Finding good dips to add creaminess to your dishes when you are on a paleo diet or on the AIP (Autoimmune Protocol) is pretty tough, so I though a nightshade free Baba Ganoush was much needed!
Plantain is by far one of my favorite ingredients. It’s the perfect replacement for white potatoes (and those who are intolerant to nightshades or on the AIP know how important it is to find good subs), it makes for amazing chips and it can easily be turned into a grain free flour too.
One of the coolest things about traveling to amazing resorts is that you can meet and connect with amazing chefs from all over the world, and sometimes you can even get them to create a custom dairy free Passion Fruit Panna Cotta for you!
Little did I know about Cambodia (and Cambodian food) before I got there to visit Angkor Wat. But during my very first breakfast at the Park Hyatt in Siem Reap, when I was welcomed with a feast of local gluten & dairy free rice desserts (Akor was my absolute favorite), I discovered that traditional Khmer food is naturally free from two of the most common allergens: gluten and dairy products!
“After Eight” have always been one of my favorite treats growing up… (How could they not? I mean, did you try them?) But now that Sugar and I aren’t getting along that well anymore, I started to make my own Paleo Chocolate Peppermint Patties.
Who can better design a gourmet gluten and nightshade free bruschetta than an Italian fine dining Chef?! I meet Rolando Manesco in the beautiful glass restaurant “Theo Meo”, the Italian bistro at the gorgeous Intercontinental in Bangkok, and being that both of us are from the Milan area and ardent food lovers, we start chatting about delicious gourmet food, travel and the most amazing resorts around the globe.
