About the Author:
Social Scientist, Dr. Jean Duane, Alternative Cook, LLC (Centennial, Colo.) started off producing video streams for her website (alternativecook.com) in which she shows how to cook without gluten, dairy, and other food-allergens. Next, she wrote and published Bake Deliciously! Gluten and Dairy Free cookbook. She realized that living the gluten-free, allergy-free lifestyle comes down to more than the question: "What's for dinner?" It's a social issue. So she attended the University of Denver and earned a Doctorate of Philosophy in social science. Her newest book, Gluten-Centric Culture: The Commensality Conundrum highlights what she learned while conducting a national-wide study on those living the gluten-free lifestly. She produced several spots for Comcast's Video on Demand, made television appearances on PBS and on "Bringing It Home." A regular speaker and magazine writer, she won Kiplinger's "Dream in You" contest 2006.
