Niagara-based Laurie Sadowski's love of food began at a young age, but her creativity in the kitchen began when she was diagnosed with celiac disease. Adopting a vegan diet led to further interest in everything food, soon winning the vegetarian category in a national recipe cook-off and becoming a regular food columnist for her local newspaper. Her love of food and helping others resulted in freelancing as a food writer and becoming a published cookbook author. Her books, The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Bread (2011), The Allergy-Free Cook Bakes Cakes and Cookies (2013), and the upcoming The Allergy-Free Cook Makes Pies and Desserts (2014) are devoted to gluten, dairy, egg, and soy-free baked goods that taste just like the real thing. She is currently working as a recipe developer and food writer, and pursuing a masters degree in Community Music.
