{The purpose of this project is to fund the production of a print cookbook that will make baking fine, gluten and grain-free pastries accessible to anyone who wants to make them.}

Living a grain and gluten free lifestyle shouldn't mean that every party, holiday and celebration you participate in has to be an uncultured, painful experience where the best option you have to eat (or serve) is store bought gluten-free "treats" that taste like cardboard.

Whether you choose to eat this way by choice or by necessity, you shouldn't have to sacrifice your healthy lifestyle in order to participate in the celebratory parts of life.

After going grain free because of medical reasons*, Jenni Hulet (aka The Urban Poser) has applied her considerable culinary skills, based on years of baking pastries, cakes and other delectables, to the task of making these things accessible to people who live with food sensitivities and other dietary restrictions.  

With Jenni's passion for food, photography and writing, the only thing we need to make this happen is the tools and resources to actually create the content.....

And that's where you come in. Any donation, big or small, can help us realize this dream. We may not be ending world hunger, but we are most certainly putting a smile on the faces of as many people as possible. 

Will you partner with us?
