About the Author
Over the course of two weeks in December 2010, Jenni Hulet went from being an active mother, yoga teacher, and chef to being unable to get out of bed because of uncontrollable pain and muscle spasms. After months of unproductive doctor visits, she began to fear that all her creative pursuits were over and that she would have to resign herself to a life of pain management. Eventually, a doctor was able to identify an emerging autoimmune condition that, though devastating, could be recovered. Jenni was diagnosed as severely gluten and casein intolerant and was put on a strict diet and supplement regimen to heal her ravaged body.
The process of facing down her worst fears and walking a lengthy path of recovery inspired a new expression for Jenni’s passion: to bring beauty, flavor, and freedom to those struggling with the fear and difficulty of living with health restrictions. It was out of this vision that her blog, The Urban Poser, was born. Bringing together her culinary skills and love of beautiful, celebratory food with her compassion for the suffering, The Urban Poser is a way for Jenni to overcome the adversity in her life with the creativity and exuberance she had once thought were gone forever.
"Jenni Hulet's book, My Paleo Patisserie, is a feast of visual delights and enticing recipes. For anyone who thinks living gluten-free must be about deprivation, your socks will be blown off by the matcha green tea cream puffs with ganache, French apple tart, and black-bottomed banana pies. And croquembouche! Whoever thought there would be croquembouche on a special needs diet? It's such a beautiful book."
