More About the Author
Annalise is one of the Food Philosophers®, two sisters who have collaborated to become a voice of reason in a world of mealtime disorder. After being diagnosed with celiac disease in late 2002, Annalise devoted herself to developing gluten-free baking recipes that taste just as good (if not better than) their wheat flour counterparts. Gourmet magazine wrote an article about her and featured several of her recipes in their November 2005 issue. Since then, her work has been featured in newspapers and magazines across the country.
Annalise is the author of four gluten-free cookbooks that are sold in North America and overseas. Translated editions are available in South America and Eastern Europe. An expanded and revised edition of her best-selling book, Gluten-Free Baking Classics (April 2006), was released in September 2008. Gluten-Free Baking Classics for the Bread Machine, a collection of recipes developed for the Zojirushi bread machine, was released in April 2009. Annalise and her sister, Claudia Pillow then joined forces to write The Gluten-Free-Good Health Cookbook, (released January 2010). The focus of this unique work is on managing daily food-related decisions in order to strengthen the immune system, prevent disease and lose weight by eating real food. It provides food choice explanations and guidance, cooking advice, and more than 100 flavorful, culturally diverse (gluten-free) recipes. Her newest work, Gluten-Free Baking Classics - The Heirloom Collection was released in November 2014.
Annalise works with gluten-intolerant individuals and support groups across North America and gives talks about gluten-free cooking and baking. After years of writing for her foodphilosopher.com website (one of the first gluten-free websites in the country, dating back to 2003), she now blogs sporadically at mygluten-freetable.com. She lives in the New York metropolitan area and loves to cook and entertain (and as a result, spends a lot of time on a treadmill and doing weight resistance training).
