Most of the recipes in our recipe stash have been devised by FoodsMatter's Michelle Berriedale Johnson who has been inventing recipes and writing recipe books for nearly 30 years. All the recipes are tested on a wide range of friends and family, several of whom are on dairy free, gluten free, wheat free, egg free or nut free diets.

Because so many allergy sufferers have very specific food intolerances and allergies, Michelle tries to make the recipes as flexible – and as inspiring – as possible so that, although they can be followed to the letter, they can also be altered to accommodate specific food intolerances or allergies. Hopefully, encouraged by her liberal substitution of ingredients, allergy cooks will become more daring with their own experiments.

You can buy all of Michelle's books here on Amazon.
