Olivia Superfree

Gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, soy-free, and other allergen-free people in the Seattle area could have cause for rejoicing– say hello to a new brand of allergen-free bread and baked goods called Olivia Superfree.

The master baker behind the brand is well-known to celiacs and others with food allergies already as Wheatless in Seattle.

Wedding Cake

A friend just emailed me the following link. It says that Chelsea Clinton’s wedding cake was gluten-free and vegan.

While that may sound weird to people eating the standard American diet, it’s great press for allergen-free diets. Yes, we can have gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and whatever else-free cake! (more…)
