Debra Maloney is an acclaimed author, speaker and consultant in the area of gluten-free gourmet cooking. Having been diagnosed with coeliac disease herself, she is a strong believer that those in similar situations should never have to sacrifice flavor in their diets. Debra has traveled worldwide completing cooking lessons and communicating with locals in order to educate herself on new flavors, techniques and ingredients. She has traveled throughout Australia to conduct cooking demonstrations and educate audiences regarding life with coeliac disease. Her cookbook, “My Gluten-Free Gourmet Kitchen,” is endorsed by Coeliac Australia.
Debra’s latest venture is a six-week trip to Italy to complete one-on-one cooking classes with master chefs, during which she will make fresh, gluten-free pastas and authentic Italian breads. She will soon be traveling to Brisbane, Australia, where she will hold corporate cooking classes in a commercial kitchen for a number of VIP clients of a well-established and respected financial planning company based in Brisbane. Debra is also working to open up a cooking school and produce her own line of gluten-free foods. Outside of the gluten-free world, Debra modifies recipes for people who are diabetic, lactose intolerant, have high cholesterol, or on a low GI diet or a low FODMAP diet.
