The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook could be one of the most loving choices in gift giving. I use to be the director of a Girl Scout’s Summer Camp and among the duties that I had to do was to separate snacks to protect girls with food allergies. Every week I had to look over records to see if I had new camper with a food allergy but concerned parents are usually sure to tell you. Thus, I have an increased awareness about this topic.
Being a fan of the musical “Rent”, I stumbled upon some information about Rent Star, Adam Pascal’s wife being the author of books which have to do with allergen free cooking. Hope you find this information below helpful. –Crystal A. Johnson, MCCN Editor
On December 19, 1998, Pascal married Cybele Chivian, daughter of Eric S. Chivian, M.D., Director of the Center for Health and the Global Environment at Harvard Medical School and 1985 Nobel Prize winner. They have two sons, Lennon Jay (born October 2001) and Montgomery Lovell (born February 2004).
Due to their children’s food allergies, Cybele created nutritious, enjoyable, safe recipes, which she included in her book The Whole Foods Allergy Cookbook: Two Hundred Gourmet & Homestyle Recipes for the Food Allergic Family. Cybele has also published a second book in December 2009, titled The Allergen-Free Bakers Handbook. – (Wikepedia)
