In my practice I see a large number of individuals with food intolerances who often find it challenging to source alternative options to what they used to enjoy. To have a cooking show and recipe book that helps cater to these individuals is very exciting. They will be able to feel less alone and hopefully be able to absorb some passion and knowledge from these resources to increase their quality of life.

As an environmental professional and climate change advocator I understand the importance of eating a primarily plant-based diet, for our own health and that of our world. I’m really excited about the resources that Alternative Chef Kitchen are creating to make it easier for everyday people, even those who do not suffer intolerances or allergies, to embrace more vegetables, pulses and legumes in their diets.

"While the Alternative Kitchen's cook book may not be specifically geared towards food allergy families, we have found it to be incredibly helpful in our home. The information at the beginning of the book makes understanding alternative diets, whether it's from allergies, lifestyle or choice, easier to understand. The recipes are also easy to understand and have become staples in our house! One of our favorites is the Creamy Avocado Mayo. It's heavenly!"

I have just watched the cheese cake episode of Alternative Kitchen Chef and
as usual I am in awe of these ladies. As a Naturopath and being lactose

be recommending your book and the e course to my patients who are always
looking for great recipes without gluten, dairy, soy etc. Well done! I'm
looking forward to the next one.

This is exactly the kind of cooking show mums want on TV.

I've watched a few episodes of Alternative Chef Kitchen now and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. One of the things I find with my customers is that they all have such varied food allergies. Alternative Chef Kitchen addresses this by showing us a series of different ways to make the same thing which I find really refreshing. Keep up the great work team. I can't wait to see the next episode!
