 Meet Jackie:

Jackie Ourman

I am a food lover and mom of 3 with celiac disease and multiple food allergies. I completed Culinary Management School in August 2012 at the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) in New York City and received the Nespresso Top Student Award for being the student who has demonstrated overall excellence in their studies and industry-preparedness. I am currently enrolled in the Culinary Arts program at ICE and am excited to be in a professional culinary environment. My blog, Jackie Ourman.com / Celiac & Allergy Friendly Epicurean (CAFE) was created as a means for me to share recipes, experiences dining out and other resources to help navigate food allergies and celiac in and out of the kitchen.
