kaiseki dinner in japan

that’s me being surprised by one of the 10 courses in a traditional kaiseki dinner in kyoto

I love food and eating all kinds of it. But in 2008, I discovered my body doesn’t like gluten and long list of other stuff. My blog is dedicated to creating amazingly delicious, healthy food that just happens to be gluten free and easy to whip up. All the recipes are personally tested by me and do not compromise on taste.

I currently live in Toronto with my loving husband D, who is also my prime taste tester and dishwasher. Both of my parents’ families are in the restaurant business and I come from a long line of amazing cooks, so I guess you could say cooking is in my genes. I’ve travelled quite a bit and eaten all sorts of stuff from all over the place so my recipes tend to be globally inspired but mostly they’re just great tasting gluten free eats that will keep you looking and feeling gorgeous. xo

    Awesome website Vanessa!
    My wife is allergic to wheat and eggs and dairy, so i cook her a lot of gluten free stuff. Really tasty looking recipes on your website here!
    I am guessing you moved on from the designer apron business?
    Take care!

    I am having trouble finding the kind of kale you recommend. Any suggestions about finding lacinato kale, or would the kind I find at my regular grocery store be okay?

      Hi Pam, I found mine at my local produce stand in Kensington Market in Toronto. It’s of Italan origin so maybe try your local European market or Whole Foods Market. It also goes by the name of dinosaur kale or Tuscan kale. Not sure what type of kale you get at your local store, and I haven’t tried with other kale varieties but if you do try it, please let me know how it is. Would love to learn more options about cooking with kale 🙂 hope this helps!
