Cooking Allergy-Free for a Change
A nut-allergic student hungers to become a special-diet chef
Nguyen [pronounced NOO-yin] is severely allergic to tree nuts and her younger brother, Conrad, is highly allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, fish, dairy and eggs. Growing up surrounded by these serious allergies gave Nguyen an insiders understanding of special dietary needs. Now she wants to advance her cooking skills to become a personal chef for families just like hers.
