About this project

Help Me Produce a Cooking Show for People With Food Restrictions The History: I was diagnosed with NCGS (Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity), Dairy Intolerance and borderline Type 2 Diabetes a few years ago. It's hard enough to find any kind of food products for one of the three restrictions, but all three was near impossible. So I started experimenting with substitutes for gluten, dairy and sugar. After much trial and error, I began sharing my cooking to friends and family. Whether they were on restricted diets or not, I began to see how families could save time and costs by cooking cook one meal that everyone could enjoy. I wondered how many people were living with restricted diets and was amazed at my findings:

American Population’s Dairy and Gluten Restricted Community* •  93 million suffer from Lactose Intolerance or Dairy Allergies •  24.8 million have Diabetes -  6.2 million of diabetics have Type 1 Diabetes (diagnosed as children) -  620 thousand of Type 1 Diabetics also have Celiac “Disease •  3.1 million have Celiac Disease •  46.5 million suffer from Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity * Sources: en.citizendium.org, census.gov, foodintol.com, diabetes.org

Years later, there are many gluten free products and mixes, and many dairy free (vegan), even a few restaurants, but there is not a cooking show, and that is what my project is about. The Project: Intolerant Cooking's first season includes 13 episodes and 26 recipes. Justin Thyme demonstrates how to cook family pleasing meals in a quick, easy way. His quirky and compulsive nature makes cooking recipes for gluten and dairy restricted diets fun and entertaining.

All recipes have been taste-tested and enjoyed by those on restricted and non-restricted diets. Most families have the same diet mix. Imagine how wonderful it is to create menus for the all family members while accommodating members who have these dietary restrictions.

Gluten and dairy free recipes* for the first season include: Tandoori Chicken, Hot and Cold Appetizers, Chicken Pot Pie, Chicken Cacciatore, Stuffed Eggplant, Baked Pear Pie, Pad Thai, Vegetarian Pizza, Vegetable Casserole, Popovers, Baked Shrimp and Scallop Normandy, Baked Macaroni and Cheese, Carrot Cake, Flourless Quiche. *Subject to change. More information is available at http://www.intolerantcooking.com Where You Come In: Although our production costs for an entire season is unbelievably cheap, we still need help. An that's where you come in! Donations will cover pre-production, production, and post-production expenses including: SAG talent contract, set dressing, food, props, camera, lights, sound, wardrobe, make-up and hair, and editing. Your consideration is greatly appreciated. Why it Matters: I want this cooking show to reach and help people of all ages who live everyday with gluten and dairy food restrictions. I want them to embrace their issues and have fun in the process. Your donations will make this dream a reality and I can't thank you enough in advance for your contribution. No matter how small your donation, it will help people view their glasses as half full instead of half empty.

It's OK to be Intolerant!

Steven Jay (alias Justin Thyme)
