort Foods Cookbook (Globe Pequot 2012) as well as Allergy-Free Delights, her blog about allergy-free cooking, baking, and living. Diagnosed with an egg and wheat allergy in 2003, she left a PhD program at Fordham University to pursue the culinary arts. After she noticed that simply inhaling wheat particles in the kitchen and handling fondant and gum paste containing egg whites aggravated her condition, rather than giving up on a life-long dream of baking professionally, she began experimenting with alternative flours and egg substitutes. Later, she combined these findings with her cake decorating expertise to create beautiful and delicious hypoallergenic treats.
Since 2007, her gluten, dairy, nut, soy, and egg-free cookies have been featured on Daily Candy’s Weekend Picks, as the Snack of the Day on Rachel Ray’s nationally syndicated talk show, and some of her recipes have appeared in Kiwi magazine. Since the publication of Allergy-Free Desserts, she has appeared on national media outlets such as The Doctors and NPR as well as in publications ranging from Coastal Living to Living Without to SELF and has written for Rachael Ray Everyday Magazine.
